The state Senate in California passed legislation on Tuesday that will raise the legal purchasing age for rifles and shotguns as well as impose more stringent restrictions on other long guns, according to Fox News.
Democrat state Sen. Anthony Portantino, the leader of the measure, praised the state Senate for infringing on the Second Amendment, saying, “If D.C. won’t, California will.” Liberal lawmakers can’t wait to step over dead bodies and exploit tragic shootings to shred the Constitution with unholy glee.
Portantino’s bill will raise the legal age to purchase rifles, shotguns, and all other long guns from 18 to 21 years old. It will also aim to prevent people from buying more than one gun per month.
If signed into law, which is more than likely will be soon, no one can purchase a gun if they are under 21 years old and cannot buy more than one firearm per month. The state is also trying to ban bump stocks, certain magazines, and place restrictions on purchasing bullets.
The 23-10 vote in favor of the legislation means the bill will now move to the state Assembly, where it is a few more steps away from being signed into law by outgoing Democrat Mayor Jerry Brown. Brown, who is not seeking re-election this year, is undoubtedly ramping up efforts to defy President Donald Trump and erode as much of the Second Amendment as he can.
Following the state Senate approving the chilling measure, Portantino tweeted, “Good news #SB1100 to raise gun purchase age to 21 & limit gun sales to 1 per month passed the #StateSenate – if DC won’t act CALIFORNIA will.”

California’s latest move to erase the Second Amendment from the Constitution comes as democrats are ramping up national pressure to outright ban ‘assault rifles’ and raise the age to legally purchase firearms.
As reported by Conservative Daily Post, democrats have been exploiting the tragic shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida in February for cheap political points. After 17 innocent people were killed by a deranged gunman, democrats have been relentlessly calling for gun control measures. Liberals refuse to admit the FBI has admitted it missed several warnings and credible tips about the shooting leading up to the shooting.
Like Portantino, democrats aren’t interested in having an open, honest conversation about violence.
The Left would rather outright ban all firearms in America and disarm the people than admit it takes a psychopath to kill innocent people, not the gun.
This measure will undoubtedly restrict just about all gun rights afforded to California citizens, and it sets a chillingly low standard for the state to confiscate weapons.
This is another scathing attempt to infringe on Americans right to bear arms, and many worry these measures could spread to other states across the country.
