Skip to comments.Hundreds Protest Manchin Gun Control Support in West Virginia
Posted on 12/24/2012 5:58:27 AM PST by marktwain
We highlighted West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe NRA A-Rated Manchins post-Newtown come-to-Jesus epiphany on the need for common sense gun control laws earlier this week. But not long after basking in the approval of media outlets everywhere for his level-headedness on the issue, he tried to walk the whole thing back. As he backpeddled furiously, mediaite.com reports that he was heard shouting, Im not supporting a ban on anything, Manchin said. He instead reinforced his praise of the gun lobby group, saying, Im so proud of the NRA, Im so pleased they agreed to be part of this. But Mountain Staters werent having any of it and gathered yesterday to let Tailgunner Joe know how much hes appreciated back home. Reader Bill Bargo was on hand and estimated the crowd outside Manchins Charleston office numbered about 200. Bill took a few snaps along with some video (after the jump), including a brief speech by WVCDL president Keith Morgan. He even managed to locate and document the lone Manchin supporter who was on hand, too . . .

The NRA ia purportedly putting on 8K new members a day. If the congresscritters were getting calls from 8,000 constituents a day telling them that a vote for any sort of ‘gun control’ (confiscation, weapons bans, smaller clips, ammunition restrictions, and anything else the Left can think up, etc.) is a vote to go home ..... ‘gun control’ will quickly wither on the vine.
I hope the dumb asses who voted for that jerk realize that a liberal is a liberal - even if he does campaign with a gun in his hand.
I though manchin guns were already essentially outlawed.
I thought manchin guns were already essentially outlawed.
Here's his answer. And it's far mor than the NRA - it is the steel-eyed determination of gun owners to protect the right to self-defense.
Ha ha ha
Go to the link, folks. The pictures and comments after the article are worth the click.
DC population 617,000.. 200 show up to protest the NRA.
Charleston, WV 51,000.. 200 show up to protest a traitor to the NRA.
it is not the mental challenged politicians anymore. It is is the UNELECTED MSM media which is acting as the enemy. Too may NYC reporters.
Patriots are rising up!
Patriots are rising up!
That's what they do.
From the comments...
The Second Amendment was not included in the
Constitution to protect hunters or target shooters.
The founders wanted to guarantee
that America would always have a WELL ARMED CITIZENRY.
If you want to argue that it is talking about the militia,
who was the militia?
Tenche Cox, Pennsylvanian delegate to the
Continental Congress tells us:
The militia of these free commonwealths,
entitled and accustomed to their arms,
when compared with any possible army,
must be tremendous and irresistible.
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves?
Is it feared, then, that we shall turn
our arms each man against his own bosom.
Congress have no power to disarm
the militia. Their swords,
and every other terrible implement of the soldier,
are the birth-right of an American
the unlimited power of the sword is not in
the hands of either the federal or state governments,
but, where I trust in God
it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.
Too bad they didn't on Election Day.
The MSM must die so that the Republic may live. Long live the new media!
Notice that the NRA protest made national news. The protest against Manchin’s treachery ... crickets.
that’s some nice looking MK VII ball ammo, it’s a shame it’s in such short supply these days.
Looks like some of the good India stuff if you can get it from the 70s or earlier it is great ammo! I love the 303 in got some head stamped 1933 still goes bang every time....
Yet they keep putting the worst people in the Senate.
It's criminal that senators have 6 year terms. The peoples' say-so to their own senators is severely limited when terms are that long.
I don't know when Foo Manchu is up again, sad to say I think his 6 years are ahead of him.
If anyone out there has some good ideas on strategy and tactics I'd like to hear them.

You are already doing part of it. Use the new media (such as freerepubic), tout the new media, point out the lies in the old media, do your own facebook, twitter, and blog(if you can), learn if you can’t.
One of the best things you can do is go on MSM news articles and contradict them with facts and figures and logic in the comments. If I see a site that does not allow comments, I am pretty sure it is propaganda.
Yes, it takes trouble and some effort to sign up to some sites. I find that many will accept facebook as a way to sign in.
If you do not want to be bothered with ads and spam, create another email account for this purpose.
Someone once said: “The worst mistake a man can make is to know that he can only do little, and therefore does nothing.” In the media, everything is additive. Your comments and posts count.
