Topic: Guns on Congress Floor
Russ Parr: Congress yesterday voted to be able to have guns on the floor of Congress. Lauren Boebert and all these folks that are gun enthusiasts. I noticed that some Republicans are wearing AR-15 lapels instead of the American flag. What is your position on having guns on the floor of Congress?
Armstrong Williams: You know the United States Congress as the White House and the Supreme Court as some of the most protected government buildings in the world.
