SCDP STATEMENT ON SENATORS GRAHAM AND SCOTT’S REJECTION OF COMMON-SENSE GUN SAFETY

Columbia, SC – South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement today on the votes of Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott against measures that would expand background checks for gun purchases and prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns:

“I am deeply disappointed that our two Republican senators continue to put South Carolinians’ lives at needless risk by refusing to support eminently sensible gun safety measures. Our state is all too familiar with the horrors of gun violence, and the vast majority of our citizens support taking steps consistent with the Second Amendment that would significantly reduce the scourge. These common-sense steps include requiring all gun buyers to pass a background check and barring suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms. Senators Graham and Scott are wrong to oppose these two proposals, and South Carolinians know it.”
