Federal law shouldn’t prohibit adults who can vote and are between 18 and 20 years old from buying a handgun. Why should a 20 year old mother be denied the right to defend herself and her family with a handgun?
Lowering the federal minimum age to buy a handgun from 21 to 18 years old would increase gun violence. Being eligible to vote at 18 doesn’t mean a person is responsible enough to own a handgun.
