Should people under 18 be allowed to purchase guns without permission from their guardian?

It would depend on the maturity of the child. I know kids who were 9 (my cousins) who handled guns and knew they were for hunting and hunting only. but if your kid is mentally ill. absolutely not.

Their guardian is responsible for them, their safety, and their actions. They probably shouldn't be allowed to purchase anything without permission.

No, it's in another poll, but that's a common sense exception I'd make based on demonstrable benefit. Same for a bicycle helmet, for example, if the parent didn't feel it necessary. Just pointing out parents are responsible and should pay attention.

How can I be responsible if I don't know what medications my child is on?

Ask her? I'm not sure how it works for routine birth control, but once the kid reaches the age of consent, it should no longer be up to the parent any more than the consent is. Emergency contraception is just that - there should be no barriers.

How so? When we say "kids" we're talking birth to age eighteen, but there are ages between those where they are automatically allowed by society to make increasingly challenging decisions. Doesn't change that the parents remain responsible.

You cannot buy a gun under 18 so there is no need for permission: YOU CANNOT

Legally, you can't buy a gun. Illegally though, you can do anything.

I'm 14 and live in ^ Colorado . It's not legal but it's super easy for me to buy guns weed property alcohol etc... Just cause it's illegal doesn't mean it's gonna stop anything. And too many people assume that because if my age I must be a thug and

Dragon- I'm also curious where you could have a stable, responsible job at your age.

Family business in HVAC. Programming and virus removal. One that I'm not willing to speak about here cause it's illegal. And finally I get on computer networks, like schools and stores etc. and show them their weak spots and get paid to fix them. And

So only "very little people" under 18 should be allowed without consent? You're such a heightist!! :-)

No. The difference being, guns are prescribed by a doctor & don't fight/prevent any disease.

I think a lot of places you can buy long guns at 17. You should move down south MJ.

I think minors can buy rifles here in NE. But I'm not a minor, so I haven't really looked into it.

I used to live in Texas for about 8 years, curt- San Antonio is pretty liberal as Texas goes, but still comfortably conservative compared to most of the rest of the country.
We'd still like to live there, but wanted to be closer to family.

I think any smaller town 30-60 miles outside a big city in Texas would be fine. There were several smaller towns outside of San Antonio we really liked. Good communities. Hill country would be ideal.
