" 'I believe that the law should be changed,' said Michel, adding that the current system for issuing permits is 'arbitrary.' "
"Michel explained that Minnesota already has a concealed carry law, and that that law allows permit holders to carry a handgun on school property. In addition, the present minimum age for acquiring a permit is 18, which Michel would like to see changed to 21, he said."
|So, a marine can be issued a fully-automatic M16 at 18 years to defend this half-wit's freedom of speech. But if this same kid were a civilian, no matter how qualified, he'd have to wait until he's 21? Why not 25, or 35, or 65? Or better yet let's not allow anyone to have weapons?
