    This isn't infringing on anyone's ability to buy a weapon.

    There is that study that says adolescence doesn’t end until 26 now. Maybe we do need to move everything to 21.

    Itís fair for those kids to protest, they got to see first hand the problems we have in this country with mental health, guns, and school safety.

    Nah, it's fine, so long as you don't give them a Busch Light at their send off party.


    I've never understood how it is acceptable to send an 18 year old off risking their life to do battle, but heaven help us if they drink a couple cold ones.

    There are plenty of reasons. Hunting, target practice, home defense, and the fact that the 2nd amendment says it is your right.

    So you are okay with a 10 year old buying a gun? If you say no aren't you infringing then?

    Dick's (and Field and Stream) aren't the federal government. They can make rules for themselves. If they want to set an age limit for selling sweatshirts in their stores, they can do that.

    They can go to Joe's Gun Shack and buy their weapon. The Constitution does not guarantee anyone the right to buy a gun at Dick's.

No one that is in favor of common sense gun laws think that it is going to completely stop these things from happening. Like I've said in other threads, the reality is we'll never be able to prevent them from happening. But we can make strides to make it more difficult, and that's what some of us, at least, are saying. Opposing any kind of gun reform whatsoever is pretty selfish.
    I don't consider banning these rifles "common sense" I hate that term. Most people who use it probably don't even know what AR in AR-15 means.

    Think the person who said that was referring to the 18-21 yr old debate.

    Heck, anyone can buy a gun at any age on a Facebook yard sale group and meet at a seedy truck stop motel at an exit on the WK. Dick's is just saying at their establishment, they don't sell to folks under 21

    Could it be discrimination?

    The problem with "common sense" laws is who decides what is common sense.

    I don't see how, but even if it was, there's nothing that can be done about it. Companies are allowed to discriminate as long as it's not against a protected class.
