Liberty Nation: This may come as a surprise to some, but California is finally following Vermont in raising the gun purchasing age to 21. That the Golden State is moving forward with such an anti-Second Amendment law, of course, should surprise no one. The shocker is that Vermont beat them to it.
Monkey See, Monkey Do
As previously reported on Liberty Nation, Vermont Governor Phil Scott – a Republican who seems to have been confused by the letters R and D and chose the wrong one – signed into law three gun control bills. One of them raised the legal purchase age of rifles and shotguns to 21.
On Tuesday, May 29, the California Senate voted 23-10 in favor of their own bill to raise the gun buying age. The bill, SB1100, also limits the number of guns any one person can purchase to one per month. It isn’t law quite yet – but that it will succeed seems a foregone conclusion. This is California, after all, and the most surprising thing about this story is that the Golden State wasn’t the first in the Union to achieve this “common sense” reform. more here
