Joe Manchin (D-WVa.) Says He's 'Frustrated' With NRA

The man clearly has a gift for understatement.

The man clearly has a gift for understatement.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who has an ‘A’ rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA), said he’s "frustrated" with the group, accusing them of a misinformation campaign in regard to the bipartisan background checks bill he authored with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.).

The West Virginia Democrat said the group was trying to scare gun owners and said the slippery slope argument the gun lobby pushed was disingenuous.

“I’m frustrated with any organization that basically is saying things – and what they’re doing is they’re rattling the cage, if you will, saying, well if [Congress does] this they’re going to do this. It’s a first step,” Manchin said on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday.

Frustrated?

In addition to flat-out lying about Manchin's bill, the new president of the NRA likes to refer to the Civil War as the "War of Northern Aggression," has referred to President Obama as a "fake president," and openly contemplates armed rebellion against the US government.

Hey Joe: the time to be "frustrated" with this nutbar organization is long over. The only reasonable thing to do at this point is resign.

Your move, Senator.
