- Bill: DE HB 330 - Age Ban on 2A Rights
- Position: Strongly Oppose
- Sponsor: Rep. Peter Schwartzkopf (D-14)
HB 330 would raise the age limit from 18 to 21 for purchasing firearms and ammunition.
Such a ban places blame on a person's age rather than the misuse of an inanimate object when an individual commits a crime. It fails to address the root of the problem, which lies within the person themself, and it punishes law-abiding citizens in the meantime.
It would inhibit the constitutional rights of young adults that are allowed to vote, enter into contracts, and serve in the military.
What other constitutional right could be limited and segmented among free and legal adults over 18? The right to vote? Free speech? Protest? Assembly? Due Process? Speedy Trials? Worship? Equal protection? Privacy? Marriage? Movement? The answer of course, is none. And any type of proposed ban can and should be quickly rejected.
