A federal appeals court recently ruled that banning guns for 18-20 year-olds is unconstitutional.
This is a huge win for people who believe in and support the United States Constitution, especially the Second Amendment.
This news hasn’t gotten much play in the liberal media, for reasons which should be obvious.
US Court Rules Banning Guns for Adults 18-to-20 Unconstitutional
A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that regulations setting a minimum age of 21 for handgun purchases from licensed dealers violates the Second American rights of those citizens.
The three-judge panel in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals delivered the ruling in a split vote 2-1, with an appointee of former President Donald Trump writing the majority opinion, arguing the laws relegated “either the Second Amendment or 18- to 20-year-olds to a second-class status,” CNN reported.
“Looking through this historical lens to the text and structure of the Constitution reveals that 18- to 20-year-olds have Second Amendment rights,” Judge Julius N. Richardson wrote. “Virtually every other constitutional right applies whatever the age. And the Second Amendment is no different.”
A George W. Bush appointee, Judge G. Steven Agee, joined Richardson in the majority – a direct case of where political leaningss of members of the judiciary impact interpretation of American law.
This ruling is just and makes perfect sense.
If a person is mature enough to enlist in the U.S. Military at age 18, they are old enough to own a firearm.
Yet another win for our Second Amendment!
The ban on handgun sales to adults under 21 years of age is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
Plenty more unconstitutional gun bans that need to go. Keep at it!https://t.co/RDgb4VASPr

“Our nation’s most cherished constitutional rights vest no later than 18,” Judge Julius Richardson wrote in the decision.
The court applauded Congress's efforts to curb violence, though it insisted the move was a violation of adult gun rights.https://t.co/ubsZIQXD0S

This is a win for freedom. We could use more of those these days.
