Graham Supports Additional Funding for Intelligence Gathering, Opposes Calls for Gun Control

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on how to prevent future attacks and rejected calls for additional gun control measures.

“President Obama and Hillary Clinton are both wrong. This is not a gun control issue, it’s a terrorism issue.

“If gun control were the answer there would be no Paris and Brussels attacks.

“Instead of calling for more gun control we need a more robust intelligence gathering system and a rejection of the ‘leading from behind’ model of President Obama which allowed ISIL to come into being and continue to exist.

“There is no doubt we need more resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities.

“My goal is to prevent future attacks, not simply respond to them.”
