Armstrong votes against gun control package

Congressman Kelly Armstrong, R-ND, released the following statement after voting against H.R. 7910 and H.R. 2377.

“Following the horrific violence in Texas two weeks ago, there were calls from across the country for us to come together and find common ground on solutions to address the root causes of violence. Preventing scenes like the one in Uvalde is something I believe we can all agree on.

“Instead of working together, Democrats rushed through gun control measures that encroach on Americans’ Second Amendment right, do little to reduce gun violence, federalize law enforcement, and have zero chance of becoming law. These bills will directly restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners in North Dakota and around the nation, turning many of them into criminals for exercising a constitutional freedom.”
