West Virginia’s Schizophrenic Senator, Joe Manchin

West Virginia –-(Ammoland.com)-Senator Joe Manchin has been generating headlines by opposing an effort by the Obama administration to add individuals who receive Social Security Benefits, and have someone appointed to manage their finances, to the NICS system as prohibited persons.

Presumably under the guise that if a person has someone appointed to manage their finances, that person is too incompetent to own a firearm. It is a similar tactic the VA has been using to deny Second Amendment rights to Veterans.

This comes on the heels of Manchin making a statement in July that we should use the “full weight of the government” to bring about gun control.

Why the schizophrenic behavior Joe?

The Senator understands a political principle. Senior citizens vote. Elderly Americans have the highest voter turnout of any demographic. And Joe Manchin fears the wrath of West Virginia's senior population.

Unfortunately for him, he has miscalculated the rest of West Virginia's voting demographics. West Virginians care deeply about their right to bear arms, across nearly every walk of life. And we are going to remember his betrayal of our heritage and our rights.

Do not be fooled by the Senator's on-again off-again inconsistency in the media. I have sat face to face with him. We have discussed the Second Amendment.

Senator Manchin told me directly that self-defense and defense from tyranny are not functions of the Second Amendment in his view, even when faced with the words of the founders.

The Senator has failed to understand that the firearm-owning world has changed. This is not the 1960s. Firearm ownership is no longer predominately about hunting. It is about defending our lives.

Manchin is not willing to gamble votes with senior citizens, because he knows they will show up at the polls. But the rest of you, he will sacrifice for whatever political favors and financial donations he can gather in Washington.

He thinks you will not remember in 2018. He is banking on your apathy. I suspect you will remember quite clearly. And I suspect you'll show up at the polls both in 2016 and 2018.

    2. Mr manson I am sure we can find plenty of women who will be happy to testify to your sexual abuse while you were in high school and college.see how well you do trying to get elected.also we know how much liberals know our president is not hillary.i would vote the way my people want me to if not I guarantee you will not be senator any more.

    3. whoa! you all are scary…..why do you need guns so much? are you feeling insecure? ever consider that that is an emotional issue, not a ‘real’ threat issue? more guns means more deaths…it’s that simple. that’s why i want more gun control. what about our “freedom” to live without fear of being shot?

    4. Manchin ,has that crazed schizo, look in his eyes like Peter King [R] Long Island and their brother from a different mother Charlie Manson. I got a feeling they are all inbred. How else can you explain it. Or is it the fluoride.

    5. Just a few years ago I thought Joe Manchin was the greatest thing to come out of West Virginia. When he was Gov he did a lot for our state. He is a hunter and fisherman and comes from a great family. I have no idea what happened to him when he went to Washington. The first thing he did was team up with Sen Toomey from Pa with a bill to infringe upon our 2nd. Thank God it failed. They are back at it again trying to put the screws to us again.

      Within the past few months he has threw his support behind Hag-Hillary, and recently said he is leaning in favor of the Iran nuke deal. What a disgrace he has been to our great state. I hope in 18 the people of WV fires his butt.

    6. Manchin and his liberty/freedom hating cohorts in the District of Criminals. Don’t know us. And don’t speak for us. One iota. Bottom line. You try to take my weapons . I will resist violently. And I have nothing earthly to lose. Tyrant how’s that for common sense ?

    7. I wonder if Manchin is going to ‘team up’ with Toomey, that RINO from Pennsylvania, on National Universal Background Checks again?
