Bill Moves In Texas That Would Increase Age To Buy Rifles From 18 To 21


On Monday, the House Committee on Community Safety reported out House Bill 2744, legislation which restricts the Second Amendment rights of young adults aged 18-20 by prohibiting them from purchasing most semi-automatic rifles. At age 18, citizens are eligible to vote, be drafted, serve in the military, serve on a jury, enter into contracts, sue and be sued, get married and own property. Restricting their right to purchase and own firearms is unconstitutional and will not reduce crime.  ​NRA-ILA will report back to you on what actions you can take in opposition to HB 2744 to protect the constitutional rights of adult Texans!
