LETTER: Senator represents all her constituents

To the Editor:

[In response to the writer of a letter to the editor, "Shocked by N.C. Senator's position on gun control," which appeared in the Feb. 7 edition]

N.C. Senator Ellie Kinnaird is a representative of all her constituents, not just the people who are assault rifle and high-capacity magazine advocates as you are. Many people do not agree with your opinion, yet you obviously feel that people with opinions different from yours have no right to their opinions and should not be represented by elected officials. That attitude is a sad commentary for our democratic system of choice of ideas and opinions and public representation.
