Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.), a conservative Democrat and National Rifle Association member, said Monday that after the shooting in Newtown, Conn., on Friday, it's time to discuss new regulations on assault weapons.

"I don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle," Manchin told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."  "I don't know anyone that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about."
