GOA Sends: Senator Manchin Steps up Campaign of Lies

Recommended Posts

Don’t let your Senator fall for his
"superficial" changes!

Recently, we alerted you to the intense pressure that pro-gun Senators are
experiencing right now. You guys unleashed a torrent of grassroots activism in
response, and we are starting to get great feedback as to where Senators
currently stand.

Within the past 48 hours, we have seen clear evidence that West Virginia
Senator Joe Manchin and his staff have openly lied about the status of talks
with two Republican Senators.

Manchin is claiming that two Senators who originally opposed his
background-registration check amendment would flip their votes if "superficial
changes" were made to the text.

But at the request of Gun Owners of America, a prominent constituent spoke
with his U.S. Senator in regard to the allegations that Manchin was making about
that particular Senator. The constituent reported that his Senator called
Manchin's representations a "lie."

In a separate case, Manchin claimed to have been in talks with a particular
Senate office; but three staffers who would have been part of those talks denied
the truth of Manchin's public representations.

Since Manchin had earlier lied about the status of talks with Oklahoma
Senator Tom Coburn, a standard operating procedure is becoming clear: Manchin is
obsessively lying in order to create a false sense of momentum.

Manchin is not the only Bloomberg puppet in the Senate. On Tuesday,
California Senator Barbara Boxer filibustered an amendment that would extend
firearm owners' protection in national parks to Army Corps of Engineer

But, in a Senate where a senator's word has traditionally been regarded as
sacred, the first-full-term West Virginia senator has shown a tremendous
willingness to engage in open fraud in order to destroy the Second

Manchin is now circulating a list of bribes he is trying to use to buy off
Republican votes which GOA predicted would happen. Some of these bribes, like an
amendment which would supposedly ameliorate the nasty implications of his
amendment for rural states like Alaska, are merely superficial and

Others, like opening the NICS list to local police, are just massive
violations of individual rights allowing many names to be inserted into the NICS
system without due process.

ACTION: Click here to contact your U.S. Senators. Warn them that, in violation of the Senate's
most sacred traditions, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is engaging in fraud,
lies, and bribes in order to advance gun control.
