Governor Rick Scott signed SB-7026 yesterday and it is effective right now. The biggest change to the day to day operations will be that the minimum purchase age for all firearms is now 21 years old. The shop’s client base is significantly older than 21 in general. For all of the folks that purchase on-line and transfer weapons into the shop, if you are under 21 years of age, the FDLE Background Check system doesn’t care if you purchased your weapon before today. If you haven’t taken a background check to start the process of taking possession of your weapon as of yesterday (March 9th, 2018), and you are under the age of 21, your weapon will be sent back to it’s point of origin. This is now the law of the land. Everyone has an opinion as to the potential impact that this law will have on the issue of school security. This post isn’t about opinion or store policy. It’s about a change in the State Statute that governs this business.
