SB 1100 prohibits anyone younger than 21 from purchasing a long gun, such as a rifle or shotgun, from a licensed firearms dealer.
However, the law includes an exemption for law enforcement officers, members of the military and anyone who possesses a valid, unexpired hunting license.
AB 1968 will prohibit anyone who has been hospitalized more than once in a year for a mental health diagnosis from owning a firearm for the rest of his or her life.
