Although I am disappointed in the outcome of the vote, this is not the end of the debate. Because Majority Leader Harry Reid changed his vote for procedural reasons, the final vote count was 54-46. His vote change allows the amendment to be reconsidered in the future. Moving forward, I am hopeful that my colleagues and I can work together as we remember all the families who have suffered from senseless acts of violence across America. If we muster just one ounce of the courage these families have shown, then we, as a legislative body, can truly make a difference.

Next Steps for the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act  

This Wednesday, the Senate voted down the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act that I introduced with Republican Senator Pat Toomey to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill while protecting our Second Amendment rights.

Although I am disappointed in the outcome of the vote, this is not the end of the debate. Because Majority Leader Harry Reid changed his vote for procedural reasons, the final vote count was 54-46. His vote change allows the amendment to be reconsidered in the future.

Moving forward, I am hopeful that my colleagues and I can work together as we remember all the families who have suffered from senseless acts of violence across America. If we muster just one ounce of the courage these families have shown, then we, as a legislative body, can truly make a difference.

I thank Senator Pat Toomey, along with Senators Mark Kirk and Chuck Schumer, for their support on working toward a balanced approach to fix our culture of mass violence.

Fixing Our Culture of Mass Gun Violence

This bill is still alive and I will continue to talk with my colleagues to explain this bill to them and urge their support. Again, I encourage all West Virginians, gun owners, NRA members and Americans who are interested in fixing our culture of mass violence to read the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act.

Manchin's Message from the Hill to the Mountains

Facts are Stubborn - So Am I

On the Senate floor last week, I quoted John Adams' famous remark that "facts are stubborn things." It was my way of warning the groups who were spreading misinformation about my background check legislation that facts, not lies, ultimately prevail. 

Unfortunately, my commonsense bill had a setback this week. The legislation got bipartisan support from  a majority of Senators, but it fell short of the 60 votes it needed to pass in the Senate. The vote left a lot of people who supported our bill disappointed. 

I'm  disappointed but I'm  also determined - because everybody who knows me knows that, like the facts John Adams spoke about, I'm  pretty doggone stubborn myself when the facts - and the truth - are on my side.
