Judge Rules Federal Ban on Handgun Sales for 18 to 20-Year-Olds Unconstitutional

We are considered adults at age 18. And yet, the Biden administration believes that doesn’t allow you to be able to purchase firearms.

Thankfully, a federal judge just ruled differently.

If you didn’t know it, Biden and his cohorts are after your freedoms, and your right to keep and bear arms is one of those. One way in which they’ve tried to do this is to ban 18- to 20-year-olds from buying firearms, particularly handguns.

This is precisely what Steven Robert Brown and Benjamin Weekley got in trouble for. Being within the “young adult” age range, the Biden administration believes the pair should not be able to buy handguns for any reason.

Naturally, the pair didn’t agree with this and took the Justice Department to court.

And Judge Thomas Kleeh, appointed by Donald Trump and Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia, just agreed with young men.

According to Kleeh, the Biden administration’s rule is basically unconstitutional as it does not follow “the Nation’s historic tradition of firearm regulation.” Clearly, based on the Second Amendment, both Brown and Weekley were well within their rights to purchase handguns.

Kleeh noted that the precedent for this was set in 2022 by the Supreme Court when they decided that any gun control law in the country must have its roots in the historical tradition of firearms regulation. This one clearly does not.

In fact, for as long as any of us can remember or read about, firearms were actually given out to those even younger than 18. By age 18, history shows that most are old enough to responsibly handle firearms, as is suggested by the fact that this is also the age at which young adults can enter the military, and militias, and be drafted into military service, where they will be given firearms and other weapons.

This means that the young men in question are, in fact, old enough, and since they are law-abiding citizens, they are well within their rights to both purchase and own handguns, despite the Biden administration’s wishes otherwise.

A major win for the Second Amendment…
