Washington state raises age for assault rifle purchases to 21

Washington state on Tuesday officially banned anyone under age 21 from buying semi-automatic assault rifles.

The ballot initiative, which passed with 59 percent support of voters in November, sought to implement a series of gun control reforms, The Associated Press reported.

The ballot initiative aims to limit gun violence by strengthening background checks for those buying assault rifles, upping the age limit to purchase such firearms and requiring safe storage for all guns.

Washington residents will now have to pass through FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System before purchasing long guns.
