Democratic Senator Who Cut NRA Election Ad, Now Suddenly a Fan of Killing 2nd Amendment


They don’t get any slimier than Joe Manchin, the former Governor of West Virginia, who ran for the Senate by cutting an ad of himself firing a rifle and boasting of his NRA endorsement. But now, Manchin is saying that “everything is on the table” when it comes to terminating the Bill of Rights.

 

 

Sen. Joe Manchin, a conservative Democrat from West Virginia and “proud gun owner,” said Monday he believes last week’s Connecticut elementary school shooting should be the tipping point in the debate over limiting gun rights.

Manchin said he’s committed to bringing “the dialogue that would bring a total change.”

“And I mean a total change,” he added.

Manchin and Warner have A ratings from the NRA, which have proven to be absolutely worthless because the moderate Democrat has now become an endangered species. There are only open leftists and leftists who butch up like Manchin does.

When asked about his “Annie Get Your Gun” ad, Manchin replied, “Let me just say what we did at that time and the way we used it was in the most responsible manner. I didn’t do it to do anything but show you can use guns in a responsible manner.”

Yes, shooting a rifle to pretend you support the 2nd Amendment and then trashing it once in office is the only responsible use of a rifle that the left can imagine.

    Hard to believe that an elected official would say one thing to get elected then another aftert election

      Upside down, Politician's are all the same

    Anyway you look at, or call it by another name, murder is still murder. The left's hypocrisy galls me. They all of sudden want gun control when a shooting occurs, but cheer and fund for the millions upon million being slaughtered by Planned Murderhood, fetuses that have no say so, or voice on whether they live or die. Yes, twenty young children being murdered in cold blood is horrific, but 60 million dead fetuses are a national disgrace.

    Obama's fake tears for Sandy Hook was another insult. He voted for infanticide, and is a strong abortion supporter. After all, no parent's child should be punished with a baby.

      If you want to draw moral equaivalence, fine. Most Americans don't. And merely outlawing abortion won't end it. The growing recognition of as much is why it was legalized in the first place.

    Another phony Democrat. Come get my gun Manchin.

    Just an idea; but maybe, instead of wetting our pants over " assault weapons", we should be looking at the
    "assaulters" and how to deal with them ?

    Joe Manchin, I've got one thing to say to you: you're a traitor to this country. America will never forget what you've become. You're a dishonest politician and the American people don't want people like you in politics. A good person that leads the US, whether a state or all fifty states, keeps his/her word till the very end. You are giving-in to the enemy (in this case the anti-gun Left). You're no different from Obama. Obama was dishonest on a number of occasions, so why should we trust you if you going to play the same game as Obama is doing? You've proven to be a weak politician, now the American people are going to have to deal with you out of thousands, if not, millions of anti-gun Leftists in the US and also the anti-gun International. You've given the Left one extra troop (you) for their "army" to fight against a Constitutional right that was given to us by the Founding Fathers. This is un-American and you know it. If what your saying regarding limiting the 2nd amendment is true, then you are a waste of time for the American people as a politician. Get out of office now!

      America has plenty of dishonest politician's Obummer and his cohorts are at the top of the list

    Another lesson learned don't vote for a Democrat ever – no matter how moderate he may seem.

    Sooner or later their True colors come out.

    Least we forget, it takes a 2/3 majority to overturn a constitutional amendment plus 3/4's of the states must ratify it. I seriously doubt that right now, they can get this done. It would be easier for them to do it through the courts, Supreme. And, that too would take some dying off of the Justices to get it done.

    Repealing an amendment is very difficult. That's the same problem with trying to get rid of Obamacare now.

    Manchin, like most "conservative" democrats is as usual a snake in the grass. I wouldn't trust a democrat to be dogcatcher now. All are leftists no matter what that they say.

    Memo to Sen. Joe Manchin:
    Re: 2nd Amendment, and the American revolution. General George Washington didn't use his right to free speech to defeat the British, he shot them!

    Manchin either has completely lost his mind, or there is some "party discipline" we don't know about.

  • benjabomacha

    Manchin should do the honorable thing & repent ,

    Step #1 is Insert the rifle barrel in his lying mouth
    Step #2 Make certain that there is a round in the chamber
    Step #3 Insert his big toe (either foot) in the trigger guard
    Step #4 Depress the trigger with his toe
    Step #5 No further steps required, step #4 solved his problem

    How is he a "phony Democrat"?
