Georgia correspondent Marjorie Taylor Green told a British journalist to “go back to her country” when the author pushed her into a heated debate over US gun control during a heated debate over Second Amendment laws.
The 48-year-old firebrand Republican, known for supporting conspiratorial ideologies and being a follower of Q-Anon, made the remarks after telling reporters during a press briefing on Wednesday that it was the job of elected officials. They defend the right of Americans to own guns.
“We don’t have guns in Britain, that’s true, but we don’t have large-scale shootings,” the unidentified journalist shouted.
“And our children are not afraid to go to school.”
Green fired back: “You’ve been stabbed a lot, lady.”
“You have all kinds of murders and you have laws against it,” Green continued.
When the journalist noticed that the homicide rate in Britain was low, the correspondent asked him to go back across the pond.
“Well, you can go back to your country and worry about not having your gun,” the controversial politician said. “We like our here.”
Green Later on Twitter I was happy about this moment. And posted a clip of the exchange.
“When the British press wants to discuss our God-given American gun rights, my answer is: ‘Go back to your country,'” he said.
The identity of the journalist is not yet clear.
