CBS NEWS: Federal court says restrictions on handgun sales to people under 21 are unconstitutional

They stated that no other amendment is made an exception to Americans between 18-21 years of age, so there should be no exception for the second amendment. They noted that Americans 18 years of age were expected to serve in the militia and hold their own weapons. Opponents argue that this is the only amendment that has the possibility of causing harm, so the dangers should always be in consideration. For the full article, click here.
