CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Congressman Blake Farenthold introduced a new bill on Capital Hill to protect Second Amendment rights for military families.
The "Protect Our Military Families' Second Amendment Rights Act" allows spouses of active-duty service members to purchase firearms in the state where they live due to military orders.
Currently, the Gun Control Act of 1968 mandates that citizens can legally purchase a handgun in the state where they are considered residents. Exceptions were made for active-duty military members, but not their spouses.
