Poor Marjorie Taylor Greene. The Georgia Republican congresswoman has virtually no power despite being a member of the House of Representatives, so she’s decided that now she’ll try to tell our Canadian allies how they should conduct their own internal policy on the issue of guns and gun control.
On Monday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he was proposing legislation that would greatly restrict gun ownership in his country, CNN reports:
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday announced the introduction of a bill that would place a national freeze on handgun ownership across Canada.
“What this means is that it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada,” Trudeau said in a news conference.
“In other words we’re capping the market,” he added.
If passed, the new anti-gun legislation will fine gun smuggling and trafficking “by increasing maximum criminal penalties and providing more tools for law enforcement to investigate firearm crimes,” Trudeau said.
The new legislation would also require that long gun magazines “can never” hold more than five rounds.
But to hear Rep. Greene tell it, Trudeau has become a communist dictator whose father was actually Fidel Castro, and she spilled her impotent rage all over Twitter for the world to see and scoff at. Take a look:
There’s a lot to unpack there, but let’s see what we can do.
First of all, Canada can pass whatever laws they want regarding their own country. End of story.
Secondly, who is going to invade Canada? The only real threat they face is a spillover of violence from the United States. And Margie’s assertion that Russia is a threat to the Canadians is laughable.
Lastly, no one in this country has suggested doing anything like what Trudeau is proposing, so why is Greene getting so damn agitated? Simple. She’s running for reelection and needs issues she can use to frighten voters.
It didn’t take long before Marjorie was slapped down on social media.
