Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene told a British journalist to ‘go back to your country’ after she was questioned on the validity of the Second Amendment and “schoolchildren being afraid of going to class.”
Greene, had just stepped away from the microphone, leaving the audience with a statement toward the gallery of reporters about how it’s ‘our job to defend the Second Amendment’ when the journalist said:
‘We don’t have guns in the UK, that is true, but we don’t have mass shootings either,’ the unidentified journalist said. ‘And our children aren’t scared to go to school.’
The politician loudly shot back: ‘You have mass stabbings, lady. You have all kinds of murder and you’ve got laws against that.’
The journalist replied back: ‘Not like the rates here.’
Greene waved off the statement, replying: ‘Well, you can go back to your country and worry about your no guns.’
The Georgia peach wrote on Twitter: ‘When British press wants to argue about our God-given American gun rights, my answer is: ‘Go back to your own country.”
Greene’s press conference comes a day after a bipartisan gun control bill passed in the Senate on Tuesday.
