When you’re a Republican incumbent facing a primary challenge, there’s only one thing to do: go shoot something. With lots of press.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) currently is facing state Sen. Lee Bright, former congressional candidate Richard Cash, and businesswoman Nancy Mace in the 2014 race.

Graham often discussed his AR-15 ownership during the year’s debate over gun-control measures.

Be nice people. As I remember that AR-15 was a gift from a gun company to the Senator. He is making a big deal out of it because he appreciates the gift. As to the photo with the id10t standing in front of the firing line it is probably a staged photo op with no live firing at that time.

Politicians who make a big deal of their gun ownership, and stage photo ops to demonstrate they can fire a gun, are the ones we should especially distrust, because these are the guys who will stab us in the back every chance they get.

I expect to see Chris Christie out on the range with a bunch of photographers in tow, any day now.

Lindsey Graham -- the guy who, along with John McCain, told the Egyptians that "the American People" side with the Muslim Brotherhood.

He can't be gone fast enough.

See the guys standing ahead of the firing line in the first picture?

That's how I know this is BS. He either never pulled the trigger, or he's pig-ignorant about gun safety and doesn't deserve to be employed cleaning toilets.

As the 2014 mid-terms approach, we're going to see lots of this kind of crap from liberal Democrats, and RINO incumbents. There millions of gun owners who vote, but for some reason, they're ignored......until election time.

Then, suddenly, the Democrats re-discover a well hidden love of the Second Amendment, and "go along to get along" Republicans momentarily remember their constituents.
