Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) introduced H.R. 2890, also known as the "Second Amendment For Every Registrable Voter Act" (SAFER Voter Act). The SAFER Voter Act would repeal the federal prohibition that prevents voting-age adults, ages 18 to 20, from purchasing a handgun.

Rep. Massie, in discussing his bill, stated, “18, 19, and 20-year-olds are considered adults and can vote on important public policy issues. They can also form business contracts, get married, and serve in the military. As adults, these Americans should not be deprived of basic constitutional rights."

A companion bill (S. 1373) was also filed in the U.S. Senate by Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY). Senator Lummis stated, “In keeping with the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, the legislation would overturn our current restrictive anti-handgun statute and ensure equal treatment under law for adults under 21. Ultimately, if we trust 18-year-olds enough to defend our country and to choose our elected officials, we should trust them enough to purchase a handgun.”
