NRA-ILA :: NRA CHALLENGES CONSTITUTIONALITY OF FEDERAL HANDGUN BAN FOR LAW ABIDING 18-20 YEAR OLDS

does anyone have any updated information on this or did the fight get vetoed? i just saw this and was wondering if they have updated it. i also seen on the same website that in illinois no one under 18 can posses a handgun, meaning 18 and older. hmmmmm

The lawsuit is working it's way thru the court- here is docket schedule-
•09/08/2010 - Complaint filed by plaintiff
•12/22/2010 - Defendant's MTD
•04/06/2011 - Defendant's MSJ due
•05/18/2011 - Plaintiff's Cross-motion due

FWIW- FEDERAL law forbids the sale of a handgun or handgun ammo BY A FEDERALLY LICENSED DEALER to persons under 21. Fed law does not apply to a sale by a private citizen to another citizen of the same state. State law applies. In a large number of states, the minimum age for unsupervised possession of a handgun is 18. (Yes, there are exceptions in the law- ranching, written permission of parents, on own property, etc).

Remmy- I feel your pain (Gee, who said that?) When I was 20, I was an Army 1LT. Controlled enough firepower to remove large parts of a small city- but could not go to a store and buy a freaking box of .45 ammo to get in a little extra practice. I have a 14 yr old granddaughter that has been my shooting partner for 4 years- and to be legal, I have to have written permission from her mom in my wallet.

Hang in there- better days are coming.
