Manchin and Toomey Reached Gun Control Deal Over Cocktails on Manchin’s Mega Yacht
Senator Mark Kirk said the following to reporters about gun control and background checks and in particular the so called bi partisan deal reached by Senators Toomey and Manchin, “You guys really ought to go out to National Harbor and see the Black Tie, which has been much of the reason for much of the bipartisan cooperation around here. Sometimes alcoholic beverages might be served and ties might … get loosened.”
So there you go. Your elected officials getting liquored up on a a mega yacht conspiring to infringe on your inherent rights.
Seriously, who in the hell do these guys think they are?
According to local press in 2005, Manchin, is part-owner of a rather nice 54-foot yacht, called the Black Tie, reportedly equipped with “two staterooms, a salon, wet bar, washer and dryer, master bath and shower and entertainment center.”
