President Trump will buck the NRA with a Sunday night announcement in which he call for raising the minimum purchase age for long guns to 21.
The current minimum age for long gun purchases is 18.
Trump has been vacillating between various pieces of gun-related legislation since the heinous February 14 attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and Fox News reports he is now ready to announce at least four recommendations. The first of these four is raising the minimum purchase age for rifles to 21 and the second is working with the Department of Justice to ban bump stocks, which were not used in the February 14 attack.
He is expected to urge Congress to pass the “Fix NICS” bill, put forward by Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and John Cornyn (R-TX), and to support the STOP School Violence Act.
