Congresswoman Calls on Capitol Police to Address Greene's 'Dangerous Threats in My Workplace'

Share

Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Mich.) expressed her concern for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) mental health following her latest comments on the Second Amendment.

Stevens took to Twitter to react to comments Greene made about exercising Second Amendment rights.

“Ultimately, the truth is it’s our Second Amendment rights, our right to bear arms, that protects Americans and gives us the ability to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government,” Greene said. “And I hate to use this language, but Democrats, they’re exactly … they’re doing exactly what our Founders talked about when they gave us the precious rights that we have.”

Stevens tweeted, “I am concerned about the mental health of my colleague from Georgia and would like [Capitol Police] to address her dangerous threats in my workplace.”

She added, “Just as we would in any school or job site, we cannot let calls for gun violence go unchecked.”

Greene also said she is not a “violent person” and hopes to “never see a civil war in this country.”

The Republican made headlines in August when she suggested individuals could threaten police with guns if they show up asking for their vaccination status.

“You lucky people here in Alabama might get a knock on your door, because I hear Alabama might be one of the most unvaccinated states,” Greene said at a fundraising event in Alabama.

She added, “Well, Joe Biden wants to come talk to you guys. He’s going to be sending one of his police state friends to your front door to knock on the door, take down your name, your address, your family members’ names, your phone numbers, your cellphone numbers, probably ask for your Social Security number and whether you’ve taken the vaccine or not.”

Greene continued, “What they don’t know is in the South, we all love our Second Amendment rights, and we’re not real big on strangers showing up on our front door, are we? They might not like the welcome they get.”

On Tuesday, Greene introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) to eliminate funding for gun control.
