(WTRF)–In response to the tragic mass shootings across the country, the House passed a gun control bill on Wednesday. 

The Protect Our Kids Act raises the age limit for purchasing a semi-automatic rifle as well as the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 15 rounds.  

U.S. House Passes Gun Control Bill

7News heard from US Congressman Bill Johnson and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown.  

Senator Brown says an 18-year-old should not be able to walk in on his Birthday and to purchase a firearm.  

We’ve got to do something. Our congress has to break its addiction to the gun lobby campaign contributions and do the right thing to make sure that that 18-year-olds can’t get access to these kinds of guns with no background checks and no waiting periods.


Congressman Johnson says we send 18-year-olds to war and around the country they are trialed as an adult but yet we tell them they can’t own a firearm until they are 21.  

They’re focused on a repealing the Second Amendment inch by inch and holding the American people hostage to their rights to keep and bear arms.


He says that is a violation of the second amendment.
