Echoing the National Rifle Association, Graham argued before the Senate Judiciary Committee that enhanced background checks are not needed because the laws currently on the books are not enforced well enough.Lindsay Graham is nothing if not a contentious dickhead. He began to attack the police officer, interrupting him and trying to challenge him, complaining that "I'll ask the questions", as the officer wanted to make a point..
“When almost 80,000 people fail a background check and 44 people or prosecuted, what kind of deterrent is that?” he asked. “I mean, the law obviously is not seeing that as important, if it’s such an important issue, why aren’t we prosecuting people who fail a background check?”
And he did:
“I want to stop 76,000 people from buying guns illegally,” he said. “That’s what a background check does. If you think we’re going to do paperwork prosecutions, you’re wrong.”The committee broke into spontaneous applause.
Video shows graham as an asshole in his natural habitat.
Republicans want to axe all budgets and then turn around and tell american they have to protect themselves.
I cannot believe they get away with this.
