LYING Sen. Graham: Xmas Shoppers In My Hood Begging "Please don't let government take my guns away"

"I don't know if there's anything Lindsey Graham can do in the Senate to stop mass murder from somebody that's hell bent on doing crazy things," the South Carolina Republican said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"We can talk all day long, we had an armed guard in Columbine, we had an assault ban, neither one of them worked," he said. "We're talking about preventing mass murder by nontraditional criminals, people who are not traditionally criminals, who are not wired right for some reason," he said. Still, Graham would support more security in schools.

But he wouldn't back a new assault weapon ban or similar legislation.

"People where I live - I've been Christmas shopping all weekend - have come up to me, 'please don't let the government take my guns away," he said. "And i'm going to stand against another assault ban because it didn't work before and it won't work in the future."

4. Where was he shppping?

A gun mall filled with gun buyers that don't have their mind right? That probably think it would be okay to shoot their guns in the middle of the city because it is their god given right to do so?

5. Yeah

I was at the gym today and everybody there was worried about their guns being taken. Ok, I don't have it in writing and nobody actually told me, but I know what they are thinking! The voices inside my head tell me so!

9. That's the ost likely scenario.

That nice, cushy taxpayer subsidy he gets is just too important to lose and losing that would make him unworthy of all the perks he gets from his overlords.

12. as i recall there was a huge problem with the loopholes that riddled the ban, making it weak

and ineffcient. And didn't they grandfather in existing assault weapons? Yeah, that works...
