    Manchin is the the best buddy the NRA could ever have. He grabs national headlines by claiming to have had a change of heart, then waits a couple of days and backtracks, which won't get nearly as much coverage. His feigned concern with assault weapons is all about positioning himself as a major player so that he can make sure any legislation is watered down according to the wishes of the NRA.
