Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas (D) joined Tucker Carlson to talk about the March For Our Lives movement and what gun control advocates are pushing for. Thomas spent most of her time talking about banning assault weapons, although she backpedaled when Carlson asked her why she voted yes on a bill that would disarm Georgians.

Of course, pro-gun advocates wasted no time slamming Thomas and her lack of firearms knowledge.
.@itsericathomas, you mentioned that you wanted to change the “laws.” Do you know the distinction between a law and the Bill of Rights? Do you know how the Second Amendment is amended? Tell me every way that it can be amended. I’ll be waiting. @TuckerCarlson #QAnon #lalege #2A pic.twitter.com/9OaliHhCsu

Gun control advocates are quick to throw around terms like “assault rifle” or “assault weapon” and they can’t even define what those weapons look like.

Or she truly believes what she’s saying.

Translation: a gun goes pew pew when you pull the trigger.
Imagine that, a Democrat lying about guns.
Wonders never cease.

Is she lying or is she uneducated?
Things that make you go, “hmm.”
@itsericathomas Considering how black people have been treated in this country, in my lifetime they were doing experiments on u & considering the belief blacks are still oppressed/victimized even today by a systemically racist govt, why would you give them your guns?#Tucker

Plus, I hear the #NRA trained Black Americans to protect themselves from the Southern Democrats that were killing them.

OH NO! THE BIG SCARY GUN!
@itsericathomas At Least Answer 1 Question for me, If we do a Total ban on Assault Weapons, what do we do Next Year when Gun Deaths Do Not Go Down in Total but U will hang your scarf on Assault Weapon Deaths go Down but NOT TOTAL DEATHS by Gun ?

I cannot believe your ignorance as seen on your interview with Tucker. If as he asked you, you are so concerned with death by gun why don't you go after all guns and cities with no answer such as Chicago and St. Louis which both have a number of black on black deaths daily, WHY?
— Jim C USA PROUD (@JDCVICHAM2017) March 27, 2018
Liberals don’t like talking about Chicago and Baltimore because they would have to admit that their leadership SUCKS. And that gun control does not work.
Why aren't you speaking out for all of your homies killed in Chicago every day and especially speaking out on black on black crimes. Instead you are going after the AR15. What a joke!
