Oct. 24, 2018: Guns and Pollution


The Pros and Cons of I-1639 and 1631

Initiative I-1639

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.

This measure would charge pollution fees on sources of greenhouse gas pollutants and use the revenue to reduce pollution, promote clean energy, and address climate impacts, under oversight of a public board.
