NRA LEGISL ATIVE ACTIVIT Y

Too Young Or Too Old To Own A Gun?
A
common theme among
anti-gun extremists is what we
refer to as the Goldilocks approach
to limiting access to firearms by
law-abiding citizens. Rather than
admitting that the end goal is to disarm
all Americans, those opposed to the

focuses more on who can own firearms.
And we don't mean people with
criminal records.
After this year's horrific tragedy in
Parkland, Fla., age became the new
battle cry for those seeking to limit gun
ownership, with the goal of denying

"Only five states have laws allowing
families to petition a court to
temporarily seize weapons from people
who exhibit dangerous behavior."
Second Amendment create fictional
arguments about why certain types of
firearms, ammunition or accessories
should be eliminated.
Rifles have been called "too powerful,"
"too modifiable," "too accurate," "too
similar to actual military arms," etc.
The latest approach to Goldilocks-style
gun control, though, seems to focus less
on what you can own, and it instead

Second Amendment rights to
18-, 19- and 20-year-olds.
Eighteen-year-olds have not been
prohibited from purchasing and
possessing rifles and shotguns at the
federal level, nor in the vast majority of
states, since the founding of our country.
Nonetheless, because of the violent
acts of one individual, we have seen
an onslaught of legislation across the

country that seeks to raise the minimum
age to buy and/or possess rifles and
shotguns to 21.
But being deemed "too young" to
own firearms isn't the only threat. A new
approach might be beginning to form.
You might soon be deemed "too old."
An article by JoNel Aleccia and
Melissa Bailey, published by Kaiser
Health News (khn) and pbs NewsHour,
has begun making the rounds at a
number of media outlets, such as cnn,
and it discusses the issue of gun owners
who may be suffering from dementia.
Sort of.
Dementia can be a devastating
disorder. It is a category of diseases,
including Alzheimer's, that affects
the brain, and its effect on individuals
varies widely. Of course, discussing
the problem of dementia is a
conversation worth having.
Unfortunately, the khn/pbs article is
riddled with language that sounds
like it came straight from one of the
gun-ban groups being funded by
anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
