Though Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., says he is open to a conversation on gun control, today he clarified that so far “I’m not supporting a ban on anything.”

Manchin, who has an A-rating from the NRA and who on Monday said that “we need to sit down and have a common sense discussion” about gun control,  said in an interview on West Virginia MetroNews:

“I’m not supporting a ban on anything.  I’m supporting a conversation on everything,” Senator Manchin said.

“I can’t say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to any of the things because all I’ve asked for, I want the NRA to tell me why we have any weapon you might want.  Is there any grounds or any changes or anything they would like to look at?  I don’t know.  I can’t even get a conversation to have responsible people at the table to finally come out with a conclusion.”

In response to an announcement by the NRA that they would hold a press conference on Friday and provide “meaningful contributions” to the gun control conversation, Manchin added: “I’m so proud of the NRA. I’m so pleased they agreed to be part of this.”
