So, you can graduate high school, get married, have children, get drafted or sign up for the military, enter into legal contracts, and vote at 18 years of age. HOWEVER, according to the latest from the DemoRats, your brain has not developed enough for you to purchase a AR15?????????? I'll leave it there for now.

How do liberals keep drunk drivers from killing sober drivers? The answer is obvious to them, ban sober drivers from driving.

Mr. Benson, you're conflating politicians with "the government". Politicians are part of the overall government because we allow them, mostly by default or stupidly, to be so.

According to a Newsweek report, the Ulvalde shooter posessed a handgun in addition to the AR15s he had purchased legally. At 18, it was not legal for the Ulvalde shooter to have a handgun. Michael Carneal, the Heath High School shooter, used a .22 cal handgun stolen from a neighbor's garage. He was 14 at the time and killed 3 and injured 5 others. Raising the age to legally purchase a rifle will not stop the school shootings. What will stop them is securing the perimeter of the schools so shooters are denied access. However, stopping school shootings does not forward the liberal agenda of disarming the American public, so the school shootings will continue until parents take action to force local school boards to secure the schools. All the Covid money handed out to schools in 2020 and 2021 and none of it appears to have been used to improve security. It was used to build new gyms and pools, but not to protect the lives of our children. The children were not in the schools and it was the perfect opportunity, a missed opportunity.

In the military you get extensive training on the use of your M-16. At the gunshop, you get a paper receipt. Not a bad law.

Were you in the military? If so, you know the hours of training we received. We were not just handed a rifle and several boxes of ammo.

M16 is a little different than a sporting rifle.

That one skipped my mind. Yup, forgot. You don't even have to be 18 to decide the rest of your life. DemoRats say you can do it in kindergarten

I think this is an apples and oranges kind of comparison, charles.

on the one hand, you are training to go into actual combat. on the other, you're buying a rifle. no more, no less. why would a private sale be any different than a bolt action .22?

or for that matter, a single shot .22?

Does being not a bad law make it a good law? In other words, would you expect this law to be effective at fixing anything?

That same govt had issued me 2 different kinds of belt fed machine guns as personal weapons and used them in combat by the time i was 21. If you cant buy a rifle then you cant join the army. The govt doesnt get to take 17 and 18 and 19 year old kids and do as they wish if they arent considered "adults" by the same group of a holes that are starting the wars. the math dont compute here.

Given that we're back on this particular shooting again, isn't it interesting that with a brand new rifle (probably not cleaned) and multiple brand new mags, this "kid" never had a jam or double feed that took his rifle off line, for at least a while? He went through 2 mags while he was outside for the 5 minutes between when he crashed the truck and before he got in the school through the unsecured door. Maybe a $1,600+ AR doesn't jam or double feed right out of the box, maybe he was just "lucky" or maybe it was a well used Prexz Barry cartel AR that was well broken in...

Then the dust he bag chief of police wouldn’t go inside to smoke the idiot . A teachers husband who is a border patrol agent and a work companion came in and killed the bad guy . That chief of police needs to loose his job along with his fellow officers .

That training involves the function and use of a battle rifle... How to utilize the platform effectively as an instrument of warfare. And you are taught basic rules of safe handling to keep from injuring yourself or others.

None of that training would have prevented or dissuaded this piece of trash from murdering 21 people.

I don't know how he got the handgun. But I am assuming he must've passed the NICS check to acquire the rifle.

The Vegas shooter passed multiple background checks to get his weapons. Spotlessly clean until he flipped his lid.

The shooter in Tulsa passed the NICS check.

Their system has failed multiple times. And they keep telling us with more infringement that they'll get it right.

The "professionals" they admonish us to let handle our safety... They sat on their keisters while this piece of garbage murdered 21. But I'm supposed to willingly turn in my hardware and give them another chance to do nothing?

Do you actually read the drivel you type? Do you apply any critical thinking skills?

In case you haven't noticed, we are on our own. No one is coming to save you. But you go right ahead and keep believing the assurances of a man who doesn't know what day of the week it is. You can turn in your hardware anytime you like... But don't expect me to follow suit.

My 14 year old has his AR in his safe in his bedroom.

It depends on the kid. The age should however stay 18.
