    Age is a protected class.

    I disagree.

    Do you want to ban semi automatic rifles?

    I really donít care about what DICKís does. I was just responding to a post about not allowing legal, law abiding adults to purchase a firearm.

    I figured you and I would interpret it differently. To me, the 2nd Amendment states that the government cannot tell you that you're not allowed to have guns. It does NOT state that the government can't tell you what type of guns you're allowed to have. Just a difference of opinion.

    I don't necessarily want to ban them, it just needs to be, AT LEAST, more difficult to obtain them.

    Ok......I really do not care about DICKís and their business practice. I was responding to a poster that implied that age limit is not mentioned in the 2A.

    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.
    Your post did not mention anything about private business. You were suggesting restricting law abiding adults from purchasing a fire arm, since the 2A does not mention age.

    Only going to cherry pick one item to ban? What about the ones sold in America that are equally as dangerous?

    FYI the Dicks in the Cincy area has already been doing this for several years. Dicks was just trying to sell a few more soccer balls today.

    Certain bakers weren't given that choice.

    As I said in the other post every thing that only "adults" should be legally allowed to buy should be tied to voting age. Some want to make 16 the legal voting age, fine then 16 year olds are adults, they can join the military, they can but alcohol and they can buy guns.

    Every major township seems to have one, 8-12? They did away with them in 2013.
