U-S Senator Joni Ernst doesn’t believe the gun control legislation which passed the U-S House on Wednesday will ever see the light of day in the Senate.

Iowa Congressman Steve King, a Republican, voted against what he called “a resolution that seeks to place unconstitutional restrictions on the God-given, 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms enshrined for all Americans in our Constitution.”

King urged President Trump to veto the bill, should it reach his desk.
