I think we shouldn't, I personally think that people with major disabilities shouldn't be able to buy firearms because their disability can impair their thinking process.

Where did disabilities come from? Those have nothing to do with the age you buy a gun.

I decided to look up the ages, and it varies based on which state you're referring to. Some states let you get a gun as soon as 14 years old in Montana, and 16 years old in Maine, Alaska, Minnesota and New York. I say, go ahead and make the legal law 18 years to own a gun in all states.

The age limit should be 18, I'm not against that, but I'm against raising it to 21.

So... you agree with me? Guess I won this debate, then.
