As you know, Senator Suzanne Bonamici resigned her Oregon Senate seat to seek the Congressional seat held by her family friend, David Wu.
This was great news for gun owners.
Bonamici was a reliable follower of anti-gun zealot, Floyd Prozanski, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee and worked overtime to kill or pervert pro-gun bills. Bonamici also sat on that committee, and always voted with Prozanski against your rights. So it was with much relief that we bid her farewell. Of course, the idea of her going to Congress is dreadful, but at least she’s out of our hair.
Yesterday the Oregonian reported that Bonamici’s vacant Senate seat is being filled by Elizabeth Steiner Hayward.
We don’t know much about her except that calls were made on her behalf by friends Ron Wyden and Earl Blumenauer, both of whom are committed gun grabbers. There is not much reason to be optimistic.
