As the nation continues to debate restrictions on guns, a number of Native nations have their own gun laws that visitors aren’t always aware of. A number of tribes, including the Navajo Nation, prohibit possessing guns of any kind, even in vehicles on their reservations. Violating the law could mean permanently forfeiting your firearms. At the same time, proposed federal legislation would make it easier for tribal citizens to acquire guns using only their tribal ID.
