    Heritage Action (political arm of the Heritage Foundation) has started a “Back the Blue” campaign. As part of this campaign they have created a “Police Pledge” page that simply allows citizens and politicos to pledge their support for the men and women in blue. I signed it and I hope you and the staff will also. Just go to https://heritageaction.com/policepledge to make your pledge.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnzPEyTpByU . This is an amazing video. You really need to check to see if maybe you can get them to tour Western Washington before the election. Would definitely be comic relief for everyone and could provide an amazing platform for you, Ed, Peter, and maybe even Loren to connect with voters.

    Would be so cool if Culp can win and the R’s can take both chambers. You, Peter, and Ed could have a lot fun next session. I would definitely be following your reports very closely.

    Dear Rep. John Braun,


    My name is Deborah Ward and I live in Winlock, WA. I am a mother of two teenage girls, middle school and high school, and a small business owner. I must also state that I am neither Democrat nor Republican, nor am I left or right. I am an American mother concerned for my children’s well-being and safety.

    I was raised hunting and fishing with my family in the Great Northwest. We were taught gun safety as well as gun responsibility. Rifles and fishing poles were tools used to help fill our freezer every year to feed the ten of us. Ammunition was precious, so we used only what we needed. Not one person in my 75 member-strong family has ever used an AK or AR to fill the need for food. These rifles are HUMAN killers not hunting rifles. But I guess that’s why it’s the choice of gunmen of mass killings. I believe it’s called a high-kill ratio.

    So when I HEAR the cries of other mothers’ children in the media, I feel ashamed because WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS. So instead of adding to their cries, I will try to offer some solutions. I hope this will spur others to work together as a society to STOP this travesty. How can we mandate that all kids attend school and then we refuse to keep them safe? I propose we start at the top with five suggestions:


    1. Propose and pass a bill that mandates until the virus of gun violence is stopped, all lawmakers and government/elected officials must spend 1/3 of their working time at schools and facilities targeted by gunmen. With more eyes on the ground we’ll hopefully be able to get a better handle on the situation. Information is one key to success. Lawmakers and government/elected officials also must participate at school once a year during training on how to avoid gunmen. All government employee, elected officials, appointees, etc. must comply-no exceptions.


    2. All parents/guardians will be allowed to volunteer up to 6 hours a month in their schools to help provide safety for their children. All employers will consider this paid leave. No one is better at protecting kids on an average than their own parents/guardians. Again with more eyes in the field more information can be collected. With people available to sound an alert or notice something important we may reach 0 count.


    3. Our goal as Americans is 0 mass shootings for 1 year. When reached, this goal will be extended for 2 year increments as necessary.


    4. Americans will limit the use of AK and AR rifles to military or police use only. If you want to collect, the gun must be rendered harmless. If you want to use an assault rifle-join the armed forces or join law enforcement. These organizations will teach and be responsible for all legal assault rifles. These tools were made for these organizations.


    5. All legal firearm ownership will be granted at age 21 to graduates from a school of firearm safety. An underage person may discharge a firearm only in the presence of a licensed graduate. All students must pass a full local, state and federal background check in order to be accepted into the class. All gun owners must pass a mandatory background check every two years in order to retain firearm possession.


    Most of the above suggestions and format came from Washington teenagers that I simply asked ‘How do you feel about mass shootings’ and ‘What do you think we can do to have 0 count mass shootings in America?’


    I and other American parents nation-wide will continue to fight for the safety of our children. Let’s work together for this goal as a nation before our children have no where to go but home for their education needs.

    I’ll leave you with this quote from OUR founding fathers:


    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.


    That, to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.


    That, whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.


    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government and to provide new Guards for their future security.


    Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.


    Finally, I would like to thank you for your service and dedication. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government and to provide new Guards for their future security.


    Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.


    Finally, I would like to thank you for your service and dedication. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


    Sincerely,

    I thought you id a good job in the state senate, but you campaign ad that says you want to go to Washington to speed things up indicates a complete lack of understanding of the Washington political process and how little a new senator can get done. you should pull this ad and create one that tells the voters what goals you have as a senator.

    Sen Braun,


    Because you will lead W&M.


    In August UW came begging for $$ for their BILLION in back-log in building repairs. “Oh WALEG, pls help us.”

    Then this comes out today. They want you to help them with this. Do they think we aren’t watching?

    They need to take care of what they have first. Someone needs to call them out on this.


    Heads Up.

    While I’m a democrat I generally believe that you are doing a good job. In your last two mailings you mentioned your opposition to the carbon tax and other"costly and ineffective environmental regulations…"

    Do you have a plan to stop global warning and environmental exploitation and degradation?
