By a 23-10 vote, the California state senate decided to raise the age to purchase rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21.
This is nothing more than feel-good legislation.
From Fox News:
The state senate in California on Tuesday reportedly voted in favor of legislation that would up the legal purchasing age for rifles and shotguns, and would set restrictions on long guns.
The measure, proposed by Democrat Sen. Anthony Portantino of La Canada Flintridge, moves to make 21 the legal age to buy rifles or shotguns, up from 18, and seeks to prevent people from exceeding more than one long gun purchase per month, according to The Associated Press.

More from ABC7:
Republican Sen. Jim Nielsen of Gerber says California should instead target criminal gangs and those with mental disabilities whom he said will obtain the guns no matter the legal limits.
Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods previously announced age limits on gun sales.
The topic has been frequently debated nationwide after a Florida high school shooting that killed 17 people.
Gun control is not a winning issue for Democrats.
Americans will never stand for legislation like this and liberals will be voted out!
