Seven states currently impose an age limit of 21-years-old in order to purchase any firearm.
Colorado was to be the eight state, however, a federal judge has at least temporarily blocked the law. This latest push by gun control advocates will do nothing to stop criminals or deranged killers, but the fight is continuing across the country regardless.
California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, and Vermont are the current states with such an age limit being imposed. You will notice that one state, Florida, is the only Republican-led state that is on the list thanks to weak-kneed Republican lawmakers caving to the gun grabbers once again.
Judge Philip Brimmer of Colorado has temporarily blocked the measure in Colorado, after Rocky Mountain Gun Owners filed suit against the new law, calling it a violation of the 2nd Amendment.
It is anticipated that several challenges to these age restrictions will eventually make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where gun owners can hopefully find some reprieve.
It’s ironic that gun control advocates, most of them far-left extremists, want to limit your ability to defend yourself until you are at least 21. However, if a minor wants to cut off their genitals, or if they want to take life-altering drugs at 6-years-old, they have no problems with that.
