Mike Bloomberg is rushing to the rescue of the single Senator who seems as obsessed as Bloomberg with revisiting the votes cast in the U.S. Senate on April 17 – Joe Manchin.
Farther on in the article we find this little gem.
Manchin’s answers and signature on the NRA’s detailed candidate questionnaire.
Manchin’s verbatim response on the questionnaire was “I support current laws and oppose further regulation. Gun sales by private citizens who are not engaged in an ongoing firearms business should not be subject to federal background check requirements, whether the sales take place at a gun show or elsewhere.” Yet the Manchin-Toomey amendment would have mandated such checks not only at gun shows, but for all private firearm transactions that have been publicized in any fashion, even a simple “for sale” notice at the local gun club.
More proof that these gun haters will say and do anything as long as they can get re-elected. I don't know if they have recall in their state laws or not. If they do, the people should start a recall effort against this asshat.
Write your Senators and keep up the pressure.
