On Friday, the House passed an amendment to the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) exempting members of the military from Washington, D.C. gun laws. Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) filed the amendment, which says military personnel living or stationed in D.C. would be exempt.
“Representative Gingrey’s anti-home-rule amendment continues a pattern of Republican assaults on our local rights and gun safety laws, which we know how to fight,” said Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC).
"If there were a problem involving guns and our active military, he would not target only the District of Columbia," she added.
