New York Governor Signs Law Raising Age to Own Semiautomatic Rifle
The age is now set at 21
New Yorkers under age 21 will be prohibited from buying semiautomatic rifles under a new law signed Monday by Gov. Kathy Hochul, making the state among the first to enact a major gun control initiative following a wave of deadly mass shootings.
Hochul, a Democrat, signed 10 public safety-related bills, including one that will require microstamping in new firearms, which could help law enforcement solve gun-related crimes.
Another revised the state's "red flag" law, which allows courts to temporarily take away guns from people who might be a threat to themselves or others.
