KY State Rep. Chris Harris Files Legislation Raising Age to Purchase Military-Style Assault Rifle in KY

Kentucky State Representative Chris Harris introduce House Bill 498 on Monday, February 26, 2018, raising the age in Kentucky to purchase military-style assault rifles like the AR-15 from 18 to 21. In his floor remarks, Harris said he was tired of saying prayers after each mass shooting but never taking action. The bill would only raise the age of purchase for military style rifles, and exempts active duty military personnel and law enforcement officers. House Bill 498 is not intended as a bill to ban the rifles or take them away from anyone.
