In a 2-1 decision Tuesday afternoon, the Fourth Circuit Court of appeals struck down the age requirement for purchasing a handgun, saying legal adults have a constitutional right to own a firearm at age 18. Before the ruling, the age requirement to legally own and purchase a firearm was 21.
“Our nation’s most cherished constitutional rights vest no later than 18. And the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms is no different,” Judge Julias Richardson wrote in the opinion.
“I’m grateful the court ruled in our favor, as this will allow for more college-aged students to safely purchase a firearm to defend themselves against criminals, who don’t follow gun laws,” Hirschfeld said. https://t.co/EcoetRlha2
