While the Same Act is a good piece of legislation with the DemocRats in charge of Congress it does not stand a snowballs chance in Hell.
The Second Amendment Mandates Equality Act of 2021 would repeal the federal law that currently prohibits anyone under 21 from purchasing a handgun. It’s co-sponsored by GOP Sens. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, Steve Daines of Montana, Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Mike Braun of Indiana, and Mike Crapo and Jim Risch of Idaho. It was sponsored by by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in the House.
“The Second Amendment is a constitutional right, and does not treat 18-year-olds as second-class adults,” [Wyoming Senator Cynthia] Lummis said in a statement.
“In keeping with the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, the SAME Act 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.”
