But now your argument is less about age and more about training.

Someone who only learns how to care for a gun off of YouTube and through video games is going to be equally dangerous with it at 21 as at 18. Don't you think? Heck, that person would be a problem even if they were 35.

So we need to be clear on this: are you complaining about irresponsibility in general or age related inability?

One of the only posts in this thread to give an inch of compromise, and it is much needed.



So would that be a good compromise? Age to purchase weapon is 18, but you must provide a firearms safety training document? I know a lot of 2nd Amendment people will shout "SHALL NOT INFRINGE", but at the same time I'm willing to compromise if the compromise makes damn sense. Common sense should tell everyone that you should have some form of formal training before handling and operating something that can cause serious injury or death.


Let's face it at the end of it all determined assailants will find a way to do harm to people, by vehicular homicide, home made bombs Boston marathon style, or obtaining guns illegally.

And guns like these aren't even regulated



Or there is this

You didn't answer the question though.

Look, I'm about as gun toting, right leaning, I took an oath to defend the constitution when I was 18 and still keep to that oath as they come.

Many like we would simply yell "WILL NOT INFRINGE", but there are many like me that are willing to listen.

However, it's a two way street.

As several have comment though out ATS: It's those of us that care about the 2nd Amendment who are sacrificing our rights. Those who keep asking us to "compromise" seem to not understand their not giving up something they care about, but are asking those of us who do, to do so.

I'm sure this would be a whole other discussion if we started asking people to "compromise" on their 1st amendment....or their 4th, or several others I could name.

So are we here to work something out? Or are we just here to see that it's Your Way or the Highway?
