    California, which is believed to have one of the toughest gun laws in the United States, is going to make it stricter in 2019.

    The state is going to ban anyone under the age of 21 from buying rifles, shotguns and semiautomatic weapons. It is also contemplating a lifetime ban on gun ownership for California residents convicted of serious acts of domestic violence.
