I-1639 would raise the age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle to 21 years old. It would also expand background checks on these kinds of weapons and require a firearm safety training course within the last five years.

In addition, gun owners would be held accountable if a child or anyone else accesses and uses an insecurely stored firearm to hurt themselves or others.

Coming November 28: Reflections on the Election by Our Own Political Gurus

Political Consultants Cathy Allen (Democrat) and Randy Pebbles ( Republican)  spoke to City Club in February about the effects of social media on elections.  Now they are coming back to answer that question and talk  about what the mid-term elections tell us about the our state and our country, in what way  the new Congress will be different or the same, and what this might portend for 2020.
