Regarding “Video gambling company named in federal probe gave money to Missouri politicians” (Oct. 12): I don’t understand the confusion about gambling machines in Missouri. Common sense tells you that they are gambling devices, and therefore are illegal. Why don’t the state police seize every one they find? If the owners are so sure that they aren’t gambling devices, let them go to court to prove it and get the machines back.
