Joe Manchin vs. the NRA

By Jillian Rayfield, Salon

20 June 13

 

The Democrat is fighting back against the NRA's charge that he's part of the ÔÇťObama-Bloomberg gun control agenda."

en. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., put out an ad firing back at the NRA, which has been attacking his record on gun rights since Manchin co-sponsored a gun background check measure in the Senate.

"West Virginia, you know me," Manchin says in the ad, which debuted on MSNBC. "I haven't changed, and you know I've always fought for our gun rights." He continues: "I believe that we can protect the Second Amendment and make our communities safer. I think most law-abiding gun owners agree with me."

The NRA is spending $100,000 to target Manchin, including releasing an ad that ties him to the "Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda." In response, Manchin said that "Unfortunately, the NRA leadership in Washington has lost its way and is more concerned about political power than gun rights and gun safety."
