WV Sen. Joe Manchin Weighs in on Gun Control
In the wake of the shooting at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary, US Sen. Joe Manchin says it's time for an honest look at gun policy. Manchin is an avid hunter and lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, and says it's time for all sides in the gun policy debate to talk honestly and openly about reasonable restrictions on guns. The massacre that killed twenty first grade students and six adults has some Democrats calling for a ban on military-style assault weapons and a look at how the nation deals with individuals suffering from serious mental illness. Manchin said. "Anybody that's a proud gun owner, a proud member of the NRA, they're also proud parents, they're proud grandparents. They understand this has changed where we go from here."
