RULING DENIES 18-YEAR-OLDS SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

by martin | Oct 05, 2011
Last week a federal judge in the Northern District of Texas ruled that adults aged 18 to 20 do not have an individual constitutional right under the Second Amendment to purchase, after a background check, a handgun or handgun ammunition from a federally licensed firearms retailer. This despite the fact that 18-year-olds can exercise every other individual right guaranteed in the Constitution. Adults aged 18 and over can speak and worship freely, vote, marry and start a family, enter into contracts and serve in the military where they are trusted to use fully automatic firearms. This case will now be appealed to the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.—Courtesy National Shooting Sports Foundation
