Bonta Bill Would Raise Purchase Age for Long Guns

Thursday, March 8, 2018

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D- Oakland) wrote new legislation to raise the age to purchase long guns such as rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21. “California already wisely mandates that someone be at least 21 years of age to purchase a handgun,” said Assemblymember Bonta. “It’s time to extend that common-sense law to long guns in order to enhance public safety.” Find out more about Assembly Bill 3 in this Assembly Access video.
