New Gun Regulations 

On Wednesday, Governor Baldacci signed a bill that bans the sale of firearms to sixteen and seventeen-year-olds.

The law does allow those youths to buy a gun, if a parent or guardian is present.

&quot:Adults should really know when their child is buying a weapon and to know what frame of mind they’re in, and what the weapon is for.&quot: Said the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Representative Margaret Craven. &quot:If it is to hurt themselves or others, some mature adult should know about that.&quot:

The new law does not include handguns. It will go into effect this July.
