    Allows gun dealer or person transferring firearm, ammunition or firearm component at gun show to establish minimum age for purchase of firearms, ammunition or firearm components, provided that minimum age is at least 21 years.

    Raises minimum age at which person may purchase firearm to 21 years of age. Creates exemption from antidiscrimination statute for enforcement of laws governing purchase of firearms by persons under 21 years of age and enforcement of polices that impose age-based restrictions on purchase of firearms, ammunition or firearm components in place of public accommodation.

    Was no Senator willing to go on record as the sponsor of that one? No names attached to it.

    edit: That bill also appears to change the rules for possession of antique firearms - see section 4.

    Likely because BOLI are the ones that had to deal with the blowback on the raise in age to 21 for firearms purchases by some dealers, like BiMart. People filed at least one age discrimination lawsuit as a result. This bill would effectively eliminate that as an option, allowing dealers like BiMart and others to raise the age to 21 with no fear of a discrimination lawsuit.

    "Allows gun dealer or person ~~~to establish minimum age ~~~ provided that minimum age is at least 21 years."

    Interesting wording. Looks like it allows a gun dealer etc. to establish whatever minimum age they wish as long as it's over 21. What age is reasonable to some corporate entities? 25, 30, 50?

    How does this over rule FEDERAL LAW? Age discrimination is a FEDERAL LAW not state. Granted Oregon my have age discrimination as law but its still a FEDERAL LAW.

    If I can choose to not serve a lawful adult (18) why can't I choose to not serve some other group?

    If someone commits a crime and they are over 18, then they are held responsible as an adult.

    An adult is able to vote.

    Driving in this state is legal at 16 years.

    How is it that a 16 year old can be viewed as capable and in control of a full sized vehicle on a public roadway at 65mph, but viewed as incapable of operating a firearm?

    And now we have policy presented at the suggestion of schoolchildren.


    We live in perilous times.

    I believe that federal law doesn't provide much protection for age discrimination when it comes to buyer/seller interactions. Does anybody have specific law on what age related protections exist at federal level that would prevent this type of discrimination from being legal?
