Controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has given a supporter an AR-15 pistol valued at $2,860.
The semi-automatic weapon features a seven-inch barrel and a "cherry bomb muzzle brake."
Supporters could register to win the weapon by giving their name, email address, and zip code to the congresswoman's re-election campaign.
On Monday, Greene posted a photo to Twitter announcing the gun had been won by a man named Marvin who was seen wearing a "Don't blame me, I voted for Trump" T-shirt and red, "keep America great" hat while holding the firearm.
Here's some of what people were saying about the giveaway:

No words for how ridiculous this and you are.

"STOP SOCIALISM" Read that if you're in G-14 and want to vote for MTG next year. America has numerous "socialist" programs you might know: Social Security; SNAP; Medicare/Medicaid; Unemployment; Supplemental Security Income, to name a few. She wants to take those away from you.

Will Marvin be one of the guys you'll give guided tours to at the Capitol?

Marge, take a trip to “social democracies" like Canada, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand.
Things are better there.
You might learn something like your visit to the Holocaust museum. 🤷♀️

So what are you gonna do if Marvin uses it in a mass shooting?

Sweet. Now, if someone gets passed the security guards, he can defend his gated country club community from non residents and anyone who's not an old rich white man.
Oh. And he's of the age to have Medicare. But that's not a socialized program, right? 🤔
