Even though President Donald Trump has repeatedly said that he is pro-Second Amendment, congressional Democrats are still trying to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda of disarming the American people. Some Democrats, such as Sen. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, are trying to persuade Trump to support gun control efforts such as universal background checks.

West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin on Friday said that President Trump can “apply gun sense” should a renewed effort surface towards universal background checks for gun sales.

Speaking to CNN about the prospect of expanding checks, Manchin said, “Donald Trump’s the only person that can do that right now” and that “I truly believe he can make a difference.”

The co-author with Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of a measure to expand background checks to private gun transfers that was defeated in 2013, Manchin has since revisited the concept over the past several months only to lament the support isn’t there on Capitol Hill to push it through. Manchin previously told the New York Times that he spoke with Trump in December 2016, saying the President shared there was a “complete opportunity” for new gun control legislation.

Democrats will not stop trying to destroy the Second Amendment rights of the American people until they have made all guns illegal to own. Their goal is to disarm and conquer the American people to make it easier to establish their socialist government where everyone but the elite will be suppressed.
