my opening!

pulled my shirt back to show off my 9mm Beretta, and offered "or maybe one of these?" more chatting, and I told her that i'd be glad to take her to the range and teach her the basics.

yep, here in NM, people carry concealed pistols, people you don't suspect. in NYC....not so much.

stay tuned.

told her i have pistols and matching ammo.
If the coyotes are that prevalent, she should keep Vinnie on a leash when she walks him. She probably doesn't realize how clever coyotes are at ganging up on a dog. And it's hard to avoid shooting your dog when firing at the coyotes that are tearing him apart.

Question:

Our Constitutional rights are given at birth.
They apply to all US citizens and those here that are not citizens in some cases.
They are God-given and not provided by law, but PROTECTED by law.
Because this New York law required a demand to be met, BEFORE the God-given right was permitted, it was struck down as an infringement.

Based on that, can a 7 year old buy a gun? Serious question. They have the right from birth, and it cannot be infringed.

originally you could vote if you were 21, later changed to 18. so that right has an age limit to it. congress has decided that owning a gun comes at 18 or 21 (rifle or pistol). if you want to challenge that, good luck. we generally treat anyone 18 or over as an adult, able to enter into contracts and liable to the law (not children's court). so i don't see that changing anytime. but you can loan an underage person a gun in some cases, they just can't own it directly.

If they are adults at 18, why do they have to be 21 to drink?

Even the most libertarian minded among us, like me, agree with the fundamental concept of an "age of majority." Minors, by definition, are not adults, and as such, do not enjoy the same rights as adults, also, they receive more protections than adults, all by virtue of their status as minors.

A legitimate argument can be made for what the age of majority should be, but I don't think anyone would argue that there should NOT be an age of majority, unless you're talking about leftists who want to put their little boys in dresses and have them castrated. I mean, there really shouldn't be any age limit on that, of course.

I'm not asking about common sense because that falls into each individuals interpretation of what is common sense. No, I would not give a 5 or 7 year old a gun, BUT in the purist sense of 2A and the Constitution, not allowing it is certainly UNConstitutional.

These are BIRTH rights, not ADULT rights. If the law supports gender choice at 5 years old, then it should ABSOLUTELY support birth right at ANY age.

(I'm not making a case for giving minors weapons)

Because we're fucking stupid...

You can join the military at 18 (17 with your parents signature) and handle multi-million dollar pieces of equipment, fix nuclear weapons and carry a rifle, but you couldn't possibly know how to handle liquor. Dumbest shit ever. You can vote at 18 and that's far more dangerous.

Another thing to think about. The Armed Forces cannot carry personal weapons on a military installation.

Because we raise irresponsible people. Germany and the UK have kids drinking around 16 so by the time they can afford to get a licence they are not idiots.

I live in one of the bastions of Conservatism in Hampton Roads. Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk and Virginia Beach can eat a dick. Richmond also.

Having grown up in Falls Church I'm disgusted by what that area has become. I hope I'm never forced to go back there.
