Sen. Joe Manchin: “But due process is what’s killing us right now.”

I have said over and over and many other have said it too: When they do not respect the Second Amendment, you can rest assured they do not hold the rest of the Bill of Rights in great regard either.  Gun Control champion Senator Joe Manchin gave us a startling confession on TV today.


The problem we have—and really, the firewall we have right now, is due process. It’s all due process. So we can all say, ‘yeah, we want the same thing,’ but how do we get there. If a person is on a terrorist watch list like the gentleman—the shooter—in Orlando, he was, twice by the FBI, we were briefed yesterday about what happened. But that man was brought in twice. They did everything they could. The FBI did everything they were supposed to do. But there was no way for them to keep him on the nix list or keep him off the gun buy list. There was no way to do that. So can’t we say that if a person is under suspicion, there should be a five year period of time that we have to see if good behavior, if this person continues the same traits? Maybe we can come to that type of an agreement. But due process is what’s killing us right now.”

That pesky 5th Amendment is in the way. To paraphrase and old historical quote:

Who will rid me of this meddlesome Constitution?


Dear West Virginians, Joe Manchin needs to go. He needs to be recalled or voted out, bit nobody who publicly confesses his annoyance with the Bill of rights cannot represent any state of the Union.

  1. They take an oath to protect and defend the constitution and they don’t even know what’s in it. Just another example of abysmal ignorance rife in this country.

  2. That’s the face of a man who would tear down every law in the nation to get at the Devil.

  3. I saw this quote from him written somewhere on the internet, and I thought it was satire. Wow. This is what we’ve come to, then?

    • That is why I went looking for the video. I was not trusting just any written quote.
      My soul feels crushed that that entity is representing a state in DC.

  4. Make note of all the names of the people outing themselves as the enemies of our country and its founding documents. They’re not hiding their idiotic, irrational, illogical, stupidity, any longer.

  5. They know what is in the Constitution, they don’t care what it says. They know if they can put common sense controls on the 2nd then they can do it to all the bill of rights. Just some common sense restrictions on religion don’t want preachers talking about sin it might bother someone, same goes for freedom of speech. If you disagree with them your speech is hate speech. Welcome to the new national socialism.
