Marjorie Taylor Greene tells reporter go back to your country

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday got into a heated back-and-forth with a British journalist who questioned US Gun laws at a press briefing. Greene told the reporter to “go back to your country” for saying that in the UK they don’t have mass shootings.

after the scribe pushed her on America’s gun control debate during a heated back-and-forth on Second Amendment laws.

The Georgia lawmaker, who’s known for peddling conspiracy theories and being a follower of Q-Anon, argued that it’s the job of elected officials to defend Americans’ right to possess guns and pointed out that British people don’t have the same right.

“We don’t have guns in the UK, that is true, but we don’t have mass shootings either, and our children aren’t scared to go to school,” the journalist told Greene.

“You have mass stabbings, lady,” Greene shot back. “You have all kinds of murder and you’ve got laws against that,” Greene continued.

When the journalist noted the murder rates are lower in the UK, Greene told her to head back to her country.

“Well, you can go back to your country and worry about your no guns. We like ours here,” Greene said.

Greene later gloated about the moment on Twitter and posted a clip of the exchange, only to be buried in scorn.
