According to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a majority of the U.S. Senate would reject Joe Biden’s gun ban.
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham predicts most of the Senate will vote to “reject” a so-called “assault weapons” ban after President Joe Biden and other Democratic lawmakers pushed for reform following the deadly Boulder, Colorado, shooting.
“If there were a vote tomorrow to ban ‘assault weapons’ — I’ll make a prediction — a majority of the Senate would reject that vote,” Graham told the Washington Examiner in an interview on Wednesday. “There are Democrats living in red states that cannot vote for an ‘assault weapons’ ban, but every time there’s a tragic shooting in this country, the Left uses it as a reason to grab a gun [from a] lawful gun owner.”
This comes after Biden called for more gun control measures after the mass shooting in Colorado:

“I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common sense steps that will save lives in the future,” he said, listing a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as strengthening the background check system by closing loopholes, as areas he would like to see Congress act.
“This is not — it should not be — a partisan issue. This is an American issue,” he said. “It will save lives, American lives. We have to act.”
