Coming October 24: Guns and Pollution
The Pros and Cons of I-1639 and 1631
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.
