BRITTANY BERNSTEIN - National Review | Published on 8/4/2022
New York’s legislature passed a bill on Thursday to raise the age limit to buy or possess a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21.

The bill, which passed the state senate along party lines in a 43-20 vote and in the state assembly in a 102-47 vote, would also require anyone buying a semi-automatic rifle to obtain a license.
