According to President Trump’s most recent Tweetstorm, the CIC is more-than-a-little willing to support a federal law raising the minimum age for a legal long gun purchase to qualified buyers over the age of 18. Because, and this is just a wild guess . . .
the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School spree killer was under 21.
What sense does that make?
Would Nikolas Cruz have abandoned his plan to attack his former school and slaughter innocent students if he’d been unable to legally purchase an AR15 from a federal firearms licensee? That seems dangerously naive.
Speaking of naive . . .
I’ve heard gun control advocates argue that potential long gun buyers younger than 21 aren’t mature enough to purchase a long gun. Their brains aren’t fully formed. They’re naive. Lack impulse control. Etc.
Are you picking up what they’re putting down? Or is this just another attempt to nibble away at Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms that will no effect on criminal firearms use?
