Raise the legal age to buy a gun to 25

Raise the legal age to buy a gun to 25

An 18 year old is still a child. It is a proven fact that our brains are still developing well into our 20’s. I urge you to take a small step in the direction of curbing mass shootings, by raising the legal age limit of purchasing firearms from 18 to 25. No civilian 18 year old has any use of an automatic weapon. Not ONE reason, except to kill something or someone. Please make
it harder for these kids to buy firearms and pass this law. Its a small step in the right direction.

Why is this important?

Think back to when you were 18, 19, even 21, did you have need for a automatic rifle? Or even a handgun? So, why would we sell guns to 18 year olds? With no training, little background info, and zero questioning, we let a child buy weapons that kill. Are you comfortable with this? Please help raise this ridiculous legal age limit to something other than 18.
