With the Way the Universal Background Check laws were passed and the general tyranny of the urban centers in Oregon and Washington, I believe the State Constitutions need to be amended in both states. The Federal Government was set up to prevent highly populated colonies, primarily in the mid-Atlantic area (New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland) from pushing around the more lightly populated states. That is why the Senate has an equal number of Senators from each State. Both Oregon and Washington State Governments are set up with both the House and Senate elected by legislative areas determined by population with little or no difference between the state houses. This turns what should be a Republic into a Democracy, ruled by the masses in the urban centers. Both states need to have the State Legislatures modified to have the House of Representatives elected as it is now (Population based), but the Senate needs to be elected with each county receiving an equal number of Senators.
