Lindsey Graham

Breitbart: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says firearm confiscation laws portend a way that Democrats and Republicans can “come together.”

CNN reported that Graham has long supported red flag laws, which allow a court to issue firearm confiscation orders for individuals deemed a threat to themselves or others.

House Democrats have already passed legislation during this Congress to criminalize private gun sales and extend the instant background check for firearm purchases. They are now pressing for $50 million in annual funding to bring academia into the gun control push.

The Democrats have also been vocal in their support for gun confiscation laws, and this is where Graham believes the left and right can come together.

He told CNN, “I haven’t really looked at the House package, but this is to me the area where we can come together.” Graham has scheduled a March 26 Judiciary Committee hearing on the confiscation orders.

California, Illinois, and Florida all have gun confiscation orders via red flag laws. California’s law did nothing to prevent the November 7, 2018, Borderline Bar & Grill shooting in which 12 innocents were killed. The law in Illinois did not prevent the February 15, 2019, shooting at Henry Pratt Company, where five innocents were killed. And the Florida law did not stop the August 26, 2018, shooting at Jacksonville Landing or the January 23, 2019, shooting at SunTrust Bank in Sebring. A total of eight innocents were killed in the two Florida shootings.

CNBC noted that Graham’s willingness to “[hold] a hearing on gun control is … a remarkable development in the GOP-dominated Senate.”

  1. first the guns, then Medicare, then SS, then our religious rights. They want to control EVERYTHING. Now Obama’s Syrian army is waking up to take over our country. Check out what’s happening to the Demrats. The Muslims are taking over one town at a time in the eastern US. We must stop the radical rag heads. I know all Muslims aren’t bad, but the two on the Demrat side are. Why does the one wear the rag on her head. What could she be hiding in it. She has been known to side with Isis.

  2. Consider the possibility that a hearing might be a good way to highlight the unconstitutionality of any gun law that would only affect law-abiding citizens, and the ignorance of the people proposing them. “To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the law abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless.” – Lysander Spooner.

    Criminals don’t follow laws so don’t endanger law abiding citizens…
