With ISIS now targeting American soldiers and their families, the GOP wants to take action to protect them. They have proposed a bill that would allow military spouses to buy and possess firearms wherever they are stationed in the US.
Currently, under the Gun Control Act of 1968, civilians can only buy guns in the state where they legally reside. An exception has been made for soldiers, since they may be stationed in a state that is not their legal residence. This bill, however, would expand that exception to include the spouses of service members.
“Considering the threats we face from Islamic extremists, foreign and domestic, and lone wolves, it is prudent that our military families have the tools they need to protect their loved ones,” he said.
“Spouses should be able to purchase handguns in the state where their husband or wife is stationed,” he added. “They have the right to protect themselves, and this bill allows them to fully exercise their 2nd Amendment right.”
