Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican, says a gun incident from her childhood school years cemented her support for the Second Amendment today.
“It was one of the scariest days of my life, and it happened to be when Joe Biden turned America’s schools into gun free school zones,” Greene recalled during an interview this week with the Just the News, Not Noise television show. “It was in 1990. I was 16 years old, and one morning one of our schoolmates brought guns to school in a duffel bag on the school bus, saying it was like a school project, brought them into his first-period class and he took over our entire school with guns.”
“And the reason why he was able to do that is we had no good guy with a gun in our school. Our principal, we didn’t have a resource officer, we had no one,” she added. And so all of our classes went on lockdown and the only thing we knew is that there was another student on the loose with guns and all of our lives were in danger. And that really, really set in to me and many of my friends that we learned a really very important lesson that day,” she added.
Greene continued, saying, “You never want to be at the mercy of a madman with a gun. You always want to be able to protect yourself and protect others and that’s what I walked away from my school that day knowing.”
Greene said she’s been “fighting really hard” against the Democrats’ gun control legislation because she believes it won’t make anyone safer.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
