Jeff Treat (Your Views, April 27) lauds “the 54 senators” who “stood with the Constitution” and voted against background checks. Actually, 54 senators voted for background checks. The measure didn't pass because of cloture requirements that it could only pass with 60 votes. It's confusing to realize that the majority doesn't rule in the U.S. Senate. Most Americans favor background checks — 85 percent to 90 percent in the latest polls.
