Sen. Joe Manchin, a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, says it's time to discuss gun policy and move toward action on gun regulation following the school shooting in Connecticut that killed 20 children.

The conservative West Virginia Democrat said Monday he agrees with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has advocated banning the sale of assault weapons.

Manchin tells MSNBC's "Morning Joe" says he is a "proud outdoorsman and hunter, but this doesn't make sense."

He is the most prominent gun rights advocate to speak publicly in the wake of the shooting.
