In a recent release that went out Friday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) unveiled that he has been working on a plan to employ our vetereans of the U.S. Military to halt school shootings from taking place at schools all across the nation.
This release from Graham comes in the wake of 21 people, which includes 19 children, who died last week in a shooting that took place at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, due to an 18-year-old Hispanic male storming the school and opening fire on students and staff.
“We have hundreds of thousands of well-trained former military members who could bring a lot to the table in terms of school security,” stated Graham via a post on Twitter. “ROTC instructors with firearms training should be allowed to possess weapons to enhance school security.”
“I will be working to create a certification process that allows former military members to go through school security training and become available to school districts throughout the country,” the senator went on to say. “It is time to mobilize our retired and former service members who are willing to help secure our schools. Our schools are soft targets. They contain our most valuable possession – our children, the future of our country – and must be protected.”
Graham concluded his statements by saying that all schools should be “treated like courthouses, banks, capital buildings, etc when it comes to security.”
Due to the recent wave of shootings, many Democratic lawmakers, along with Old Uncle Joe himself, have been making use of the tragedies to sound the call to impose extremely far-reaching gun control measures.
As reported by the Daily Wire, Biden has been reaching out for the banning of all semi-automatic long guns, which are currently quite popular across the United States, banning what he claims are “high-capacity magazines,” creating and implementing red flag laws that remove all due process from Americans and actually attempting to go after the manufacturers of the weapons themselves.
“We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines,” whined Biden. “And if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21, strengthen the background checks.”
In response to these calls from Old Uncle Joe in his recent gun control speech this past week, Graham stated that he was “ready to vote on all the proposals mentioned by President Biden tonight and encourage the Democratic Leader to bring them forward for votes.”
As an owner of an AR-15 himself, Graham then put out the suggestion that he would always vote no on those proposals, stating, “I also stand ready to work across the aisle to find common ground – something that was absent from President Biden’s address to the nation.”
