    I bet its not. Show me where it says so. The premis of the question is not about possession. Getting a pistol out of Dads safe to stop a threat is not possession.

    In Florida, as an example, an 18 year old can buy a handgun from a private party completely lawfully.

    In CT one can not buy a handgun unless they have a CCW permit, which obviously requires 21 y/o. This includes private handgun sales. To privately sell a handgun in CT buyer and the seller have to call the state and provide both CCW ID numbers, and get a transaction number to put on the sale form. Then a copy is provided to the buyer, buyer and seller's PD, and the seller has to keep a copy for 20 years.

    So I know that my son can not privately purchase a handgun in CT, that is out. Still searching the statutes to see if there is anything about being in possession of one while within the home.

    Thanks for all of the help everyone.

    Found this:

    Sec. 29-37i. (Formerly Sec. 29-37c). Responsibilities re storage of loaded firearms with respect to minors. No person shall store or keep any loaded firearm on any premises under his control if he knows or reasonably should know that a minor is likely to gain access to the firearm without the permission of the parent or guardian of the minor unless such person (1) keeps the firearm in a securely locked box or other container or in a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure or (2) carries the firearm on his person or within such close proximity thereto that he can readily retrieve and use it as if he carried it on his person. For the purposes of this section, "minor" means any person under the age of sixteen years.

    You cannot carry it unless you are an agent of the government,
    Not in Indiana, you can get a CCW at 18.

    If its used for SD, in your home in particular, it isnt going to matter at all his age. He didnt purchase, carry in public or even posses. You, an adult did all that. I wouldnt worry about it.
    You have to read the entire post... Indiana is a exception, there are a few others like that if I remember correctly.

    As I said, that's not the case in Indiana.

    Depends on your state's law. Some you can buy a handgun until 21 but can have and use at 18.

    Here in Vermont, a 16 year old can purchase a handgun and carry it. A minor under 16 can possess a handgun with parental permission.

    Your argument that someone under 21 can indeed posses a handgun in CT?

    I would say that it states the exact opposite. I am up for a little enlightenment this evening though.....

    OK...I'll be happy too. I'm not saying he can posses under 21, I dont know what CT says. I do know that in the case given by the OP, the 19 year old is not possessing the gun. He is using it, sure, but thats not the same as possession.
