Senate swing vote Manchin says he won’t support radical leftist gun grab

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) confessed on Tuesday he will not support the additional gun control legislation passed by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives despite the enormous political pressure to do so from his own party. 

MSCNBC reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell reported on Tuesday during MTP Daily in a discussion with Kasie Hunt about the senator’s stand against the new bill. The report follows the heated debate of gun rights after mass shootings in the past week in Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado.
H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 passed the House on Mar. 11. The bills have not yet appeared before the Senate.
“Senator Manchin just told reporters in the past 30 minutes that he doesn’t support the House bills,” Caldwell added. “Democratic leader Schumer has said he plans, regardless of where Republicans stand, regardless of where Senator Manchin stands…. It’s an exercise in getting people on the record.”
Manchin has supported past efforts with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) to pass background check legislation. However, Manchin has refused to support the additional restrictions put forth in the House’s most recent bills.
H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 would mandate universal background checks on all gun purchases. These proposed measures would also extend the time of a background check.
The bills must receive at least 60 votes in the Senate to pass. In the current 50-50 Senate deadlock, the legislation would require at least 10 Republican votes to pass, 11 excluding Manchin.
Without a change in the current Senate filibuster requirements, the gun control measures are highly unlikely to pass.
President Joe Biden has also challenged Congress to pass additional legislation to ban high-capacity magazines and certain assault rifles. Some Democrats are now pushing for a presidential executive order on gun control to bypass the challenges faced in the Senate.

Does anyone care that those crazy imbeciles are shredding our Constitution, and the Bill of Rights? Killing our people and jobs!! It’s some new stunt every day, just to flaunt their power. The people do NOT matter at all to those baboons!!!

Republicans are the only ones that believe in the Constitution. Unfortunately that cost us in the last election. Everyone thought the courts would rule in favor of forensic audits but they had no intention of defending the Constitution. That is why I am so upset with Mike Pence saying he didn’t have the Constitutional right to select the electors. He had every right to send those double electors back to the swing states to make a decision. Even if he didn’t have the rights, it would require the Dems to try the court systems. I lost all respect for Pence because he didn’t have the nerve to fight for us conservatives. No one believes more in the Constitution than Trump and he wouldn’t ask Pence to do anything against the Constitution. We can all thank Pence for being weak.

Good for Senator Manchin. It’s good to know not all Democrats, are so power hungry they are destroying the USA simply to gain control of the people, permanently. Someone needs to stand up and look into Biden’s insane executive orders. Had they been written by a Conservative every single one of them would have been challenged.

You have to watch Manchin, he quite often says one thing and does the other.

It would be good if we could trust Manchin at his word. But like so many of those rotten politicians (both sides) their word means nothing since they flip-flop so much!!

I agree! Thanks to Senator Manchin. He may be the only Senator who is wiling to take flack for trying to defend our Constitution.

The problem is that the Republicans are weak and spineless, Trump was the only one to stand up for the people and look what they have done to him. They will regret the day they did not stand up for voter fraud. A blind man could see it was stolen.

Not all Republicans are spineless and weak but the party does have too many RINO’s in their midst. Ten plus Romney showed their true commitments to the party along with Murkowski & Collins. The RNC needs to rid the party of these non-team players. These senators can have their personal opinions and express them but they need to vote as their constituents who put them in office want them to and as the party needs them. It is unfortunate for the dissenting Senators but they forget in their self importance and arrogance that their obligation is to the voters and to the party, not their own personal preferences.

I do not trust Manchin. He has said he would not support Bills previously and then voted for them anyway.

Manchin must be up for re-election. A prime example of a Rino. Talks out of both sides of his mouth. I don’t trust him any farther then I could throw him.

In the meantime while we wait for true leadership.. Lord protect us from the Biden-Harris Circus, guide them so that their clown Pelosi and her monkey on a string Schumer don’t interfere with what is truly important to the true American people of this country. Open the democrats eyes who voted for this circus see what is truly going on and turn to those who really have their best interest at heart. Give to the real Republicans a backbone of steel and lead them as to what is right. Bless President Trump as he faces and fights the evil that is Sweeping this country like a cancer. Give the true Republicans a blade to use on your behalf to cut out the cancer as needed. In Jesus’s Name …Amen!

What the idiots pushing for OL’ SLEEPY, CREEPY, THIEVING, LYIN’ BIDEN to do about the gun control they want. I believe is totally unconstitutional, he can’t simply sign an executive order and make like a Dictator that he is and say I’m making it law no private citizens will own any type of firearm. He would have so many lawsuits from the state’s that believe in the 2nd amendment, as well as the private citizens filing lawsuits against him he’d be tied up in court for the entire time he is in the White House. I think it’s rather funny he stated that you can’t rule by executive order unless you’re a dictator.. Strange he has signed over 50 count ’em that’s OVER FIFTY, executive orders more than any other President in the history of our country. So that being said I guess he really is a Dictator.

Yeah, Obama said the SAME THING about not being able to rule by executive order because he wasn’t a dictator–right before he signed ANOTHER illegal/unconstitutional executive order!

Thankfully there is at least ONE (1) Demoncrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) who knows Right From Wrong !!!!! All this to do over Gun Rights is Just playing into the Hands of Criminals and Terrorists, who could care less about Gun Laws and have ready access to all the guns they need, want and use against We The People !!!! Our Second Amendment Must Be Protected !!

I don’t know if Joe Manchion can withstand the persuasive / attacks from the democrats to cave in to their pressure!! I am not sure if he is a very strong man or not!!! I have seen him change his mind at the last minute, which makes it appear that he caves to the democrats’ pressure.

No more illegal executive orders from joebama! Executive orders are not laws, they can be overturned. Only congress can make laws, not the so called president! People, we need to stand against this travesty of an illegal president, Vice President! We need to fight back, take back our country!

When Minchin actually votes for the people, country, constitution I will believe him. He never follows thru once he has sounded so good for the American people.. but always follows the Dem/Communist party view. And the Dems in the House is a joke. Pelosi has their proxies…
