Graham On Stevens And The Second Amendment

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today reacted to an op-ed written by former associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Paul Stevens that argued for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

“I will protect the Second Amendment, not repeal it.

“Like every American, Justice Stevens is entitled to his opinion, but I am very glad he is now retired.  And I have zero intention of following his counsel.  In fact, statements like this epitomize out-of-touch liberals who do not appreciate the important role the Second Amendment has played – and continues to play – in our nation.   

“Finally, statements like this should remind conservatives just how important Supreme Court nominations can be.  It makes me appreciate President Trump’s nomination and the Senate’s confirmation of Justice Gorsuch even more.”
