As the debate over gun laws heats up, one Washington gun shop owner is doing more than just talking.
Jason Cazes wants lawmakers to raise the legal age for buying long guns from 18 to 21.
The gun shop owner is taking action. He is no longer selling his long guns to anyone under the age of 21 unless they have military training. "They are not emotionally mature enough to handle it. They have to be 21 to get an AR-15. I’m sorry. I'm putting my business and my livelihood on the line for it," says Cazes.
He says his end goal is to show that guns can be legal as long as no one underage gets their hands on them.
