Anti-gun hypocrite

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- When former Gov. and current Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) changed positions on the assault weapons ban post-Connecticut school shooting, he justified the change by saying, “I don’t know anyone that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting.”

He also said that he doesn’t know “anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle.”

Shortly after these statements, pictures of then-Gov. Manchin shooting an AR-15 with a 15 to 20 round clip, red dot sight, flash light, and a collapsible stock were sent to Breitbart News.

They’re good pictures. The problem is, they’re pictures of hypocrite — pictures of yet another politician who’s rule appears to be “do as I say, not as I do.”

(btw, that's probably a 30 round magazine, not 15 or 20)

Yes, that is a 30 round mag, I can recognize that shape/size anywhere.

Besides pointing out the utter hypocrisy of the Senator...

In the author's example of 3 intruders armed with guns that hold 7-10 rounds apiece, he makes a very good point about the 30 rounds with regard to defense in a home invasion situation.

...as well as the good point that the 2nd amendment wasn't about hunting anyway, but rather "to shield our right to have and use firearms so we could defend our lives and our property, and so we could repel a tyranny."
