Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) ripped into Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). In a recent episode of her podcast, Greene criticized Graham for being open to voting on gun control legislation. She argued that his decision would only hurt the people who voted him into office.
“There’s a lot of gun owners in South Carolina,” said Greene. “They are not going to be very happy with the senator that they elected and sent to Washington, D.C., to represent their values, to defend their freedoms, and protect their gun rights and uphold the Constitution. They are not going to like it very much when he’s up here helping Joe Biden pass his communist agenda and go ahead and destroy their Second Amendment rights.”
Additionally, she accused him of helping Biden pass his “communist agenda” and wanting to destroy the Second Amendment. Graham is a member of a bipartisan negotiation in the Senate regarding gun control. Graham issued a statement following Biden’s speech in response to recent mass shootings.
“I stand ready to vote on all the proposals mentioned by President Biden tonight, he stated. “I encourage the Democratic Leader to bring them forward for votes.”
