Florida Democrat Rep. Jared Moskowitz has slammed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene over her stances on school shootings and book bans, stating that “dead kids can’t read.”

During a heated exchange on the House floor, Rep. Moskowitz criticized Greene’s controversial statements surrounding school shootings and her support for banning certain books from schools. Moskowitz argued that Greene’s position on these issues could be detrimental to the safety and education of American students.

“AR-15s? Have you seen what those bullets do to the children? You know why you don’t hunt with an AR-15 with a deer? Because there’s nothing left. And there’s nothing left of these kids when people go into school and murder them while they’re trying to read. You guys are worried about banning books? Dead kids can’t read,” Moskowitz passionately stated during the exchange.

Greene, a staunch Second Amendment advocate, has previously been criticized for her controversial statements on school shootings, including claiming that the 2018 Parkland shooting, which occurred at Moskowitz’s alma mater, was a “false flag” operation. She has also been a vocal supporter of banning books she believes promote “radical left-wing ideologies.”

Rep. Moskowitz accused Greene of perpetuating conspiracy theories and promoting censorship in the name of protecting children. “Instead of focusing on how to prevent these tragic incidents, you spread dangerous misinformation and seek to limit our students’ access to diverse viewpoints and knowledge.”

The heated exchange quickly gained attention on social media, with many condemning Greene’s positions on school shootings and book bans. Some commentators called for a stronger focus on measures to prevent gun violence and enhance school safety, while others emphasized the importance of intellectual freedom and access to diverse perspectives in education.

Greene has yet to respond directly to Rep. Moskowitz’s comments but has a history of doubling down on her controversial stances.

This latest confrontation highlights the ongoing debate surrounding gun control, school safety, and intellectual freedom in American schools.
