Slippery slope? Maybe, but geez. It is not like they asked for fingerprints, DNA or the serial number of the weapon. Illegal to sell to someone underage. Many places that sell alcohol or tobacco products has a feature that prevents the transaction from being completed unless an appropriate DOB is entered into the system. You may not even realize it is there as they probably have a featue that allows the clerk to enter a random DOB that makes you old enough.
Companies are scared to death of liability. If they sell ammo, guns, alcohol, cigarettes to someone underage, they may get sued. Tort reform is what we need.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
