    People younger than age 21 have Second Amendment right to buy semi-automatic rifles,

    Out of California. I wonder if they also cite to the US Code's Militia Act- that provides an age.

    People younger than age 21 have Second Amendment right to buy semi-automatic rifles, appeals court says

    California’s ban on the purchase of semi-automatic rifles by most people younger than age 21 violates their Second Amendment rights, a federal appeals court has ruled.

    In a May 11 decision, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco reversed a federal judge who had upheld the law.


    “America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army,” wrote Judge Ryan D. Nelson in his majority opinion.


    “Today, we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms,” Nelson wrote.

    Why a youngster would need a semi automatic rifle is beyond me. Guns and the second amendment, which was written in a different time and a different mindset than today, demonstrates humans are slow learners and kinda stupid. Just sayin....

    Expect an en banc session to uphold the ban. This decision was made by a three judge panel. Yes, it's a small victory, but I doubt it will persist.

    This isn't about youngsters dip$#@!, this is about legal adults. I'm sure you didn't do any plinking with a 22 semi-automatic rifle as a child, but most normal people did.

    Since when is a "right" a "need". Your right to free speech doesn't mean you need to criticize that politician - but you certainly have the right.
