The nation know walks with them forever. When the choice is a gun or a child is there any doubt what the Second Amendment intended?
This didn't mention a madman with a gun. It states an extremist with a weapon. In Colorado, there is every estimation the gunman will be found to be sane. In Connecticut, the extremist owned the gun which killed her and others. There is no room for extremism in the USA when it is met with weapons. The Second Amendment does not guarantee every extremist can arm themselves for a personal agenda of violence.
Senator Manchin stated, there is no support for passage of an assault gun weapon ban only. He is correct. That is not a strange statement nor should be taken lightly, because, the American people don't want to ban only assault weapons and be done with it. The American people want comprehensive policy to address all the issues Americans are faced with in a culture of gun violence. The ban of assault weapons is only one aspect of the change in the policy in the USA.
