Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham defended the right to own assault weapons, declaring he had an AR-15 and he was prepared to use it to defend his home.
Graham, a conservative Republican who was a close ally of Donald Trump on Capitol Hill, said owned the deadly weapon to fight off any gangs that would come to his neighborhood in the event of a natural disaster in his home state.
'I own an AR-15. If there's a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can't protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last one that the gang will come to because I can defend myself. You don't have to have an AR-15, but if you have one lawfully, I think you should be allowed to keep it,' he told Chris Wallace on 'Fox News Sunday.'

Tough talking Flimsey Grahamnesty.
He’s ready to provide his friends across the aisle a permanent majority with amnesty like he has already done THREE times before.
Tomorrow’s marading gang is today’s illegal border crossers.
Stupid Linda. Yes, let’s keep reinforcing the notion that AR-15’s are only for killing people.
Rather than sometimes for killing people. Ground hogs, coyotes, evil concentric marks on paper...
Easy there, Linda.
Little Chrissy Wuss had no idea that the Second Amendment was written precisely to protect the ownership of weapons like the AR series.
It was written, indeed, to preserve individual right to “keep and bear” every infantry weapon assigned to an individual soldier. One can even argue for crew-served weapons.
That is so spot-on.
Natural Disaster: Liberals in charge...
But first, he’d vow to get to the bottom of the maraud, you know, to find out how it happened.
And it’s not a goddam assault weapon.
He should do what he does best....send them a sternly worded letter......
Time at the range? Practice shooting from uncomfortable positions while sheltered from incoming fire. Fit to race from covered position to covered position?
In Graham’s town it would be roving bands of Clemson students.
There is a reason that the marines are such effective fighters. Under 30 something, constant fitness training and constant marksmanship training. Anyone with a full time desk job or standing up and bloviating at press conferences can do it. Just watch this....
Hey, if they are marauding after a drunken binge it could be a fair fight.
He’s in the government he could even obtain a few mob stopper cars with RPG’s.
The 2nd Amendment is about killing people, not ground hogs and coyotes.
That said, I'm shocked this isn't the Babylon Bee, and still don't trust Grahamnesty to vote conservative on any vote that is close.
This guy goes on tv weekly and embarrasses himself.
Big friggin phony plastic do nothing POS.
‘’Atta girl Linda! Show ‘em how tough you are sweetie!
