Marjorie Taylor Greene appears to kick teenage gun control activist – The Guardian US

A Gen-Z activist claims that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) kicked her outside the Capitol while they were having a conversation about gun violence. A spokesman for Greene disputed the claims.

The activist, who is from Voters of Tomorrow, films Greene as she replies to a question about gun legislation. Greene tweeted the clip on Twitter and said that gun control will not create a utopian society.

Greene and Voters of Tomorrow posted videos to Twitter of Greene leaving a news conference while being questioned by activists about gun violence. Greene appears to step on the activist’s foot.

The incident occurred after the House’s conservative Freedom Caucus held a news conference to discuss a government funding bill being debated in the Senate. A group of activists approached Greene and asked to take a photo.

This is not the first controversy that Greene has had in encounters with activists. Greene harassed David Hogg, a gun-control activist, before she was elected to Congress. Greene she also accused Ocasio-Cortez of supporting “terrorists” in a 2021 hallway encounter, which led to Ocasio-Cortez calling on congressional leadership to review its security posture to protect elected officials.
