I am a 19 year old female and have been researching court cases and legislation over the 2nd amendment for the past few days and have only grown more frustrated with everything. I have been shooting guns for years and now that I am about to be on my own I would like to have the liberty of defending myself if needed, but I don't. If 18-20 year olds are allowed to posses a pistol in Texas, why are they not able to obtain a license to responsibly carry it? What constitutional evidence is there to support the infringement of bearing arms for law abiding citizens of that age group? I know the NRA challenged the restriction on the purchase of handguns for adults 18-20 in Jennings v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the judge decided in favor of the federal government. In a later case Jennings v. McCraw, they challenged the ban on permits for adults under 21 and still didn't succeed. I want to know the evidence behind the ruling that bans 18-20 year olds from obtaining a license and how that doesn't violate the rights given by the 2nd amendment.
