This bill — the Raise the Age Act — would raise the age limit for purchasing a semi-automatic rifle that has or accepts a magazine with a capacity of more than five rounds from 18 to 21 years of age. This would apply to rifles which use centerfire ammunition (which means that the bullet’s primer is located in the center of the cartridge), so rimfire semi-automatic rifles wouldn’t be affected. Active duty members of the military and full-time law enforcement officers who are authorized to carry firearms in the course of their official duties would be exempt from this ban.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation would be required to provide a report to congressional judiciary committees on the protocols and procedures for information sharing between its public access line and field offices. The report would include recommendations for improving the protocols and procedures to improve information sharing.
