Joe Scarborough, other pro-gun supporter rethink stance after Newtown12/17/2012
With pressure mounting for gun regulation in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, two well-known members of the pro-gun lobby have called for a rethink. Joe Manchin, the Democratic senator for West Virginia and a National Rifle Association member, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program today that the tragedy had "changed the dialogue, and it should move beyond dialogue. We need action." Earlier in the program, host Joe Scarborough, a former GOP House member who "received the NRA's highest ratings" over four terms in Congress, delivered a long monologue stating that Friday's events meant "that the ideologies of my past career were no longer relevant to the future that I want, that I demand for my children. Friday changed everything." [Source]
