A US congresswoman, angered by a question from a UK reporter over a controversial gun control bill, suggested the journalist should “go back” to her country.
Channel 4 representative Siobhan Kennedy confronted Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday over Greene’s opposition to the bill.
Speaking at a press conference of the Second Amendment Caucus, Greene and her fellow pro-gun Republicans hammered the 14 GOP Senators who voted to advance gun control legislation. The bill was then passed by the House on Friday and signed into law by President Joe Biden on Saturday.
Greene has called the Republicans who helped pass the legislation “RINOs,” an acronym for ‘Republicans in Name Only.’
Reporting from the press event, Kennedy accused Greene of putting gun rights before public safety.
