Bill raising gun age limits gets tweaked

1439

Delaware lawmakers tweak a bill that would raise the minimum age to purchase firearms. Originally the bill called for a ban of sales and transfers for people under the age of 21. The replacement bill allows sales to people under 21 if they are a member of the Armed Forces, law enforcement officer, or if the person possesses a concealed carry permit. The new wording also would allow sales of shotguns and muzzle loading rifles to people between the ages of 18-21. The bill is now before the House Administration Committee.
