What could possibly go wrong?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Monday said that she will reintroduce legislation to increase the minimum age to buy assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in the wake of a shooting in California.

“It’s common sense to prevent the sale of deadly assault weapons to individuals who aren’t even allowed to buy a beer. This isn’t a fix-all bill, but it closes a gaping loophole in federal gun safety laws, and I hope the Senate will act on it swiftly,” Feinstein said in a statement.

Feinstein added that “if you’re too young to purchase a handgun, you shouldn’t be able to buy an assault rifle.”
