    Senator Graham says people need more guns after police budgets are cut and wants more prosecutions of people who fail background checks

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) initiated a frontal assault on the basic premises of the proposed assault weapons ban, going after witness and Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn, whose retaliatory outburst drew boisterous applause from the public gallery, briefly disturbing order in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
    “Clearly your focus is not prosecuting people who fail background checks,” Graham asserted. “When almost 80,000 people fail background checks but only 44 are prosecuted, what kind of deterrent is that?”
    After repeatedly attempting to interject that “paper chases” are not his responsibility, Chief Flynn lost his patience: “I want to stop 70,000 people from buying guns illegally — that is what a background check does!”

    Graham segued into a side point about budget cuts, noting that citizens may have to increasingly fend for themselves after confirming that the chief’s budget is set to decline.

    He finally grew a pair. How rare is that
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
