U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) may not be able to participate in any of the committees, but she is nevertheless letting her voice be heard in regards to issues that she believes her constitutes want her to speak out on.
Today, she spoke on the House floor for five minutes, decrying what she called “tyrannical gun control bills” – H.R. 8 (National Gun Registration) & H.R. 1446 (Permanent Firearm Waiting List).
Greene began the speech by saying, “I rise today in opposition of gun control bills, I rise today in support of our Second Amendment, the greatest freedom that we have as Americans and a right that people all over the world wished that they had.”
“H.R. 8 (National Gun Registry) and H.R. 1446 (Permanent Firearm Waiting List) both gun control bills infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms. We must stand up and stop the constant flow of gun control bills that constantly come out of this house,” Greene explained.
Greene believes, “The right to defend oneself is something that should never require us to be on a list, it should never require us to pay a tax, it should never require us to wait to be able to purchase a firearm to defend ourselves, it should never require rules or shame, or condemnation from another American.”
“Criminals don’t care about guns laws. Criminals just don’t care, they are going to commit their crime, they’re going to murder someone, whether they have a legal gun, an illegal gun, a knife, a hammer, or you name it. They’re criminals. They break the law,” Greene added.
In a tweet, Greene said, “I OPPOSE both of these bills and urge every one of my Republican colleagues to do so as well.”
