[Ed. – Constitution? What’s that?]
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a slew of gun control measures Friday, including one that raises the age requirement to purchase rifles and shotguns.
California already restricts handgun sales to people 21 and older.
The Firearms Policy Coalition, a gun rights advocacy group, slammed the bill.
“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,” said group spokesman Craig DeLuz. “That’s nuts.”
Democratic state Sen. Anthony Portantino said he was inspired to introduce the bill after February’s high school mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., that resulted in 17 dead.
