There are 18 year olds sporting automatic weapons already…they’re in the army, marine corps etcI’d be okay with raising the age to 21 for semi automatic purchases. Don’t think enough would support higher that. I know there are parents out there with 18 year old kids that have taught respect when handling a gun but there are too many losers out there that learned about guns from Call of Duty.
I support raising the age to buy semis to 21, but also raising the age for all adult decisions to 21. If we do it for guns we do it for all adult decisions including voting. If we need ID for these adult decisions m, we need them for all like voting.
1. Hits harder along with greater range . I use one for home defense with a suppressor. So I have a short barreled AR that is actually more maneuverable around my house than my suppressed pistol .Question for those who have a ton of experience with guns, a question about key differences between semi auto handguns and the AR15. From distance, i would assume that the AR15 is easier to hit a target, am i correc in that? however, assuming both the AR 15 and and handgun both have the same magazine capacity, what are the advantages of an AR15 as opposed to the handgun, besides larger rounds being fired.
The real beauty of the AR platform is simple. It fits, can be adjusted to shooter. It's incredibly reliable, it almost never fails. I can take mine, throw it in a pond, come back a week later, and it will shoot just fine. Little kick, so anyone can shoot it. It's drawback? It doesn't fit in a purse for a female.
A strap that I could wrap around my supporting arm.I know most of the libs would prefer a complete ban on all weapons.
Beyond current laws on the books, I could be talked into requiring anyone under 21 that is currently legally allowed to purchase a gun, to require parental permission to purchase a gun. A lot of these school shootings are by "kids" under 21. Requiring parental sign-off would at least put one road block up for "pre-adult" purchases by immature individuals.
I would not accept limits on the types of guns any more than we currently have. I don't think that is the problem. The problem is keeping guns out of the hands of those with disturbed minds. And you can't rely on society as a whole to catch those individuals. They have to be caught by those close to them, their parents. And requiring parental approval for a 19 yr old to purchase a gun is an easy tool for a parent to be able to exercise.
And to be honest, a 19 yr old should have to take an approved of civics course, with a passing grade, in order to be issued a voter registration card. Too many idiotic immature idealists with no concept of reality voting.
Raise the voting age to 21. Update a national voting data base with ID requirements also.When liberals agree to limits on abortion I'll agree to restrictions on guns.
Mirror France's abortion law and we'll go with age restrictions, waiting period, more in-depth background checks, required classes, etc. But until then I'm not agreeing to anything as they continue to try to broaden abortion rights then blame the Republicans that Roe will be overturned. It's comical so fight fire with fire.
