21 is even better
but when it comes to family's that hunt, I have no issue with a kid using a firearm safely.

I have no problem with minors hunting and using a rifle. There is no need for them to be waving a handgun around. There should be a bonafide legal age of 18 or 21 for ownership of a handgun, no exceptions.

having ahand gun as backup when hunting is a good plan (well depending on what you hunt)

I would disagree, some kids are responsible enough and some families need them to hunt
but, I do get what you are saying and agree on average no one under 21 should have a handgun

I hate to revive a dead thread, but I just finally got to read this and felt the need to respond to a few comments.
Ban high capacity clips - Already done
Set tough guidelines at the federal level for penalties for violators - Already done (unless your name is Eric Holder, then you get a free pass by the president)
Require a weapons course and /or test to obtain as gun permit - Already done
Ban sales of ammo on the internet - Why? Is ammo bought on the internet more deadly?
Ban assault such as the AR15's and Buswacker - Does what a gun looks like make it deadlier?
Limit the amount of ammo to be purchased by a private individual - Again, why? Is a person who has 200 bullets less deadly than one who has 500?
Limit the number of weapons to a household to 6 - Why? A single person can only use one at a time. What is the point?

18-21 was a range, so no, I'm not opposed to a legal adult owning a firearm. In fact, the only reasoniI added the "-21" was because that's the "everything is okay to do everywhere now" age. Really, I should have just put 18.
I am opposed to being allowed to die "for your country" before you're allowed to have a beer.

I'm going to add a couple things and I'm done. Somewhere between 85-95% of crimes involving a gun are committed with stolen guns. I believe there should be a law that gun owners need to have their weapon(s) secured in some type of safe if they are not at home. To believe if there was a law prohibiting guns criminals would swayed to turn in guns they have in their possession would be foolish.
