Court upholds ban on handgun sales to people under 21

• Reuters

The United States may ban federally licensed firearms dealers from selling handguns to people under age 21, an appeals court ruled on Thursday, in a defeat for the National Rifle Association.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Houston rejected the NRA's argument that 18- to 20-year-olds had a right to buy the guns under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the equal protection clause of the Fifth Amendment.

They're too 'immature', to 'prone to violence' to own a gun - - - But 18 year olds are 'mature' enough to go to war, to kill, to be driven insane by war, to have their limbs blown off, to be maimed for life, and to die like rabid dogs in deserts and swamps and shitty rice paddies for this pathetic country - - but they can't drink liquor or buy a gun.
