Lindsey Graham took to Fox News yesterday to brag about how he owns an AR-15, the same style of weapon used in the Pulse nightclub massacre, the Sandy Hook and Parkland school murders and countless other attacks on innocent civilians.
“I own an AR-15,” Graham told Chris Wallace during a discussion of last week’s Colorado supermarket shooting. If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last the gang come to because I can defend myself.
Do you have that, folx? If there’s ever a natural disaster in South Carolina, don’t even think about going to Lindsey’s because he’ll shoot you down with the AR-15 in his bedroom closet.

Remember, this is the same guy who “screamed” during the Capitol riots and accused a policeman of not doing “enough” to protect him as he curled up in a secure room, according to the senator. Sherrod Brown.

Senator Antigay went on to say that “you don’t have to have an AR-15, but if you have one legally, I think you should be allowed to keep it.” Then he blamed “sanity” for the mass shootings.
Parkland shooting survivor and gun reform advocate Cameron Kasky took to MSNBC to detonate Graham.
“The suggestion that a twerp like Lindsey Graham might be kind of a tough guy to fend off doomsday invaders is just the story they’re selling,” Kasky said. “That’s what the gun lobby wants Republicans to say to sell more guns.”
Graham is also dragged to Twitter for his comments. Here’s what people are saying …
A terrified Lindsey Graham racing an AR-15 is a good reason to restrict gun sales.

Lindsey Graham says he owns an AR-15 to protect himself from “gangs”….

If Lindsey Graham meets a gang, he’s screwed whether he owns an AR-15 or not.

Who else seriously doubts that Lindsey Graham ever got her hands on an AR-15?

Lindsey Graham has an AR-15 because of the gangs. You know, all those gangs in his neighborhood that have been after him since he went from Bloods to Crips?.

Don’t worry, South Carolina, if a hurricane hits Lindsey Graham will kill it to death with her AR-15.

Lindsey Graham says he has an AR-15 because of the gangs. I thought the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers and 3% were on his side.

I don’t believe for a second that Lindsey Graham could successfully fire an AR-15, let alone hit her target.
