Colorado Law That Bans Gun Sales To Adults 18-20 Blocked


The 44-page temporary restraining order halts the effective date of Senate Bill 23-169. The bill was passed earlier this year by the Democrat-controlled Colorado General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis, a Dem who was elected last year with the assistance of a $2.7 million campaign push by the Everytown anti-gun group. 

The law increases the threshold age to legally purchase a firearm in the Centennial State from 18 to 21, with narrow exceptions for those who are active-duty military or certified law enforcement. The lawsuit, brought by two adults aged 18-20 allied with the pro-2A Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group, challenged the constitutionality of the measure, arguing it infringed on the right to keep and bear arms.

Banning Long Guns From Young Adults Violates Public Accommodation

From Reason:

Oregon is one of the states that bans retailers from discriminating based on age against customers age 18 and above. (Some states don’t have such rules, or have an age 21 cutoff.) The Oregon statute says it generally applies to any person who is “of age,” which appears to mean 18, the age of majority in Oregon, at least for those products that are legal to sell to 18-to-20-year-olds (as long guns are in Oregon). Indeed, the statute specifically mentions alcohol and marijuana sellers for special treatment, but makes no such special provision for gun sellers
