Rep. Dent supports raising age requirement to purchase rifles

Rep. Charlie Dent announced his co-sponsorship of legislation to raise the age requirement for those who wish to purchase semi-automatic rifles. 

The bipartisan bill led by Representatives Anthony G. Brown and Brian Fitzpatrick changes the age required to purchase these rifles from 18-years-old to 21-years-old.

"I am pleased to join my Pennsylvania colleague to support common sense policy that would raise the legal age to purchase semiautomatic rifles to 21, the same age for pistols," said Dent in a news release.
