U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- NEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF, the trade association for the firearm industry, joined U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R – S.C.) at Palmetto State Armory, in Greenville, S.C., to commend him for his commitment to Real Solutions for Safer Communities. NSSF revealed Senator Graham is receiving an A+ rating, the highest possible score, in the trade association’s congressional scorecard. Senator Graham earned the score for his leadership on firearm safety initiatives, true gun safety legislation and programs that prevent firearms from being possessed by prohibited individuals while respecting the rights of law-abiding citizens.

“The firearm industry is proud to award Senator Graham our highest rating,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President, and General Counsel, who joined Senator Graham at the Palmetto State Armory event. “His commitment to firearm safety and protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens is long-standing. Senator Graham has been a champion for the industry’s ‘Real Solutions. Safer Communities’ campaign, which is focused on ensuring those who should never possess a firearm are not able to get hold of one. Senator Graham continues to push for legislation to protect federally-licensed firearm retailers and hold criminals accountable for thefts and robberies that put our communities in danger. At the same time, he’s a vocal proponent of NSSF’s Project Childsafe, a proven safety program to safely store firearms in the home and keep guns from those who should never have them.”

Senator Graham is sponsoring the Federal Firearms Licensee Protection Act (S. 1788), which would strengthen and enhance criminal penalties for firearm burglaries and robberies of gun shops to send a strong deterrence message to violent criminals engaging in stealing guns, help provide for safer communities, assist law enforcement and protect the livelihoods of firearm retailers.

Senator Graham, as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has been a consistent proponent of the firearm industry’s partnership with law enforcement to bring true gun safety programs to communities across America. That includes the Operation Secure Store partnership with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to match reward offers to bring to justice criminals that victimize firearm retailers and put communities at risk for violent crime. Senator Graham is also a stalwart supporter of NSSF’s Project Childsafe partnership with 15,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, which has distributed 38 million firearm safety kits, including free gun locks that render a firearm inoperable when properly installed.

Senator Graham’s role Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is crucial to safeguarding Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and he has amassed a voting record that underscores his commitment to gun rights. Under his leadership, the committee approved the nominations of more than 200 federal judges to lifetime appointments, including two Associate Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, 53 judges to the U.S. Courts of Appeal, 151 judges to U.S. District Courts, and two judges to the U.S. Court of International Trade. His influence on ensuring judges who respect Second Amendment rights will transform the judiciary and courts’ treatment of God-given liberties.

Miss Lindsey voted to confirm obama’s two anti-gun female Justices and voted for whatever McCain told him to vote for that obama wanted.


Graham WROTE his own version of Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders and if you think this weasel is a champion of #2A rights you need to re-evaluate your knowledge of the #2A and what you really support because you really don’t support #2A. This is a mockery to the cause.


The NSSF has a consistent record of ONLY supporting their membership (commercial manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers) and not the general shooting public and the 2nd Amendment. The are supporters of the BATFE and their failure to condemn or disavow much of the anti-gun legislation, laws and politicians further proves their hypocrisy. Supporting Graham is just another nail in their coffin as Graham flip flops on support of 2nd Amendment issues and the conservative agenda every time he opens his mouth.


Seems the jury is out on Mr. Graham… MANY think he’s playing two sides of the gun coin. I believe it is time to pull EVERYTHING out of the closet on Mr. Graham.

Like another Senator we all know too well. Collins.


Why in Hells creation do you fools continue to praise this creature for ANYTHING after the decades of damage and dirty deals he and his lover No Name did ? Why!? Are you that big of a fool? He pretends to care suddenly and he is now the good guy? Why are you people such gullible fools??? Mark my words, you’ll regret ever believing this liar one day. He is a “double”. . It’s like your wife cheating on you for years, with every man she met and then she tells you she will never cheat again because she cut… Read more »

 Lindsey Graham is a utterly worthless RINO.


NSSF’s endorsements apparently mean as much as an endorsement from NRA-ILA, which is zilch.


Bring reciprocity and constitutional carry to the floor and this time, make it happen.


RIGHT ON BROTHER, long overdue !!


Yep! If he is re-elected, which he probably will be, we will be treated to four years of him trying to out-liberal Hillary Clinton. This will probably include obligatory pushes for red flag laws which may or may not necessarily follow the next Government-sponsored mass shooting incident. Near the end of that four years, he will begin trying to do a poor imitation of a conservative, per the routine he has admitted to in the past. This will carry him through to the next election as the gullible fools with short memories bleat that we cannot afford to lose his… Read more »


If ever the country needs TERM LIMITS is now !!


We needed them decades ago, Joe! That and Senate terms should be cut to four years. No politician should ever go more than four years without having to face the voters.


Left, Right, two wings of the same authoritarian bird.

I wouldn’t trust Lyndsey Graham with my gun rights or any rights as far as that goes as much as i would trust a long drink out of a toilet in Tijuana! Once an untrustworthy RINO always an untrustworthy RINO!


Considering this is the same organization that endorsed that constitution violating scumbag Barr, I’m not surprised.
