Manchin: Gun Control Bill Wouldn’t Have Stopped Newtown

Appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation on April 14, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said Newtown families have told him they know the bill he and Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) have crafted would not have prevented the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary.

In other words, Manchin’s expanded background check “compromise” bill, being pushed in response to Newtown, does not do anything that would have stopped the Newtown tragedy from happening.

Manchin said the families to whom he’s spoken just keep urging him to do something in hopes that somewhere down the road new gun control legislation will “prevent one family from…going through what [Newtown] families went through.”

    Expanded background check. Code word for Gun Registration which begins today in New York. These two traitors go on all the liberal networks trying to spin the truth. Too bad its not working. As for Toomey, I emailed him twice giving him my thoughts and telling him to switch parties. I also told him he lost my vote and the vote of thousands of Pennsylvanians clinging to their guns and bibles.

    Of course not, unless this United Sanity of America becomes like North Korea it would not be free of gun-related killings. Over there I can see they have 0 gun-related crimes, but I’m sure they don’t have any gun-control law as they all are ‘law-abiding’ people, being brain-washed in and out, and thus don’t need such stupid laws 😉

    Lets just open a can of corn. Thats doing something. But unlike this bill when we see it will do nothing to prevent violent gun crimes at least we can eat the corn.

    The leftist Lib’s don’t care about anything else other than their own AGENDA…..Does that sound like someone in current office…Commander and Chief……O’bama?

    Why would anyone with even half a heart, (besides Barney Frank), use children and poor families that have gone through such a travesty and tragedy, because some idiot(s) have Terrorism on their minds or in the case of Sandy Hook, CT……without their minds (Adam Lanza), to try and change laws with a political agenda to take away America’s God given Constitutional and Second Amendment rights?

    If you want to know what I buy and own, just ask me. Don’t try and track me and everything that I do. That is not America and definitely not Freedom. That is the Communistic Socialist Liberal Leftist agenda. Adolph Hitler and his cronies were reporting on their own neighbors, for the sake of bread and/or favors.

    We love and respect America for our Freedom and our Sacred Rights and won’t let it become some Liberal agenda (ahhhmmmmm……O’bama, Feinstein, Bloomberg, Reid, etc….). Granted, there are companies that need to sell their wares to American citizens, but they also give jobs to people that have families and loved ones that need a paycheck coming in on a weekly basis. But isn’t this what America is? Freedom to live within a society that treats each other with self respect, without trying to take away each others Freedoms without forsaking what this country was built upon.

    May God Bless America and the families, friends and loved ones, that were impacted by such a terrorism and cowardly act in Boston. May we never forget these days when our hearts hang so low, but that we strive to continue to treat and care for each other with due respect as we move forward as a Family of caring and respecting Americans.

    Please let me know if you feel the same way. Thank you and may God bless.
