Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter to call for more guns in schools after the horrific attack at Covenant School in Nashville on Monday.
US delegate in Georgia yesterday named The shooting was “another horrific, needless tragedy” as she was rallying for better protection of children “like gems” in schools.
She wrote, “Children and school staff should always be protected in the same way as politicians, money, gems, and gold, but more than that, by armed good guys.”
She added, “Joe Biden’s gun-free school zones have put children at risk in schools making them innocent targets for terrified, annoying patients since he served as a senator to pass this foolish law.”
The comments come after three 9-year-olds and three faculty members were killed after former student Audrey Hill, 28, opened fire at the Tennessee private school on Monday.
Hill was shot by the responding police officers, killing seven from the terrifying shootout.

In a tweet, Taylor Greene called on Biden and the Democrats to drop their Secret Service protections and put themselves on the same level as our precious, innocent, unprotected children at school.
School shootings should never happen and will immediately end when the children of our nations are defended the same way Joe Biden is being defended by good people with guns.
There were 13 school shootings in 2023, with six children killed in total and four adults or staff losing their lives.
MTG has been a strong advocate for Second Amendment rights in the aftermath of the recent mass shootings.
After the Colorado Springs shooting at Club Q last November, Biden was shocked by calls to ban assault weapons.
“Banning ‘assault weapons’ will not stop a transgender (sic) from shooting his own LGBTQ community or any other killer who is already violating laws to kill people,” she wrote on Twitter.
“More gun control laws only create more defenseless victims.”
The lawmaker posted a photo of herself holding an AR-15 assault rifle, sitting on top of a dead pig, with a helicopter in the background.
Authorities said the suspect used an assault weapon and a handgun to carry out the attack.
At the time of writing, 2.7 million people have viewed MTG’s tweet saying “School shootings… will end immediately when the children of our nations (sic) are defended the same way Joe Biden is defended”
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene last year answered gun control calls with a photo of herself, armed, crouching on a dead pig.
Audrey Hill opened fire on Covenant School, shooting and killing Evelyn Dechhaus, Haley Scruggs, and William Kenny, all nine years old.
It’s not clear what Hill’s motive was, but police believe they attended the school at some point.

According to police, Hill had detailed hand-drawn maps of the school and had been observing them.
We have a statement. We have some writings. “We have a map of how this all happened,” said Nashville Police Chief John Drake.
Nine-year-old Evelyn Dichhaus, Haley Scruggs and William Kenny were killed in the attack.
Also killed were staff members Cynthia Beck and Mike Hill, 61, and the school’s principal, Dr. Katherine Concey, 60.
Drake Hill said he had no criminal history and that police were not aware of any history of mental illness.
A school friend of the suspect told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that “nobody saw that coming” and that Hale was “nice and funny.”

Last year, Marjorie Taylor Green made headlines in the US and Britain after telling a Channel 4 reporter from the UK to “go back to your country” in a heated debate over gun control laws.
“We love (our guns) here,” she said. It was noted that the majority of voters supported stricter gun laws at the time.
After the Uvalde massacre, 65% of voters polled supported gun reform.
“Our children are not afraid to go to school,” said the London-based journalist.
– You have mass stabbings, lady. She said: You have all kinds of killing and you have laws against that.
Reporter Siobhan Kennedy responded on Twitter: “There are no mass stabbings” in the UK. But here children are afraid to go to school?
Britain ranks #191 in the world for stabbing death rate, 0.08 per 100,000 people, and #189 for firearm death rate, 0.04 per 100,000.
The United States ranks 114th globally for stabbings and 32nd for gun fatalities, with 0.6 and 4.12 per 100,000, respectively.
This year, the United States has suffered 132 mass shootings and is on track to endure its worst year in history.
A total of 720 attacks are based on current trends, up from 646 last year, 690 in 2021, and 610 in 2020.
In total, 63 children have been shot and killed in the United States as a result of crime shootings this year.
