Sen. Joe Manchin: “It’s changed. It’s changed America”

Ask Ron Barber to lead on sensible gun policies.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was on Morning Joe today. He's an NRA member with an A rating from the group. But he's taking another look.

"I think opening up and seeing the massacre of so many innocent children, it's changed. It's changed America. . . . I'm a proud outdoorsman, a hunter and like shooting and all that, like so many Americans, but this doesn't make sense."

From earlier in the interview:

"I don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle," Manchin said during an appearance on "Morning Joe." "I don't know anyone that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about."
