Circuit Court Rules 18-Year-Olds Can Now Buy Handguns

There has been an ongoing federal ban on selling handguns to anyone under 20. That ban is now lifted: in other words, the Constitution is a little bit more respected in this country once again…and that’s always a good thing!

Judges at the Fourth Circuit US Court of Appeals made the decision recently that stopping 18-to-20-year-old individuals from buying handguns is an illegal rule.

Based on the founding history of America and its Constitution, they came up with a simple conclusion: the Constitution should be upheld and qualified gun buyers should be allowed to buy a handgun, even if they’re only 18.

A Big Step in the Right Direction

The truth is that 2A is getting big wins in our legal system right now. Not only are 2A sanctuary states popping up like crazy around the country, as I wrote even blue states are seeing a huge surge in gun ownership and first-time buyers.

As the judge said in this case opening up handgun sales, the Founders didn’t divide between “community defense” and “individual self- protection,” and neither should gun laws. They often overlap. Defending yourself and defending your community or your liberty can literally be the exact same thing.

In American history, 18-year-olds often served in militias and ported their own weapons to use. When the Second Amendment became law in 1791, militias were already being organized under these rules.

Stopping gun sales to 18-to-20-year-olds was an illegal gun exclusion attempt by the Democrats, and it’s failed. Chalk this up to a win for freedom.

Gun Rights Matter

The simple fact of the matter is that gun rights matter.

You can try to make all the examples you want about irresponsible or reckless 18-year-olds; however, for all those examples, I can tell you hundreds of others about young men and women who were raised right and taught responsible gun use and ownership.

By reversing this federal ban, our legal system has struck a blow for freedom, and this matters deeply. It matters because there’s no reason that someone’s right to purchase a gun should be limited by their age; this is especially true when all of American history shows that people their age were already fighting and arming themselves at this age and younger.

2A Applies to 18-year-olds

The court has spoken and the court is – in my view – correct. American history proves fully that 18-year-olds were covered under the Second Amendment and that they have the right to ban handguns.

If Democrats don’t like it, take it up with the people who wrote our Constitution…or better yet, Democrats can just leave the country and go somewhere that has the kind of gun control they’re hankering for.

Can I recommend Mexico? A corrupt police force, corrupt government, cartel psychopaths, and an unarmed population. Does that sound good? Enjoy.

As for me, I’ll be staying right here in America where we care about freedom and the right to self-defense.

Old enough to serve, old enough to carjack! :)

(Back in the day, the mantra was old enough to serve (in the military), old enough to vote. Which I wholeheartedly agree with.)

Thank God their records are wiped clean once they reach that magical threshold of wisdom.

Democracy just doesn't work if apes are counted as citizens.

Here where I live, there are plenty of 13, 14, 15, year olds who are carrying guns. They’re in gangs. They shoot people all the time. There is no law on the books that prevents anyone of any age from carrying out a murder. Because? Well we have liberalism to thank for all the destruction of what was once an amazing country.

Now that 18 year olds can go out and buy hand guns, I promise that the rate of homicides are definitely going to go up, among a certain ethnic class, and probably to a degree, poor people of a different color.

Seriously though, giving 18 year olds the right to own a handgun is not the worst thing in the world. It’s letting them vote Democrat. That’s the worst thing you can do.

No, the worst thing is letting them design the next version of Windows :)

Not to be taken seriously in any wise, Dak.

Some folks are just completely deficient in sense of humor. : )

When Chicago had their gun registration going (they still do) the City Council passed an ordinance that said if you had a handgun and it was registered you could keep it, but you could not register any new handguns.

The Illinois Supreme Court struck down that law, and rightfully so. ;)

hand guns

My ex partner drilled a couple of numbers off a stainless steel auto pistol.

The guy that was carrying it got busted. The cops could not raise the numbers. So he was charged with defacing a firearm. That is a lot less time than being caught with a hot pistol. ;)
