Manchin Unveils Ads

He was on The Morning Joe on MSNBC this morning. You can follow and see the videos. He asks for West Virginians to call the NRA and tell them to support background checks. I’m sure the phones are going to be ringing off the hooks in Fairfax over this one.

On Monday, Manchin unveiled plans to match the NRA by pulling from his re-election war chest to bankroll a counter-attack ad buy—an unusual move for a just-reelected senator.

Good. Make him spend money. We’re going to have running fights over the next six years as we try to punish all the people involved with this latest gun control push. We have to have long memories and be committed to a lengthy fight.

  1. America’s First Freedom will be publishing an article by me about existing state mandatory background checks and murder rates soon.

    I’m an NRA member (not in WV, of course), and I support background checks.

    The NICS check we already have. I totally support that.

      I would even go so far as supporting actually expanding background checks. However, calling it “expanding” while it does no such thing, but instead creates new crimes when transferring to even non-prohibited people- that I vehemently oppose.

      And by “support”, I mean the tepid kind of support that most liberals give to gun control. I’d be fine without it.

      The trouble is, gun owners have somehow been enchanted or something, so that all a pol needs is an R behind their name, and to utter the words “enforce existing laws,” and they’ll follow him like the kiddies of Hamlin followed the Pied Piper. They will develop collective amnesia, somewhat enhanced by LOTES. (Lesser of Two Evils Syndrome)

      Yeah, I’m a cynic, but just you watch.

    Where did Manchen get enough money to outspend the evil deep pocketed bully of the NRA ?
