    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.

    That much I can agree with.

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

    If you're under 18-21 you shouldn't be hunting alone. Let the adults have the handgun.

    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.

    Using your logic. The UK has less DUI deaths per year than the US because they have a lower per capita ownership of cars, so we need to outlaw cars in the US to prevent DUI deaths.

    Require a weapons course and /or test to obtain as gun permit - you have to do this to get a drivers license?
    Limit the number of weapons to a household to 6

    Strict rules and laws to obtain sellers permits - Already done
    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 is a better age
    15 for FID Card which here in Mass the Police handle those applications
    I see no reason why a 15 year old should be blocked from going turkey hunting with his dad because some nut misused a gun to kill kids.

    So you oppose an 18 year old being able to own and use a gun? Would that apply across the board or is it OK for an 18 year old to carry a gun if it is issued by the military so he can go kill foreigners? Do we need to change the legal age of an adult too? Because if you aren't mature enough to own a gun at 18 then you aren't mature enough to be tried as an adult either.

    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 was gonna say the same thing. The idea that the government forces us to register for selective service at 18 but prevents us from drinking a beer is asinine to me. An 18 year old is capable of carrying an assault rifle, launching a missile and planting a land mine, but they are too irresponsible to drink 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.
