Share

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia gave a fiery defense of the Second Amendment on Wednesday to a British journalist who tried to claim some form of superiority over America.

The confrontation took place during a Capitol news conference.

Greene shared a clip of the moment 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 wrote on Twitter. As of Thursday evening, the tweet had over 28,000 likes.

“It’s our job to defend the Second Amendment,” she said.

Greene then stepped away from the podium, only to be hectored by the British journalist.

Does America need the Second Amendment?

“We don’t have guns in the U.K., that is true, but we don’t have mass shootings, either. Children aren’t scared to go to school,” the reporter said.

Greene responded instantly.

“You have mass stabbings, lady! You have all kinds of murder and you’ve got laws against that,” she said.

“Nothing like the same rates here,” the reporter argued.

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

Many said the Republican spoke for them.


In April, four people were killed in a knife attack in South London, according to Bloomberg.

Last year, London recorded its highest ever death toll from teenage stabbings, with 30 deaths, the BBC reported.

Yvette Cooper, who bears the title of shadow home secretary, talked at the time about the “knife crime epidemic,” according to The Guardian.

“It is truly awful that more young lives have been lost to the epidemic of knife crime across the country. No family should have to go through losing a child in this way,” she said.
