When Betsy Johnson opposed gun safety reforms

Four years ago I wrote the op-ed linked below, following the mass shooting of school children in Parkland, Florida. Oregon’s weak response to that national tragedy can be attributed in part to state senator Betsy Johnson. She left the Democratic party last year and is now running for governor as an unaffiliated candidate. Fans claim she’ll be an unbiased mediator, help us cut through partisan strife to tackle urgent issues like gun safety. Her record says otherwise.
