    Mr. Speaker,

    This bill is laughable. Right now, we need to be having a good conversation about keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them: domestic enemies, criminals, and those with mental handicaps that limit their proper usage of a firearm. The GOP has not even allowed automatic Voter Registration for all 18 year old's. I reject this bill

    Mr. Speaker, 

    In light of this silly bill I move to table this bill until it should be taken up again by two thirds majority of the House

    Mr. Speaker,

    There is nothing 'laughable' or 'silly' about this body giving appropriate consideration to the extent of our rights, freedoms, and responsibilities.  For years we have marveled at the ludicrous nature of our federal laws which hold that a man is old enough to be drafted into war at eighteen, that a free man or woman can volunteer to join the armed forces of their own volition at eighteen years of age, can been entrusted to make rational voting decisions at eighteen, but are unable to legally purchase a beer.  College students across the country have laughed at this, and I have laughed with them, as they routinely say it is common-sense to reduce the drinking age to eighteen.  I agree with that notion which is what leads me to support this bill before us today.

    The right to bear arms is a constitutionally-enumerated right.  That right's applicability to individuals has been upheld by the Supreme Court and is not in question before us today.  It is a constitutionally-protected right and thus enjoys even greater legal protections than our ability to enjoy  beer, wine, whiskey, etc.  What this bill does is simply place handguns on the same legal footing as a rifle or shotgun for the purposes of whom licensed dealers can sell to.  I see no reason why, if a person of eighteen years can legally purchase a shotgun that they should be prohibited from legally purchasing a handgun.

    I yield.
