My Senator, Joe Manchin took to YouTube today to tell his constituents that “sure as Hell” no one will take our guns;
In the video Manchin says (from Washington Times);
“Hi, I’m Joe Manchin, and I’ve been hearing rumors and lies about my position on guns,” the West Virginia Democrat says in a 30-second YouTube video published Wednesday and titled “Joe Manchin Talks Honest About Guns.” “I want to be very clear and tell you: I’m a proud gun owner. Nobody’s going to take my guns, and I’m sure as hell not going to let ‘em take your guns.”
“This is a bunch of crap and people talking about things they don’t know what they’re talking about,” he continues. “The only bill that I have worked on and am working on is one that will keep guns out of the hands of criminals and people mentally deranged. And that’s a fact.”
Like I told Manchin in the letter I faxed to him yesterday morning, he’s working with Chuck Schumer on strengthening background checks and Schumer is looking to push for gun registration. Working with Schumer doesn’t make Manchin look good at all. I voted for Manchin because he introduced a Federal Concealed Weapon bill in the Senate, he is the first Democrat whom I’ve voted for since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
Actions speak louder than YouTube videos, Senator.
