Sen. Joe Manchin: Expanded background gun checks can pass Senate
Please personally call and write your Reps again. It's Round 2, an exact redo of Round 1. They won't rest until they win on universal background checks. We must stop this nonsense...again. I made bold the most ridiculous thing he said.

Sen. Joe Manchin said Tuesday that the Senate could agree on a plan to expand background checks on commercial gun sales.

“I truly believe the background check bill is possible to get passed,” Mr. Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, said during an appearance on CBS This Morning.

Mr. Manchin and Sen. Patrick Toomey, Pennsylvania Republican, pushed a proposal last month — dubbed the Toomey-Manchin amendment — that called for expanding background checks for gun purchasers and carved out exceptions for inter-family transfers.

The plan failed to muster enough support to pass the Senate, and now Mr. Manchin is planning to try again.

“We are going to have to make some adjustments to it and find out where the comfort zone is, but what we need to do really is educate the law-abiding gun owners like myself, people that might belong to the NRA or other gun organizations that don’t believe this is a threat to their Second Amendment,” Mr. Manchin said. “This bill, not only protects your Second Amendment, it expands your Second Amendment.”
Live Free or Die
Well, I guess now we get to see if Toomey learned from last time and was serious when he said that the Senate had its chance at this.

Time to make the calls again.

Shall we plan another phone-athon?
Working on letters right now.

You think this morons would learn.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
