California governor signs bill raising age limit for purchase of long guns from 18 to 21

Jerry Brown has signed a new law requiring that Californians undergo at least eight hours of training, including live fire exercises, before carrying concealed weapons.
California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a series of gun control bills into law, including one that raises the minimum age from 18 to 21 for buying rifles and shotguns.

The new law, which takes effect Jan. 1, exempts law enforcement, members of the military and people with hunting licenses from the restriction. State law already bans people under 21 from buying handguns.
Among the bills signed Friday by the Democratic governor is one imposing a lifetime ban on purchase of firearms by people convicted of serious domestic violence charges, or with serious mental health problems.
Another will require Californians to undergo at least eight hours of training, including live fire exercises, before carrying concealed weapons.
Brown vetoed one measure that would have limited an individual's purchase to one rifle or shotgun in any 30-day period.
State Sen. Anthony Portantino, a Democrat, who authored the law on raising the age limit for purchases of long guns, said he was motivated by the killing of 17 students and school employees at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February. A 19-year-old former student at the school is accused of using a semiautomatic rifle in the rampage.
"I was determined to help California respond appropriately to the tragic events our country has recently faced on high school campuses,” Portantino said in a statement. “No parent should have to worry that a gun gets in the wrong hands and commits a heinous and violent tragedy on our school campuses.”
In March, Rick Scott, the Republican governor of Florida, signed a bill raising the minimum age for buying long guns in that state from 18 to 21.
The National Rifle Association immediately challenged the move in a federal lawsuit against Florida, saying the age-minimum section of the law violates the second and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution

He failed to keep the guns away from the "gangbangers", I doubt this will do anything but get him a few more boos.

Another infringement on the individuals right to bear arms.
No we shouldn't need licences. That's another chain we wear all too lightly.
Komiefornia is a different country than where Americans live.. I wouldn't set foot in that shithole state for any reason!

Knowing Commie-fornia you need a both parents signature for a hunting license until you are 21 with no exception of one parent is deceased.

Hey Moonbeam, whatever happened to you and Linda Ronstat. She was a hottie in her day.

Why not raise the age for long guns to 199, so nobody in the state can buy one.

There are lots of reasons to visit California, the Redwoods, Sequoias, hotsprings, northern part of the state along the coast, gold country - lots of beauty, but wouldn't want to live there.

Gotta love this line by Portantino; "No parent should have to worry that a gun gets in the wrong hands and COMMITS A HEINOUS AND VIOLENT TRAGEDY on our school campuses." Yep, them guns commit all kinds of violence, all by themselves.

agreed!

close all indoctrination centers otherwise known as schools and provide only internet connection zones along with all levels completed electronically

done all the time currently with persons who don't play nice in the indoctrination centers

There is a Initiative in Washington state being floated that is far more encompassing, I1639. I'm seriously starting to think about becoming an NRA instructor. With all of these neat ideas the states are coming up with they are in a way blindly supporting the NRA.

being serious though, they already do this

the kids go in, get their lessons, go at their own pace, and all subjects are online. To move forward, you have to complete prior sections/subjects.

it is already happening at college level also as we all know.

Most major Universities offer online courses, including advanced degrees, without ever stepping one foot on a campus - and it doesn't have a Phoenix University stigma.

Beensaying that about schools for awhile now. Why are we spending 50 million on a new school plus all the teachers pays and pensions. Do it all online and if someone cant afford a computer and internet then buy them for them. Way cheaper than the 10k a year to send them to a school.

And how many people work at all these schools? Think of the consequences of all those folks on the welfare line.
Never a dull moment...

there IS something positive to be said about all the aspects of having local neighborhood schools

spread the wealth, as a topic, has been abused to the point, we can sometimes forget the social aspects that allow a Republic to thrive

Better that they go on the welfare line or get retrained to do something else rather than all the taxpayers supporting them living their retirement under a bridge. Some of these teachers can still teach online or go on to be babysitters and or tutors for some.

To Teach Is A Gift!

A proper teacher can 'do', perhaps they are a bit older than what it takes to 'do', with regards to what they teach, but, generally, if you find a teacher who 'can't do', well, I'll offer you a case, odds would say, of those who can neither teach nor do
PROPERLY!

to deceive, to malinger, is a disease

most teachers bring gifts, nature allows those who can, generally, the ability to thrive
as they properly teach, they so 'gain', and as such, they 'survive'


er go:
those who'll be 'retiring under a bridge', won't generally be, of those who can properly teach



i'll close with this:
Some Today have possibly walked away from their 'gift', as I'd call it
they're not gone, just disillusioned

I'm counting on the fact, I believe, they'll be back

In fact, some, plenty, are still here, working daily in our public school system
Working through some hellacious set of teaching rules, Common Core and 'diversity' etc
it must be horrendous to be a public school teacher these days, especially for the intelligent teachers

I Pray For Them!

Some of the bigger trucking companies are afilliated with a college that allows the drivers who are on the road weeks at a time to take online/correspondence courses.

I’ve run into a few drivers over the years who’ve earned a history, sociology, etc.. type degree and never spent more than a few days on a campus.

Buck,

No problem with what you state, just am of the opinion that the system no longer allows them to flourish,

the bureaucracy has taken over the field,

when you speak to teachers, and they actually let their guard down, the pain is evident in their discussions. While those that are just playing along and collecting a check have a quite different view of things.

Leaving a question, can the school system be saved or is it time to review options?

My wife’s aunt was a school teacher and taught the young, elementary aged kids. Loved teaching and loved the kids. The system, the bureaucrats ruined it for her, imposing rules and new “teaching” methodologies that she knew would fail the kids. Taking children who were obviously special needs kids and mainstreaming them into classrooms with mentally normal kids. She said some of these kids did not even know where they were, but were put into her classroom, taking valuable teaching and learning time away from the regular students. They drove her out of a profession she loved and she talked about it, almost with tears in her eyes. Idiot bureaucrats, fools ruining the system for no productive reason.

The productive reason is obvious (for their side). Just look at the idiocy that accepts 57 genders as fact...

And the mentation of our kids blown to hell with self mastrubatory stroking...

School suck. It's what they do. Worse than organized religion

It's proof we need to raise the voting age back to 30.

I'll compromise. When retired Army and Marine DIs are the teachers from sea to shining sea then we can let the children vote again

When the millenials take power (and they will, sooner rather than later), they're going to come full bore for the 2A.
