An 18 year old can join the Army and rain down Hellfire missiles from an Apache helicopter on to brown-skinned minorities in some far-flung country but a 21 year old can't own a semi-automatic rifle. if you don't like the laws in America then by all means move to Australia or England or any other crap country you like. We'll hold down the fort here dodging bullets like the wild west thank you very much

You know, as a gun toting Canadian I find it sad that guns are at the center if this issue. I also find it ridiculous that people think buying an AR-15ish at walmart is ok. Don't people just have gunfights in the parking lot? In Vancouver they would, and in London. But they don't, at least not outside of the the US. Believe me! I am perfectly capable of defending my property without the need of a shiny glock or dusty AK. But if I wanted to have one, I could! I would just have to prove to my peers that I was a responsible adult first. The fact that some of my fellow gun owners feel that there special cousin Festus who can't see straight should have a freekin assault rifle makes me.. almost laugh.

Hopefully state governments will follow business' lead on this (and only this issue) and large parts of the country will not make it easy for teens to buy guns.

Good big corporations need to go extinct. All the small family owned American business did.
You can't trust one of these Chineese facade products they sell. It's turning into China here with piss poor products that are usually toxic.

You call this move common sense when any minor with cash can buy whatever weapon they want to do whatever they want, or just steal them from a family member and go.
Which brings me to what the government has really failed us all on... public schools the Department of Education in the first place.
That this should even be a conversation just shows how far we as a country has fallen.
So celebrate that, I guess.

The difference is the support of it.
No one here is claiming that they need to do anything.
