A Texas federal judge overturned the state ban banning people among the 18 and 21 years old to bear arms. This is the first major judicial decision since the Supreme Court first ruled in June that the Second Amendment grants an individual the right to walk around with a weapon in self-defense.
The Supreme Court has suggested that federal judges apply only a historical test in considering arms cases, stating that a rule is constitutional only if similar to those existing in the XVIII century, when the second amendment was ratified. Quoting the opinion of the Supreme Court, the Texan judge Mark Pittman he ruled that there is no historical tradition of banning young people from carrying arms in public, who could be part of the militia at 18-20 years of age. The age limitation only concerns the carrying of weapons because at 18 you can already buy semi-automatic rifles often used in massacres.
