Newsweek poll floats gun bans for senior citizens

Last week, when reporting on the state of Tennessee’s decision to stop defending its ban on concealed carry for adults under the age of 21, I wrote that “given the fact that the suspects in the Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay shootings were in their 70s and 60s, respectively, I wonder if we’ll see gun prohibitionists try to bar all senior citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights as well. According to the anti-gun crowd, adults can be too young to own a gun, after all, so why wouldn’t they also contend that we age out of our right to keep and bear arms when we’re eligible for a Social Security check?”

Well, we haven’t seen legislation to that effect yet, but Newsweek has actually conducted a poll on the idea, so maybe we’re not far away.
