In the age of Biden, federal courts have been leading the way in defending our freedoms.
As Democrats try to ram their socialist agenda through D.C., courts have been handing Americans win after win.
We’ve heard about federal courts blocking Biden’s race-based agenda. And the Supreme Court has slammed the breaks on plenty of leftist schemes.
Now, an appeals court of out Virginia just knocked down a long-standing law. And it will grant rights to millions of Americans.
From NY Post:
A 53-year-old law preventing federally licensed firearms dealers from selling handguns or handgun ammunition to adults under the age of 21 is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday…
“In the law, a line must sometimes be drawn. But there must be a reason why constitutional rights cannot be enjoyed until a certain age. Our nation’s most cherished constitutional rights vest no later than 18. And the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms is no different.”
Why It’s Important:
A federal appeals court in Richmond, VA decided that a law that only allows 21-year-olds and older to buy guns is unconstitutional.
And the opinion was led by a Trump-appointed judge. No surprise there!
They ruled that all legal adults, which include those 18 and up, can buy firearms and ammo from licensed firearms dealers.
The judges made a compelling case. Why should the government restrict rights to Americans, simply based on age?
Why should an 18-year-old be denied access to firearms, just because they are three years too young?
According to the government, 18 is the age one is considered an adult. Shouldn’t that mean they can purchase a firearm?
Keep in mind that 18-year-olds can serve in the Armed Forces and vote in elections.
These days, it seems Democrats are trying their best to restrict the 2nd Amendment. They continue to push for radical new gun control laws that make it harder for Americans to purchase or own firearms.
But again and again, we are seeing courts and state governments striking back. This is one of many recent wins for proponents of the 2nd Amendment.
Don’t be surprised if Democrats try to challenge this decision.
Do you agree with the court’s decision to let 18-year-olds buy firearms?
