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As you note, 27870 controls long guns until then, but after Jan 1 2014 is no longer in effect.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 [27870] 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2014, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted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
that date.
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.
The Legislature is in recess. We're immune from most further mischief until the next session begins, late December 2017.

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
