Legislation Would Ease Gun Restrictions For Military Spouses

posted on August 12, 2015

A bill has been introduced that would make it easier for military spouses to purchase a firearm, allowing the husband or wife of a service member to buy a gun in the state where their spouse is stationed.

The legislation, authored by Senators Mike Rounds, Steve Daines, James Inhofe, Mike Enzi and Mike Crapo, would also allow military spouses to buy a gun in a neighboring state if the service member crosses a state’s border to go to their base.

According to Sen. Rounds’ office, military spouses are currently limited to legally buying a gun in the state they permanently reside in. The proposed legislation would remove these restrictions.

“At a time of increased threats on military bases and to members of our Armed Forces, it is as important as ever to give military families the opportunity to protect themselves and their loved ones,” he said in a statement.
