Gun licence rights for legal adults 18 years or older
In the United States, a person is legally considered an adult at the age of 18, meaning that they are able to vote, own property, join the military, and be tried as adults in a court of law. However, they are not able to purchase firearm licences and concealed carry permits. Not only is this a matter of defending second amendment rights to bear arms, but it is also a matter of providing 18 year olds with a means of self defence.
I,_______________, believe that legal adults of 18 years or older should be able to purchase firearms and firearm licences for their own defense and the defence of others, provided they can prove the attendence and passing of an approved course on firearms safety.
These people are considered, by federal law, to be adults, and yet they are unable to own a firearms licence or a concealed carry permit, despite being in one of the most targeted age brackets for rape, murder, kidnapping, and theft.
