Gun Owners of America Exposed Manchin’s Gun Control Plans: Bill was not aiming at Closing Loopholes


Did you watch PBS’ new special “Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA”? According to Breitbart, the special includes a look at other gun rights groups, including the Gun Owners of America and credits the group for exposing Senator Joe Manchin‘s attempt to cloak his 2013 gun control push by padding it with words like “compromise” and “loopholes.”

The group’s Executive Director Larry Pratt saw the West Virginia Democrat working behind the scenes, pushing gun control after Sandy Hook. He called him out and asked other gun rights groups, including the NRA, to do the same.

“Pratt saw Manchin as an opportunist who was stepping in while the hearts of the American people were aching, offering them salve that wouldn’t heal, but which would take away even more of their liberty,” wrote Breitbart.

The groups did join forces and defeated Manchin’s proposed bill.

“The Manchin bill was not aiming at loopholes, it was aimed at nailing down some remaining freedom the American people have. Gun control simply kills people. And for Senator Manchin to wave the bloody shirts of those children from Newtown is despicable,” said Pratt.
