McSally pens bill making domestic terrorism a federal crime


After the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton were deemed domestic terrorist attacks, Arizona Senator Martha McSally (R) has penned a bill that will make domestic terrorism a federal crime.

In a press release, Sen. McSally’s bill, which will be introduced when Congress convenes in September,  will “provide federal law enforcement with new charging options” and “punishments” for individuals accused of committing acts of domestic terrorism.

According to McSally’s office, domestic terrorism “is not” a federal crime that has “specific punishments.”
