1968 Law Banning Handgun Sales to Those Under 21 Thrown Out

At least temporarily.


WOW, look how far we’ve slid down the slope.
18YO? Just to get into a site that talks about guns? Does USCCA ask this Question?

That’s funny. Wasn’t there a big uproar, just recently, when they tried to mandate the same thing for internet porn sites? We can validate age for firearm discussions, but don’t stop little Joey from watching :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: with a :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: in her :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: so he can take that idea to school.

I forgot what the hell I was going to say because of that and almost lost a perfectly chilled 'Diet coke !


When I was draft age, in the Stone Age, the debate was whether 18 year olds, who the government was drafting, could vote in elections for the old men who sent them to Vietnam. Now, 18 year olds are considered too immature to buy a firearm.

I am of a mind that if our children are old enough at 18 to vote, drive a car without a learner’s permit, can live by themselves, get married, have children of their own AND ENLIST, they should have the right to go out and buy whatever weapon they want. This law should be eradicated.

My 18 yo Son will very soon be out of the nest, going off to Dallas to live with his Girl Friend while she is in school there. He has his plan all set and he will work his plan. He is currently in school to become a certified welder and has a job already set up when he graduates and they get to Dallas. I am sending them off with the shotgun of his choice. Whatever scattergun he wants, that is what I will gift to him. I will go into debt to keep them safe up in the Big D, and it pisses me off that he cannot buy and own a sidearm until he turns 21.

While he is still here at home, he can utilize any of our handguns he chooses ON OUR PROPERTY. He cannot go out into the world with a pistol. Doesn’t make sense.


I feel as though my 18 year old daughter is more than capable of being responsible with her own firearm, and I would want her to have one and be able to carry it everywhere. She’s the kind of person that needs it most- young, female and working late at night, yet even gun friendly Florida won’t let her carry until she’s 21. That’s wrong.


My Daughter went to College in Orlando for a while getting her Art Degree. There had been several complaints about girls being attacked on campus and campus security couldn’t catch the guy doing it. Had him on video, but he they could not identify him. I sent her a Hello Kitty key ring, the one with the big pointy ears and loops to put over her fingers. I told her to put ONLY her car key on the ring. All her other keys went in her backpack.

She was coming out of a late class one night, headed to her car, backpack over her shoulders, Hello Kitty in her right hand, He jumped her from behind another vehicle and grabbed her. She hit him five times with the key ring before he got the clue and let go, running away like a scared little B****. She contacted campus security, they contacted local ER’s and they found him. No more attacks.

Covid-19 hit the following year and she came home, finished her degree online. She is up in Minnesota chasing a Journalism degree now.
