No matter how much rifle target shooting Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) showed the public on TV commercials while running against his Republican opponent for the senate before the election in West Virginia, he’s now showing his true colors. Manchin was on MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough show recently saying he was for background checks on anyone buying a gun. Manchin has been fooling Americans making them think he is a conservative Democrat. He certainly fooled me and the NRA up until now.

My brother, (a former U.S. marine, who lives in Texas) said “as we here in Texas see it, the government will know who has weapons and who doesn’t” referring to the background checks. Just think about it. Every attack on freedom came from tyrants like Hitler, Stalin, Lenin and Santa Ana (the list goes on) who wanted a strong central government ruled by elites.

Background checks will simply notify the government where the firearms are located when they come to take them. Keep in mind the British were on their way to Lexington and Concord to seize the colonists guns and ammo in 1775. Here we go again. By the way Joe, the last time we checked, the second amendment wasn’t about hunting.

You got back into office by your crafty disguise as a conservative with your rifle firing advertising. Deep down you must be a die hard liberal, speaking with a fork tongue. Say it ain’t so, Joe!
