Court strikes down rule barring those under 21 from obtaining handguns

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the age restrictions on firearm sales was unconstitutional according to The Blaze

The 2-1 decision out of Richmond, Virginia is in defiance of a long-standing rule that banned firearm dealers from selling to anyone under the age of 21. 

According to a report in the Associated Press, the decision overturned a lower court’s ruling that confirmed the decades-old rule about the age requirements to buy a firearm. 

“Despite the weighty interest in reducing crime and violence, we refuse to relegate either the Second Amendment or 18- to 20-year-olds to a second-class status,” Judge Julius Richardson wrote in the 4th Circuit opinion.

Richardson, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, was part of a three-judge panel that handed down a ruling that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms could well appeal in the near future. 

Richardson was joined in his opinion by Judge G. Stephen Agee who was appointed by former President George W. Bush and stated that one of the key issues affecting their decision is the fact that adults as young as 18 are asked to carry firearms into battle:

“The irony does not escape us that, under the government’s reasoning, the same 18- to 20-year-old men and women we depend on to protect us in the armed forces …” Richardson said. 

The majority opinion went on to say that “… since our Founding been trusted with the most sophisticated weaponry should nonetheless be prevented from purchasing a handgun from a federally licensed dealer for their own protection at home.

“We refuse to accept this conclusion. These men and women who, historically, have served either voluntarily or by conscription may not be read out of ‘the people’ in the Second Amendment.”
