Daily Caller: California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Friday that will ban the sale of shotguns and rifles to those under the age of 21.
It is already illegal to purchase a handgun in California, unless you’re 21 or older, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
The bill was introduced by Democratic state Sen. Anthony Portantino, who said the February mass shooting in Parkland, Fla. gave him the impetus to promote the legislation.
Portantino said in a Friday statement he was “very grateful to Governor Brown for his leadership in signing this important bill.”
The legislation brought swift condemnation from Second Amendment activists at The Firearms Policy Coalition.
“Governor Brown just told millions of people under 21 that they can fight and die for our state and country with machine guns, but they can’t buy a gun for self-defense in their homes,” tweeted spokesman Craig DeLuz. “That’s nuts.” MORE
