Senator Joe Manchin was on FOX News today to discuss his proposed gun control legislation.
Joe Manchin admitted his bill will not prevent another Newtown massacre,
“This is not a universal background check. This is a criminal and mental background check at gun shows and internet sales. It does not infringe on your right as a family… It protects the rights of our veterans… They (families of Newtown shooting victims) even recognized that this legislation we’re working on, which is the background checks on criminal and mental illness would not have saved their little babies.”
