Gov. Brown Signs Bill Banning Gun Sales to People Under 21

Gun seizureMost people under 21 won’t be able to buy guns in California starting next year under a law Gov. Jerry Brown announced signing Friday.

It will prevent people under 21 from buying rifles and other types of guns. State law already bans people under 21 from buying handguns.

The new law exempts law enforcement, members of the military and people with hunting licenses from the restriction.

It was one of dozens of bills Brown took action on.

Democratic Sen. Anthony Portantino pointed to the shooting at a Florida high school earlier this year that killed 17 people as the reason for his bill banning gun sales and transfers to people under 21.

“I was determined to help California respond appropriately to the tragic events our country has recently faced on high school campuses,” Portantino said in a statement. …

  1. Yea right….. explain that to criminals that buy guns on the black market that are smuggled into the State. Explain that to gang members who use such actions as initiation.

    Since ignorant and immature are not allowed to buy a gun why would anyone including Democrats allow the same sector to vote?

  2. Brenda Torres says

    If they are too immature to buy a gun until they are 21 then they are too immature to VOTE!!!

  3. Say goodbye to more of your rights in the communist state of Alta California , soon to me known as Azteca America a UN province.
    Once again an oppressive illegal government is trampling our right to defend ourselves a little at a time. I guess that communist leader Jerry the Clown brown thinks that all the soldiers that under 21 can’t fight for their country as well huh. So you can’t buy a gun but you can die for your country . You can’t drink a beer but you can die for your country.
    Clearly , this is an act of aggression against citizens by an out of control Demoncrapic government.
    If you want to see how ludicrous government can be look at England where they are trying to pass a law that their citizens should have to grind the points off of their steak knives because they are a dangerous weapon.
    Sound nuts ? We are next. I for one do not need the government to protect me from myself and for now anyway i can protect myself and my family . At least for a little while longer.
    VOTE REPUBLICAN until we can do better than just a 2 party choice.

  4. let’s see, the old rules say 18 for hand guns, 21 for rifles. never could figure out the difference why anyway. at least it will be easier to pass the Firearm Safety Certificate Test now. is this going to change anything?

  5. Wait until they make it illegal for seniors over the age of sixty-five to purchase a gun. Good point regarding the voting age. If it were possible, the voting age for federal elections should be thirty-four, same age required for being president.

  6. But they can go to war and sacrifice their life for your freedom, you piece of sh*t!!
