    Speak Up! - View Question #19194

    printer friendly version

    Question: Who can own a gun or weapon?


    Generally speaking, anything that disqualifies you as a voter or a juror, such as conviction of a felony, also legally disqualifies you as a gun owner. This is no coincidence – these three rights and duties are historically and philosophically related.
    People prohibited from possessing a firearm also include any person who:

    • Has been found to be a danger to himself or others.
    • Has been convicted of a felony in another state.
    • Is serving a term of probation for a conviction for a domestic violence offense (ARS §13-3101 (6)).

    And, a minor may not possess, carry or be in control of a firearm when unaccompanied by an adult (ARS §13-3111 (A)).

    I think 18 is thye right age for people to own any type of firearms. Unfortunatly in todays society you have to be 21 to buy a handgun. This is mainly because criminals tend to use handguns. Witch is wrong because a criminal doesn't care about what age you have to be to have a gun. So the only people your hurting are the people that fallow the laws.
