Manchin and his cohorts are attempting to write a law to correct a problem that doesn't exist. A simple language law that requires a one time background check when purchasing a gun from a commercially licensed dealer would solve the problem, but even that isn't needed. A commercial license would be required of anyone who sold five or more weapons in a 12 month period.

The REAL PEOPLE of America think this is a CROCK of SHAT!

Only 4% are concerned, according to a Gallup Poll, this 90% faux poll is pure made up fiction.

The PENALTY for MURDER with a gun is the same or worse than murder with a knife or a club or anything else, DEATH.

If DEATH PENALTY doesn't stop Madman, what will?? That is WHY they are called CRAZY, duh!

How does a background check infringe on anyone's rights Other than identifying someone that should not have a gun? Clearly duwhop and his obsession with this, and the online comment section of the NR, could been seen as mental issues? Figures he is against background checks.

So wonderFreud, your professional psychiatric diagnosis of “duwhop” is that he has mental issues that would disqualify him from purchasing a gun? Based on his posts to an online comment section with which you disagree?

THAT’S why you “enlightened” progressives definitely should NOT be allowed to establish “background” checks. Anyone who disagrees with your loony left agenda would be diagnosed by the lobotomized likes of wonderFreud, Mad Maddie, and Goosestepper to have “mental issues.”

America embraces the culture of death and we chalk it up to the cost of freedom. Almost 1 million Americans have died since 1980 from gun violence, this is the price of freedom. Almost a million fetused die every year,again the price of freedom. Throw in the deaths of alcohol/drugs, drunk driving, we are ok with all of this. We point fingers at each other and claim the high ground for whatever "side" your on but down deep it's all OK. Death is the price of freedom and Americans embrace it. This is not a Christian nation. A Christian nation would not embrace death as a cost of freedom...

wvhoopie “Almost a million fetused die every year... we are ok with all of this.”

Who’s “we” hoopie? Anxiously awaiting your denunciation of the Democrit Party of Death responsible for protecting the “right” to kill a million babies every year.

In America 1,800 of 10,000 babies in the womb were aborted last year. Only 1 in 10,000 Americans were killed by a firearm last year. You tell me which one is the bigger problem?

But let’s keep 100% of our attention on "gun control," and casually support a million dead babies every year as a “right to choose.”

no mention of if you commit any crime with a gun you go to prison for life.that won't stop everybody but it will deter some.try it and see.if you commit a crime with a gun it means that you are willing to kill to get what you want.

Your elected officials really don't give a sh t about what the people want, they are there to get re-elected to office. As far as the people want they could give a RATS As. Keep electing these Morons.

Serial Liar Whoopee, about 11,000 deaths a year is about 330,000 in 30 years, not 1 million stop the lying horseshat.

But 1.8 MILLION per YEAR VIOLENT CRIMES are PREVENTED by Guns.

In 30 years that number is 54 MILLION Violent Crimes PREVENTED by guns.

Mine is bigger.

GUN NUTS crack me up!!! GUN owners are far more likely to shoot and kill themselves or a family member than they are to shoot a criminal.That's just a little CHLORINE IN THE GENE POOL!!!

THAT'S THE FACT JACK!!!!

You worry about your own gene pool, and I’ll worry about mine, Clueless. With 18 out of 100 babies murdered before they’re born, I’d say your gene pool is in greater danger of extinction. Smith and Wesson, Colt, and Ruger are protecting my gene pool. Planned Parenthood is decimating yours.

Manchin is really something. I have often seen that he is in love with his own image and loves to see himself on TV. He loves to perform on cue. When New Town happened he could not help himself, he had to get into the frenzy and the best way to make a big splash was to completey reverse his stated positions and become the darling of the national media, which is left wing. You could see in his initial interviews on CNN and MSNBC that he was excited by the attention. And then he ends up co-sponsoring a bill that he likely did not know what it was. Many DO support the idea of background checks at gun shows, but NOT having a father who wants to give his shotgun to his son, having to go the police to have his son checked out by the Gov. Joe likes to say that is not part of the bill but it is. So, in his*****to be a star he let the the moderate view (pro gun show checks equal to FFL rules)be crushed with his support of the radical version of checks that failed to pass in both parties.

What a foolish waste of time. Once again the nations priorities are misguided.

Politicans had better get serious about more important matters happening in our nation like $17 trillion of debt (& climbing), illegals crossing the border (& later voting for democrats), the 4 Americans murdered in Libya, national security, and getting government out of the way so private entrprise can get back on track.

The liberal social agenda is about as important as a turd on a log.

Manchin & the others, need to be held accountable for poor judgement regarding national priorities.

Playing to people's emotions is a foolish way to govern and lead a nation.

This legislation getting shot down shows a general distrust in the current administration. If you think for one second that a background check system for someone purchasing a firearm would solely be used for that purpose, you are as stupid as you are naive. And this crap about not having a registry? Try buying a gun and ask the dealer to not give the guns serial number to the ATF when they run their check. See how many guns you can buy that way. Registration leads to confiscation. End of story.

Liketoknow nailed it, I don't give a shat about a background check because I CAN PASS.

The problem is it creates a DATABASE of gun serial nr to gun OWNER so in two years when the libs push gun SEIZSURE, they already have the list of purchase and owner addresses.

THAT is the problem.

Cluela%%, about 9800 used a gun today to prevent a violent crime against themselves today.

Far outweighs a few drug dealers who shot each OTHER!

Most of the crime in the inner cities is Thugs shooting THUGS or the innocent.

Thug on Thug crime saves the taxpayer money.
