Rodney Tom is a major-league asshole, but he's actually got a decent record on gun control. His NRA rating is "D". There are other Democrats still in the D caucus with A or B ratings -- Steve Hobbs (D-44, Mill Creek, Snohomish, Lake Stevens), Steve Conway (D-29, South Tacoma, Spanaway, Lakewood), the departing Derek Kilmer (D-26, Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, Key Peninsula)> Kilmer's seat is vacant because he's heading to the other Washington to sit in the House of Representatives.

There are possibly soft spots on the Republican side, too. Steve Litzow (R-41, Mercer Island, South Bellevue, Newport Hills, South Lake Sammamish area) and Andy Hill (R-45, Kirkland, Novelty Hill, Sammamish, Woodinville) might be worth looking at, in terms of getting a vote on a moderate or weak bill addressing at least some of the most egregious holes.

Better to pass a weak bill than nothing; at least you've turned the bus around a little.
