    Mo just passed- formerly 21, now 19. Of course, Gov. Jay Nixon initially vetoed.

    "The bill was originally vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon in July 2014. It passed in the Senate on a straight party-line vote of 23-8, but passed the House by a bipartisan vote of 117-39."

Imagine a 19 year old soldier who is been in combat protecting ALL of us coming home on leave and being told he(she) cant carry a gun because he(she) isnt old enough. If you are 18 you should be able to get a CCW and if you are irresponsible with the gun pay the price. By the way I am 55.
    Couldn't agree more!

    I know some 30,40 & 50 year old men that aren't mature or intelligent enough to own a gun little lone carry one. Heck, it concerns me that some people on this very forum are allowed to carry a firearm. I also know some 14yr old kids that I wouldn't mind at all if they carried a firearm. (My son is one of them.)

    I myself started carrying at 16 and didn't stop until the CCW laws made it illegal. In my view, you just can't make blanket statements like 18yr old "adults" aren't mature enough. If they are considered "mature" enough to fight & DIE for you & me, they should be considered old enough to carry a firearm to protect their family.

  4. So, in states where the age limit to carry a firearm is 18....just where is all this blood running in the streets and where are all of their problems manifiesting themselves in reality? Hmmm.... how about some facts to back up those that don't want 18 year olds to carry just because they were not responsible enough at 18 to carry themselves?
