    Got this very disappointing reply today:

    Dear Mr. Johnson:

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on potential legislation relating to firearm ownership and background checks from Senator Manchin.

    At this time, Senator Manchin has yet to introduce legislation relating to firearm ownership or background checks. I continue to receive numerous constituent letters on this issue and will continue to monitor any legislative proposals on firearms.

    Gun shows have become a way for criminals and gun traffickers to purchase weapons without a background check and without a record of purchase. Because some gun sellers at these shows are not required to follow the same procedures as are licensed gun seller, guns may be sold to criminals or the mentally unstable without any record being created for law enforcement. The International Association of Chiefs of Police supports improving and expanding the background check process to ensure that registration and background check is conducted for every gun sale.

    When our children and families are no longer safe at our schools, in our malls, and in our movie theaters, then we as a country must take action. The shocking number of public shootings throughout the country last year, culminating in Newtown, Connecticut, demands that we engage in a serious national discussion about gun violence, not just in terms of weapons and bullets, but also including mental health access, public safety officers, and our responsibility both as individuals and a society.

    Gun control is a complex issue and we must work together to uphold our Constitution while at the same time ensuring that our communities are safe. We can and must act to ensure tragedies like this never happen again. Should any legislation come before the Senate for a vote, I will keep your views in mind. Thank you again for getting in touch with me.

    It's obvious from his letter that he will vote for at least a "Universal Background Check." He left everything else open so it's hard to say what his stance is on other restrictions.
