Yes, it is, I'm pretty sure. The question was about 2014.
it seems that after Jan 1, 2014
As you note, 27870 controls long guns until then, but after Jan 1 2014 is no longer in effect.
(c) This section  shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2014, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2014, deletes or extends
The lack of age limit in 27870 is extinguished with the section.
In 2014, 27875 is amended to affect 'any firearm' rather than 'handgun' as it covers now, and (e) has the age limit that never applied before to long guns.

until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.

- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.
