(Editor’s note: We’re no fans of Lindsay Graham, an establishment-controlled neocon hack who occasionally says things right – just so he can get reelected in South Carolina. But what he said below is common sense and worth reporting on)
A favorite question that the anti-gun crowd likes to ask is “Why does anyone need an AR-15?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has a very practical answer to that, which he offered to reporters on Friday.
Sen. Lindsey Graham knocked down the idea of banning semi-automatic weapons nearly identical to those used by soldiers on the off chance a hurricane slams into his South Carolina town.
“Here’s a scenario that I think is real: There’s a hurricane, a natural disaster, no power, no cops, no anything,” the Republican lawmaker told reporters aboard Air Force One. . .
“Yeah, people, they’re not going to come to the AR-15 home,” Graham responded. “Well, I think if you show up on the porch with an AR-15, they’ll probably go down the street.”
