“There’s legislation being pushed by President Biden to ban assault weapons. We’ve been down that road before,” Sen. Graham told reporters.

“In 1994, there was an Assault Weapons Ban – the evidence indicates that there was really no change at all in crime, because the crooks are going to get a gun,” he later tweeted. “Today at @PalmettoArmory I fired one of the weapons they are trying to ban.”

As reported by WIS News 10:

“After recent mass shootings in the United States, President Joe Biden has pushed Congress to ban assault style weapons and close loopholes in the background check system.

‘I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common sense steps that will saves lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act,’ Biden said. ‘We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again.'”

“Now, why would anybody need to own an AR-15?” Sen. Graham tweeted. “If there is a breakdown of law and order, and that can happen — we’ve seen it happen in our major cities. Remember Hugo, where people were isolated for days? Remember Katrina?”

“It’s not impossible to find yourself in the modern world without any police protection, because that’s just the way the times are in which we live in,” he added. “We’re talking about defunding the police!”
