Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has found what he believes is destroying America. Due process. Being presumed innocent until proven guilty. Can you imagine what a demonic dictator Obama could do if he could arrest anyone he wanted at will. I’d even bet he would have Ronald Reagan exhumed and tried for being a conservative. He could have passed laws making Christianity illegal since he could arrest without bail any member of congress who objected.
Manchin was on the Morning Joe Show and he was lamenting the fact that he couldn’t get his massive gun confiscation passed because he would first have to prove that law abiding citizens with guns were a threat, which he knows is impossible. Now, we all know that democrats piss on the constitution, but it is refreshing to see one that’s at least honest about it. I am just wondering how Manchin was able to get elected so easily in a pro gun state like West Virginia. Oh, right. He ran as a pro gun candidate. Maybe he’s not so honest after all.
Here is what the moron said:
The problem that we have, and really the firewall that we have right now, is due process. It’s all due process. So we can all say we want the same thing, but how do we get there? … The shooter in Orlando was brought in twice by the FBI. They did everything they could … but there was no way for them to keep him on the NICS list or keep him off the gun buy list. So can’t we say if a person’s under suspicion there should be a five-year period that we have to see good behavior [before they can buy a gun]? Maybe we can come to that kind of agreement. But due process is what’s killing us right now.
Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele asked Manchin what he would do about someone who already owns guns and comes under suspicion but has not been convicted. Manchin spoke like a true liberal. He said the law should have a mechanism for gun confiscation.
