Glad to hear a 20 year old in Oregon is suing both Dick's Sporting goods and Walmart over the stores' new policy of refusing to sell ANY gun to people under 21.

He tried to buy a 22 rifle ( primarily used for squirrel hunting) and was turned down at both places.
He is suing based on age discrimination ( yes, the liberal state of Oregon has discrimination laws against just about everything including age discrimination )

A law professor at UALR stated the young man has a good argument.

Mass shooting. Outrage. Promises to do do things. Nothing done. Another mass shooting.
Rinse and repeat.
