I remember when the bill was filed back in December 2007 to allow gun store personnel 18 to 20 to handle handguns, then about three weeks ago it was decided to let it apply to all 18 year olds. There are already 33 states that allow 18 year olds to own handguns.
I guess I'm a law nerd, I sit up at night looking over all the newest legislation, so I probably see things that haven't made the news yet.
There is some pretty odd stuff that comes up about all kinds of things, alot of it never makes it through committees.
I also agree with 'XDinSC', juvenile records should be made available for gun checks, at least until a person is old enough to have some kind of track record. At 18 or even 21 your juvenile record is very important in establishing your character.
