Gun vote shows politicians have been bought and paid for by the NRA

The result of the gun control votes in the U.S. Senate sickened me ("Defeat leaves gun control backers at a loss for strategy," April 19).

I truly believe that the NRA has paid off many of our politicians and that this is something that should be investigated
