Ayotte Supports 'No Fly, No Buy' Gun Bill

Jun 20, 2016

As the U.S. Senate debates measures to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists, New Hampshire's Senator Kelly Ayotte is throwing her support to a proposal drafted by Maine Senator Susan Collins.

The plan would bar people on the TSA's no-fly and selected lists from buying guns. It also creates an appeals process where people wrongly blocked from buying gun could recover legal fees from the federal government.

"I hope that on both sides of the aisle we can work together to get a result to the American people and make sure that we get something done, so terrorists cannot purchase firearms.," Ayotte said, "But Mr. President, let's also make sure that we continue to go after ISIS, and defeat ISIS."

Ayotte's support for the measure comes as top senate Democrats and Republicans are offering Orlando-inspired bills similar to ones that failed last year.
