The 11th circuit unanimously says that Florida’s law restricting gun sales to those older than 21 is consistent with the US historical tradition of restrictions. When I get time, I would love to see the rationale behind that.
Keep a couple of things in mind:
- A Republican controlled legislature and governor passed the law saying that 18-20 year olds are second class citizens with no Second Amendment rights.
- In 2018, when the law was passed, Republicans had a 79-41 majority in the Florida House, and a 25-15 majority in the Florida Senate. Rick Scott was the Governor.
- The 11th circuit is made up of 2 Democrat and 1 Republican judges. The decision was unanimous.
Don’t for one second think that the Republicans are your friends.
