Lawsuit filed to change age for gun buy

A West Texas teenager is challenging the federal age limit for buying handguns.

The lawsuit would lower the age limit for a concealed handgun license from 21 to 18. The National Rifle Association is supporting this lawsuit, but other gun owners have their reservations.

The Brady Center to prevent gun violence is against changing the law, saying it would be a threat to public safety. The NRA said if people are old enough to go to war, they should be old enough to buy a handgun.

It’s a debate that will now be argued in a courtroom.
