Native America Calling: Tribal gun laws
Wednesday, April 19, 2023

Tribal gun laws
As Americans debate gun restrictions amid the mass shooting epidemic, proposed federal legislation would make it easier for tribal citizens to acquire guns using only their tribal ID.

A number of Native governments prohibit gun possession of any kind, including the Navajo Nation, where violating the law could mean permanent forfeiture.

Wednesday on Native America Calling, we look at current and pending gun laws.

Guests on Native America Calling
Joe Talachy (from the Pueblo of Pojoaque), owner and founder of Indigenous Arms
