Lindsey Graham Mocked For Boasting He Could Shoot “Gangs” With His AR-15 After Natural Disaster

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham had the internet rolling on the floor with laughter after his admission on Fox News Sunday that he owns an AR-15 to fight off marauding “gangs” coming to his house after a natural disaster.

Instead of having a shovel ready to dig survivors out of the rubble, Graham told Fox News host Chris Wallace he’d be at home with his AR-15, ready to pick off gangs presumably at least partly made up of his own constituents.

“I own an AR-15,” Graham told Fox News viewers. “If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last one that the gang will come to, because I can defend myself.”

Graham mentioned his home protection plans in response to Wallace’s question about the gun control debate that’s taking place after recent mass shootings in the U.S.

Many critics on Twitter mocked his ridiculous boast, with one commenter writing, “Only gang he will see are selling cookies.”
