Finally, Real Common-Sense Gun Legislation

posted on May 14, 2015

A congressman from Virginia is taking the Islamic State’s recent threat to U.S. military members and their families seriously—and he’s doing something about it.

On Tuesday, Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., introduced legislation allowing military spouses to buy handguns in states where their husbands or wives are on permanent duty, directly addressing ISIS’s “hit list” of military targets, which puts military families at risk of attack.

“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,” Rigell said. “Spouses should be able to purchase handguns in the state where their husband or wife is stationed. They have the right to protect themselves, and this bill allows them to fully exercise their Second Amendment right.”
