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.
