Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene gave a five minute floor speech defending Second Amendment rights on Tuesday.
Highlights from the speech are listed below:
- “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.”
- “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.”
