The NRA filed a lawsuit against Florida in federal court last week the same day that Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation raising the minimum age to buy long guns from 18 to 21. The NRA seeks declaratory and injunctive relief: a declaration that the 18-20 age restriction is unconstitutional under the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the US Constitution. We also note that all 17-20 year-old male citizens are by federal law members of the militia, as are all National Guard members.
