FIRST ON FOX — Republican Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen is prepping a lawsuit against the Biden Administration over its gun violence executive order, saying the president “should know better” than to enact “draconian gun control measures.”
Knudson tells Fox Digital that his office is waiting for the Biden Administration to act on its order — which President Biden calls a “whole-of-government approach” to “pursue every legally available and appropriate action” to combat gun violence.
The White House said it wants to utilize federal agencies to promote red flag laws, expand background checks and collect more information on federally licensed firearms dealers.
“They don’t dare say it out loud, but what they’re talking about is going after private firearm transactions and trying to require Americans to do a background check on every private firearms transfer,” said Knudson. “Well, as nice sounding as that might be, what do we know about criminals? They don’t follow the law, and they don’t get their firearms from retailers. They steal guns.”
