To the editor,
I have a slightly different view than the one expressed by Leon Freeburg in his recent letter about school shootings, though he does mention money and power motivating politicians’ approach to school safety.

Let’s take the money out of politics

Written by

To the editor,
If you want Congress to act to stop gun violence, take the money out of politics. Presently corporations and special interest organizations can buy and own our elected officials through massive dumps of money into their campaigns. Ten senators alone have received amounts ranging from $7.7 million to $2.8 million from the National Rifle Association. How can they possibly pass gun control legislation when they are being paid indirectly from the very gun manufacturers we are asking them to regulate?

To the editor,
The U.S. Constitution is the foundation of the western world. Why is our leadership continually attempting to chisel away at it? Life, liberty, freedom of religion and the right to bear arms have been secured for us for over 200 years by our Constitution. These rights will be at risk at an Article V convention (con-con) in response to at least 34 states signing on. We are only six states away from the 34 and if they get the other six, they would have inherent power to rewrite the Constitution.

To the editor,
The Wisconsin State Journal reported that Judge Rebecca Dallet violated her own recusal rule, a recusal rule that Dallet has tried to use as an issue in her campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court.
