BREAKING: California Lawmakers Raise The Age For Purchasing Long Guns From 18 To 21


Legislators in the Golden State on Wednesday voted to raise the age someone can purchase a long gun from 18 to 21, the Los Angeles Timesreported. 

The bill was introduced by Sen. Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) who wanted to address concerns he had after the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 

“The two most deadly recent school tragedies have been perpetrated by people under 21 with long guns,” Portantino said on the Senate floor.

The decision comes after Parkland students put pressure on state legislators to take action to raise the long gun purchase age.
