WASHINGTON, DC – Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene recently tracked down Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, putting him on the spot regarding legislation that will potentially be brought forth that has the propensity to infringe on Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
The Republican firebrand from Georgia has recently taken issue over concerns that Senator Graham may side with Democrats on pushing forward Biden’s agenda on further restricting Second Amendment rights – particularly with respect to red flags laws.
While appearing alongside the American Firearms Association earlier in June, Rep. Greene shared Senator Graham’s office line and told Republican voters to contact his office and demand that he vote “no” on red flag laws.
“So, here’s what I’ve been asking everyone to do: I’m asking everyone to call Senator Lindsey Graham’s office, 202-224-5972. Call Senator Graham and tell him to stop helping Joe Biden destroy your freedoms, take away your gun rights, and burn this country down. Tell Senator Graham to be a Republican and to do his job in the Senate – that is hold the line and vote ‘no’ to Joe Biden’s red flag gun confiscation bills.”
Rep. Greene recently tracked down Senator Lindsey Graham, asking him directly on whether he’d align with any red flag legislation introduced that would “violate due process.”
“I’m a gun owner and also a business owner, and I don’t know if you support this bill coming through – the red flag gun confiscation bill. But I have to ask if you guys would consider a way to put in this bill where it doesn’t violate due process.”
Senator Graham delivered a somewhat comforting response for those concerned about far-reaching anti-gun legislation, telling the congresswoman, “There won’t be a bill without that.”
Back in late May, Red Voice Media reported on how some Republicans were willing to entertain discussions with Democrats on pushing through gun reform legislation in the wake of the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde – with Senator Graham being among those to voice support on reaching some sort of consensus at the time.
Senator Graham at the time stated, “I look forward to coming back after the break, see if we can find a pathway forward on common-sense gun reforms,” but didn’t expand on what exactly “common-sense gun reform” actually looks like.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also tasked his colleagues in the Senate to reach across the political aisle to hammer out some bipartisan solutions in the realm of gun reform, telling CNN in May, “What I’ve asked Senator Cornyn to do is to meet with the Democrats who are interested in getting a bipartisan solution and come up with a proposal, if possible, that’s crafted to meet this particular problem.”
