U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte cast one of the deciding votes yesterday to sink legislation that would have required background checks for guns bought over the internet or at gun shows.

 

The New Hampshire Republican was one of 46 senators who voted to block the proposal by West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin and Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. It required 60 votes to advance under Senate rules, but only received 54.

 

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat, voted for it.

Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire released the following statement on S.AMDT.715, the Manchin-Toomey Amendment to S649 (the gun legislation which Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced last week). The Manchin-Twoomey Amendment failed to meet the 60 vote threshold with a vote of 54 -46.  New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte voted against it, while Sen. Jeanne Shaheen voted for it.
