U.S. Judge Throws Out Texas Gun Ban For Young Adults After Supreme Court Ruling:

A federal judge in Texas threw out the state’s ban on people between 18 and 20 years old from carrying handguns on Thursday in what appears to be the first major judicial decision since a landmark ruling on weapons rights by the U.S. Supreme Court in June.

The challenge to the Texas statute that bans young adults not in active military service from having handguns in public was filed in 2021 by the Firearms Policy Coalition, a gun-owners’ rights group.

I (with my employer matching component) donate over $1,000/year to Firearms Policy Coalition Action Foundation. These donations are tax deductible.

There are other cases triggered by the Bruen decision working their way through the courts. The most important being the challenges to “assault weapons” and magazine sizes. I expect these will take several months if not years to actually bear results that make a difference. But getting the ban on 18 year-old people from carrying guns is a good start.

  1. It is pretty useless to have guns if we can’t take them anywhere. The priority has got to be eliminating gun free zones, whether public or private.

  2. So if the courts have ruled that a civil right can’t be denied to adults because of age, what does that do to the federal law preventing handgun sales to adults less than 21 years old? Would the same logic apply there as applies to this case?

  3. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing such useful info, and again awesome site!
