TOPEKA Sen. Pat Roberts supports placing an age restriction on the rifle that was used in a Florida school shooting where 17 people died.
The Kansas Republican said he believes Congress is ready to act and expects President Donald Trump to take the lead.
"This is an opportunity, if you look at these youngsters who are so emotionally tied in to this grief of losing their friends but its more than gun control. But I think were ready as a Congress to actually pass something and I think its going to be better background checks. Certainly nobody under 21 should have an AR-15," Roberts told reporters at the Kansas Statehouse.
"I dont know why anybody would want an AR-15 unless theyre going to take one out on the shooting range."
The call for an age restriction may place Roberts in tension with the National Rifle Association.

Even those in the military.....
Another moron who never had a thought a liberal didn’t give him first. Where do they find these sheep?
If it’s an AR-15, shouldn’t it be 15 and over?
Pathetic. I’ll be calling since I’m a Kansan.
Allow 18 year olds to drink. The serve in the military.
so then no one under 21 should be voting right?
No one under 21 should be able to peaceably assemble right?
Does Senator Roberts know that there are thousands of 18 - 20 year olds handling evil black rifles everyday without incident. They are called Soldiers and Marines. Does he want to take their right away to buy an inferior version of the M-16 they are carrying?
Okay, then. No one under 21 gets to vote.
Isn’t drinking age an issue handled by each state?
Banning rifles in Kansas of all places. Soooo out of touch.
I’m generally not adamantly opposed to this but I would also change voting age to 21 as well.
Regardless, the age of a shooter is irrelevant in obtaining guns illegally so this is yet another gun law that punishes law abiding citizens.
Our military hands M-16s and a heck of a lot more to 18 year olds every day of the week.
No one under 21 should be in the military then either.
I’m not interested in your idiotic non-solutions, senator.
Unless they are serving their first 2d or 3d tour in Afghanistan Iraq Korea or SYRIA - right Senator?
Should we be asking 18 yr olds to die for their country, Senator?
Can I have a rifle if it’s painted pink?
So you could be in the US Army carrying an M16, but be unable to own an AR15?.
No one under 21 should vote.
Hunting feral pigs, prairie dogs, coyotes and deer comes to immediate mind, and I live in New Jersey.
Does this guy actually come from a farm state? Has he ever been back there during the last 20 years?
