Sen. Graham vows to oppose assault weapons ban, says gun control zealots offer 'false sense of security'

Senator Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter to confirm the vow he made on “Fox News Sunday” this morning.

As Twitchy reported, Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif.) is introducing a new assault weapons ban. No word yet if it is still only to include deadly “devises.”

Sen. Graham vowed to oppose any such bans, and continued with the following tweets.

Of course, some trotted out the hate.

Vile gay-baiting is totally cool if it is aimed at a Republican, you see. Plus, racism or something.

But other (sane) Twitter users applaud the senator for standing up for the Second Amendment.

Indeed. Graham is right when he says that anti-gun zealots offer a false sense of security.

Those who argue otherwise would benefit from reading about how guns offer actual security to many women, and how gun ban zealots are waging a real war on women. They just might learn a little something. (You’re welcome.)

    Thank you Senator Graham for standing up for the 2nd ammendment. Do this more often. You have the ability to communicate and when you communicate conservative ideas there aren’t too many others who can do it as well as you.

    FEINSTEIN: “Well, I believe we are going to certainly try.

    Now, let me respond to Lindsey about the murder rate. Over 9,000 people are
    killed with guns a year. Where there aren’t guns, there isn’t that
    murder rate — 9,000 people. That’s a lot of people.

    Secondly, I think we’ve come to a point where these mass murders, the grievance
    killers that go out there, that get the most sophisticated weapon they
    can possibly get their hands on, and then go into movie theaters, malls,
    offices, businesses, and schools, and mow down people, you have to have
    some appropriate controls on these weapons.

    Now, he may feel safer because he has an AR-15. I don’t know, that is up to him. He would not be affected by this.”

    I’m glad that Senator Graham is against an “assault rifle ban” but the part of the program that got me shouting the question; “Why not?” at my TV is the last sentence in Senator Feinstein’s response above. What does that mean? Are special people like Senators’ and the security teams of libturds getting exemptions from whatever legislation feinstein is introducing?

      America has a 30 year experiment in taking the insane out from behind locked doors and keeping them on the street.

      Now the sane hide behind locked doors as the insane turn our “gun-free” schools, malls, and theaters into killing grounds whenever they wish. Guns, bombs, gasoline, their tools mean nothing.

      It’s not working. And the solution is NOT to disarm the sane and the responsible.

      • Gallatin

        I agree and I also want to know who gets to define who is insane for the purposes of gun ownership.

    Keep standing strong senator.

    I’m not normally a fan of Graham, but he got this one right.

    Can you imagine how many new government employees will be required to institute the Feinstein bill, based on what we know from her website?

    This is about creating a population that can’t defend itself from that “civilian securtiy force” Obama spoke about 5 years … this is about creating an unarmed class of peasants ruled by the political elite. At least Graham sees it for what it is.

    Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.
