Representative Armstrong on President Biden's call for weapons ban: "he's politicizing it"

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong is responding to President Biden's call for congress to pass legislation banning guns classified as "assault weapons".

"We could pass his ban tomorrow and it will be held unconstitutional the minute it gets to court. So I don't know if he knows that. I'm assuming he has some pretty smart lawyers on his staff that could tell him that. So not only is he politicizing it, but he is talking about a bill that will not pass constitutional muster," said Armstrong.

Biden called for the weapons ban following Monday's school shooting in Nashville, that left six people dead. Armstrong says the President should instead push for "robust enforcement of existing gun laws". 

Armstrong made the comments while appearing on "What's on Your Mind" on AM 1100 The Flag.
