It took a little while longer than the response from Rep. Bonamici, but I got a response back from Sen. Merkley. This one still looks form letter-ish of course, but he mentions the Ruger petition specifically, Rep. Bonamici's form letter did not. Apparently many people are taking advantage of Ruger's submission form! These are both the federal level congress critters I have heard back from, no response as yet from any of the state level reps or senators. Also interesting he doesn't take the same kind of hard line anti response that Bonamici did.
