LA: Raising Age to Buy Rifle Shot Down in Louisiana Legislature

ATON ROUGE — One of the first bills to test the Louisiana Legislature's appetite for increasing restrictions on gun ownership was shot down in the Senate here Tuesday.

Senators voted overwhelming against Senate Bill 274 by Sen. Troy Carter, D-New Orleans, that would require someone to be 21 to buy an assault rifle. The vote was 26-9 to kill the bill.
