handgun purchase minimum age

Post by cvfd21 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:09 am

The legal minimum age to purchase a handgun in the state Mississippi through a private transaction is 18.
The federal law says the same, 18 or older for any firearm purchase through a private transaction.
There is a federal firearm law that makes the minimum age for a ffl dealer to sell a handgun 21 or over.
There is no federal or state law that says you have to be over 21 to own a handgun.

I have been told many times that you must be 21 to buy handguns through private transactions and that you must be 21 to own a handgun and i am tired of arguing about it if someone can prove me wrong on this please send me reference to the law.

and yes i know that you must be 21 to get a firearms permit in Ms but that doesn't mean i cant carry in my home on my property in any motor vehicle my place of business or when engaged in a legit firearms related sport activity.

yes the Youth Handgun Safety act 1994 applies for those under 18
and federal law prohibits ffl dealer from selling handguns to those under 21 but what im referring to in this post is private transactions

Then say what you are referring to up front...Not editing it after the fact....I aint a mind reader Razz

I still wont sell anyone under the age of 21 a handgun (even in a private transaction)...that's MY rule

that's MY rule

Before I get too many flame pm's...

I know ya'll don't give a sh!t about it being my rule OK Razz

Let's just say I happen to agree with the Federal boys on this one..unless you'd had some military training...then I'd rethink it....

Yeah I know the whole argument about being old enough to die you are old enough to buy a handgun...I've heard it all.

blah

Besides...all of you will be 21 before you blink an eye....

ha yeah i know how that is me too.....but i already have plenty of handguns my only purpose for creating this post is to inform people of the law because many are confused about it
and weather or not you decide to sell to someone under 21 is up to you, you can refuse a sell to who ever you want
