    West Virginians plan to rally in front of the Charleston, W.V. offices of Sen. Joseph Manchin III (D-W.Va.) Dec. 22 in protest of his abandonment of the pro-gun rights positions he campaigned on in 2010 and 2012.

    “We are expecting 300 to 1,000 people to attend — it will be bigger than any of the events we held during the campaign,” said Keith T. Morgan, the president of the Charleston-based West Virginia Citizens Defense League.

      I used to post as one of three liberals in a sea of crazies.  In time I decided that my mental health was more important and quit.

      The comments are not at all surprising, i.e...

      ...and remind him what the Second Amendment is all about. It is NOT about hunting. It is NOT about target shooting. It is NOT about "sport shooting".

      The founders wanted to insure we ALWAYS had a well armed population, because they just fought a war against a tyrant, King George. They needed every able bodied armed citizen they could muster. They also knew from history that there is no guarantee we could keep our Republic. When asked what form of government they had decided on, Benjamin Franklin replied, "A Republic, if you can keep it."

      An armed, no WELL armed population, is the heritage that ensures America will always have the means to resist and overthrow any dictator.

      Our founders were wise enough to realize that our Republic had NO GUARANTEE of success.

      America has the best armed population in the world. God willing we'll stay that way.

      When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin
