It is more that people are more impulsive until they hit their early to mid 20s. That said, I'd rather see the age be 18 with no age on possession. Your parents think you are responsible enough to possess a gun at 7, that's on them.

I also think your parents should be legally responsible for you to, so if they made a bad choice, they share any punishment/blame for the consequences. Since the consequences are exceedingly rare, seems like most parents make the right choice.

Ding ding ding. Absurd that we have laws that are only applicable between 18 and 21.

And still everyone follows these laws and police enforce these laws, yet when we talk about gun bans we hear no comply. So far, there is alot of compliance in the realm of things that are unconstitutional. Is it because "it doesn't effect me" ?

Not pointing at you, just raising the question.

I always hear talk of
1. police won't follow unconstitutional laws on the whole
2. the public talking about how they won't comply
but
then I see stuff like this and police enforce and the public complies.
where is "the line"
where police won't enforce and the public won't comply?

I ask that last question because it's out there, but not near it yet. Due to the boiling frog type of attack, the "normal" for where that line happens to lay is gradually moved further and further back as people get used to the encroachment.

Just putting it out there as an observation.

Since the time it takes one of these cases to make it to the highest court is longer than the time it takes someone to age from 18 to 21 will the cases become moot on the day the person filing the case becomes 21 and there is no chance of the issue ever being herd?

The lead Plaintiff is currently over 21yo , but has an 18yo co-Plaintiff .

*****************************

I'm sure that ire was raised about this back in '68 , along with the myriad other problems with GCA68 . But for every one under 69yo, this state of affairs has been "normal" their entire adult lives . I don't imeadately have the number on top of my head , but significant number of states have 21yo under state law .

The harm occurred when the lead plaintiff was under 21. No time machine in use yet.
