Discussion Topic: Should 20-Year-Olds Need Permission To Own Guns?

Of course not, right. Yet they do in Illinois, according to this article from The Volokh Conspiracy, posted on the NRA's website:

_Federal law makes it harder for 18-to-20-year-olds to get handguns, and some states prohibit it outright; yet nearly all states at least allow 18-to-20-year-olds to have long guns.

Except, it turns out, for Illinois, where state law bars 18-to-20-year-olds from possessing any gun -- including a stun gun -- unless they (1) have a parent or legal guardian's written consent, (2) haven't been convicted of any misdemeanor other than a traffic offense, and (3) the consenting parent or guardian isn't himself barred from owning a gun._
