Should teen psychos be allowed to buy guns?

Screenshot 2018-02-16 at 08.12.15Teen psychos may soon find it harder to arm themselves. California lawmakers are considering raising the age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21.

The debate over how young is too young to buy a firearm is gaining momentum among federal lawmakers and President Trump according to the Mercury News.

California already outlaws handgun sales to anyone younger than 21, but a teen psycho here can still walk into a gun store and buy a rifle, shotgun and ammunition.

Only Hawaii and Illinois set a minimum age of 21 to buy or possess a rifle or shotgun.

Senators Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., are working on a bill to raise the minimum age across the country to buy rifles to 21. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and Rep. John Faso, R-N.Y., voiced support for the idea since the Florida shooting.

California lawmakers have introduced nearly a dozen new gun control bills, but nothing yet regarding minimum age restrictions. Expect that to change quickly.
