    Post Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals: No to Under 21

    An appeals court on Thursday upheld a federal law that prohibits people under the age of 21 from purchasing handguns from dealers, rejecting the first challenge to the age rule since the Supreme Court recognized an individual’s right to keep and bear arms.

    In a 3-0 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit held that the age restriction, which dates back to 1968, was “consistent with a longstanding tradition of targeting select groups’ ability to access and to use arms for the sake of public safety.”

    The Fifth Circuit ruling affirmed a decision last year by a federal district judge in Lubbock, Texas.

    Not that I expected anything else, but I was hopeful. Being 19, I would really like to see this go somewhere.
