Franklin Graham: “We don’t need gun control, we need border control”

Frankin Graham, with his father Billy Graham

In a facebook post that quickly garnered over a hundred and forty thousand likes, the Reverend Graham, son of Billy Graham, mourned the San Bernadine shooting and made an appeal to Obama for stronger border control. The post has more than 80000 direct shares already – This what he said:

“It’s confirmed—San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook was a devout Muslim. Friends say he had memorized the Koran. The headlines say Farook and his wife were a couple “bent on jihad.” President Obama and his administration are trying to blame this incident on gun control when it was caused by hate-filled hearts intent on killing infidels in the name of Islam. Take away the guns and this couple would’ve still slaughtered innocent civilians. Their apartment was a bomb-makingfactory! It’s happened in France and it’s happening here. ISIS has warned us that more attacks like this are going to follow. Next time it could be a mall or a school, but until our politicians understand and admit the threat of radical Islam we’re going to have more of these horrible acts of violence. Farook’s wife, Tafsheen Malik, was allowed into America on a “K-1” Fiance visa and reports now confirm she had pledged allegiance to ISIS before the massacre. Mr. President, we don’t need more gun control—we need border patrol. No Muslims should be allowed into this country until there’s a process in place to fully vet them. We’ve got to turn away those who could potentially pose a threat until this war with radical Islam is over. Please join me in continuing to pray for the family members of the victims in this tragic shooting as the funerals and memorials services will begin to take place.”
