If passed it would allow all Tribal members to lawfully purchase firearms using their Tribal government-issued identification or I.D. Currently, Federal law prohibits the use of a Tribal I.D. when purchasing a firearm.
Oddly enough a person could use a foreign government-issued passport as proper identification when buying a gun, but Native Americans are unable to use their Tribal I.D. Needless to say, this really needs to change.
The "Tribal Firearm Access Act" would further protect the 2-A rights of Native Americans
That's exactly what this bill would do. It would amend the current Federal firearm laws to allow all Native Americans across the Nation to use their Tribal I.Ds as proper identification when purchasing a firearm.

Here's a quote from the official website of Senator Mullin. “Tribal citizens, and all law-abiding Americans, have a fundamental right to keep and bear arms.” said Senator Markwayne Mullin. “For too long, a lapse in existing law has prohibited Tribal members from using their Tribal government-issued ID to lawfully purchase firearms. Our commonsense legislation corrects this unconstitutional infringement. I’m proud to be leading this legislation in the Senate to protect Tribal members’ ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights.”
