AG Caldwell

Louisiana opposes gun ban on 18-20 year olds

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has joined attorneys general in 20 other states in signing on to a lawsuit supporting the National Rifle Association’s Supreme Court petition to lift a federal ban on sales of handguns to persons over 18 but under 21.

Assistant AG Patricia Wilton says the case is really all about states’ rights.

The brief, which was originally filed by Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, argues that the law barring those between 18 and 21 from buying handguns is a violation of their 2nd Amendment rights.

Wilton says Louisiana state laws allow persons 18 and older to legally buy pistols, and the federal law violates that as well.
