The left keeps saying they’re not coming after anyone’s gun rights but their actions speak more loudly than their words. You can join the military at age 18 but in California, you now have to be 21 years old to buy a gun.
NBC News reports:
California Gov. Jerry Brown signs bill banning gun sales to people under 21, citing Parkland
Most 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. “I feel it is imperative that California leads when Washington refuses to act.”
This is what the left does. They just keep chipping away at rights, little by little.
