Washington -- Many lawmakers have touted themselves as responsible gun owners amid the national debate on gun control. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-s.C.) took things a step further on Wednesday while pushing back against the call for new gun laws -- by professing his love for Quentin Tarantino and his violent movies.

"Being from South Carolina, I've owned guns all of my life," Graham said at a press conference. "I own an Ar-15. I saw the movie 'Django [Unchained].' I like Quentin Tarantino."

"That may say a lot about my movie taste, but there are many moving parts to this," he added.

It's not the first time Graham has invoked his Ar-15 while arguing against new gun laws -- the senator recently mentioned his semi-automatic rifle while making the case that high-capacity magazines are needed to protect families.

It was, however, the first time Graham has weighed in on Tarantino's much-debated slavery revenge flick. »
