I thought 21 was already the law?

It is - 18 USC § 922 (b)(1):

It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver any firearm or ammunition to any individual who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is less than eighteen years of age, and, if the firearm, or ammunition is other than a shotgun or rifle, or ammunition for a shotgun or rifle, to any individual who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is less than twenty-one years of age;


The NRA was challenging that law. They lost.

You can be 18 and a cop, but you can't carry off duty

In Texas and many other states it's legal to own a handgun if you're under 21, you just can't buy one from a FFL. In some states you can even get a CCW at 18.

I would argue the same for alcohol, cigarettes, etc. But, unfortunately, those in charge don't listen to us.
