    That's not what's happening all. The federal guidelines set a floor, not a mandatory number. It's like alcohol. You can't buy alcohol under age 21. But individual stores/bars can set their limit to 22, 35 or even 50. They just can't set it below 21.

    Similarly, a gun store can set their personal age limit to 21 if they choose, they just can't set it to 17 or less.

    And no, it's not an 18 yo's legal right to own a rifle. Some states have no minimum age for possession, just for sales. And you're equating the right to own a rifle with an obligation that someone sells it to them. No one is obligated to carry firearms for sale. Nor are they obligated to carry every variant of firearm accessory. If they choose to carry firearms or accessories, they are obligated to sell them in a manner that does not contradict federal and state law. And federal and state laws set minimum ages, not mandatory ages.

    The idea of sensible gun laws is a trigger for you, huh? Do you need a safe space?

    And this is WHY I finally decided to be a gun owner. Before it's too late.

    Because you don't like to read articles or comment on the actual subject of a thread?

    Because gun regulation is about to be headed by bankers.

    Do you really not get it? Or just playing dumb?

    Do not negotiate with radicals.

    There is no need to give even an inch.

    Huh?

    The bank will require retail clients to only sell guns if the customer has passed a background check, to restrict sales to people under 21,


    This...right above me....from the article. I bolded it for you. It is not Citis job to determine what age a person can be to buy a firearm

    And they included "high capacity magazines".

    I sincerely hope gun owners put their money where their mouth is and cut Citibank off at the testicles. They are virtue signalling to the wrong group. The SJW/Dem's aren't the ones with $$$.

    that is their terms of service for the clients they'll take on. the others will just have their accounts with another bank.


    it changes no one's ability to buy a gun. it changes no one's ability to sell guns.


    we're zero percent closer to not being able to get guns.

    Maybe banks could stop doing business with people who sell those little torch lighters, rolling papers, or drug paraphenalia. They *MIGHT* be used inappropriately - If lawmakers can't stop this epidemic maybe business can. Considering the opiod problem I don't think children should be able to go into a store and buy a hypodermic needle.

    Also - Pool makers. I really can't see why anyone really needs a pool in their yard. These things are deathtraps for children. Almost HALF of all drowning occur in these watery death holes. And considering statistics indicate kids 15 and younger are 10x+ more likely drown than to be shot I really think Citibank needs to look at this industry a bit more closely. Perhaps only allow retailers to sell pool related supplies to families who do not have any children under the age of 15.

    Oh that's weird..... so it looks like you knew exactly what I was talking about.

    Speaking on Citi: If it changes the ability of someone under 21 from buying a Gun, how can you say "it changes no one's ability to sell guns"

    its not weird at all seeing as at every point i've implied i read the article and you didn't.

    retailers are free to choose their own restrictions past the law, and do. the only change possible is which bank has their account.


    any other lines we need to go over that i can easily show how you were BSing?

    To recap. Citi implements THEIR OWN POLICY ON GUNS.

    1. ME: THIS IS WHY I bought a gun.
    2. YOU: THIS doesn't effect anyone from buying a gun. You didn't read article.
    3.ME: Sure it does, people under 21...
    4. YOU: retailers are free to choose their own restrictions past the law


    If I am LEGALLY able to purchase it based on every existing law...A bank forcing additional regulations is a problem.
