Manchin looking out for himself
Your editorial about the gun mess was appalling. You accuse conservatives of caring more for "pistol-packers than for slaughtered first-graders." Really? That argument is intellectually bankrupt. Do you similarly believe that all who favor abortion care more about the abortionists who murder babies like Gosnell, rather than the life of innocent babies?
You go on to say that we should be proud of our two senators. Sen. [Joe] Manchin tried to justify his action by saying that it was just common sense. What else could he say while betraying his constituents? His actions were done solely to position himself for his presidential run.
How about this for common sense? Enforce the laws that we have on the books now. Democrats love laws; they just don't like to enforce them. When Obama or Manchin rail against those who oppose attacks on the Second Amendment, it is pure politics. When average Americans do the same, it is naivety and ignorance, an ignorance fed by the mainstream media.
West Virginians should realize that our Sen. Manchin is only looking out for himself in Washington.
