sure they can they got deep pockets
Add to list of places NOT to do business
Pretty soon....only registered dealers.

If you are too young to be trusted with a gun, you are too young to be trusted with a vote.
>> If a state says you can buy this at age 18, can a business change it to any arbitrary age it feels like?

Yes, they can. I’m fully supportive of raising the firearms purchase age.

I was just in one couple hours ago they dint have what they said they did online no one had the answer for me
Or to carry a gun into battle, apparently.
Maybe in California, not in the vast majority of states.
Stephen Paddock was what..65 years old and he killed 58 people..so what next, will they raise the limit to only people over 70 owning guns
Nope, you mean some (a very few young people) are not ready to handle certain things
How can 18 yo’s serve in the military?
Id feel a lot safer being armed shopping at my wal-mart
Because they are getting trained.
We need to arm fetuses
People are not allowed to buy alcohol and cigarettes until theyre 21.
Young people are not ready to handle certain things."
