Last time I checked, you must be 18 to purchase a rifle or a shotgun, and 21 for a handgun. Anyone 18 or older is considered an adult. Our constitution allows for gun ownership so we can defend ourselves or fight against a rogue government. Lawless criminals aside, those of us who own firearms do so responsibly. Automatic weapons are illegal unless you possess special permits. But I digress; the discussion of American law and weapons is for other forums.As a bemused foreigner I find it extraordinary that that same child can have free access to an automatic military assault rifle
This UAS law is crap, and will only stand to hurt aviation. It is already bad enough that ARFs and RTFs dominate the market, and a total tragedy that the youth is appearing to lose interest in aviation. Think "negative feedback loop" effect.
I have already sent my complaint letters off via email.
