A Nov. 9 letter titled, “Mock election: Gun comment disturbing,” by Candy Kreger objected to a young man from Jefferson Elementary who voted in a mock election for a candidate based on the candidate’s stance on gun control. I wouldn’t want that young man to think, based on Ms. Kreger’s personal belief, that the reasons for his choice were inappropriate in any way. On the contrary, he seems to have a better understanding of the importance of constitutional issues than does Ms. Kreger. That young man can feel proud of his ability to see through the current clutter of political rhetoric and political-correctness terrorism. What scares me is the number of people like Ms. Kreger who are so anxious to trivialize the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
