As a teenager in America, why is it easier for me to buy a gun than a pack of cigarettes?

    Because guns don't kill people, but somehow cigarettes do.

    Its not.... Go to any of your local sporting goods stores and try to buy a gun. Let us know why they turned you down Kiddo

    Why buy either?  In both cases, whether cigarettes or a gun:  If it is smoking, the damage has been done.

    Is it, tho?  I don't thinks so.  I'm a teenager and I find it way easier to buy cigs. I buy em all the time.  Every day. I don't even know how I'd even start to buy a gun.

    cigarettes kill and long term cost of care, are much more. Seems to make sense that we are finally starting to do something about them at the states level, in some states. They should be outright banned, and I'm  smoker.

    Because you hang out with criminals. Someone should notify the police.

    Guns have the world's best lobbying group.

    Because law makers are scared shitless by gun supporting lobbyists, the same way that many are scared shitless by Trump criticizing them.

    Some gun shops will even give you one a year early. A store near me has an owner who is ok with things sliding. It’s July 8th but your 18th birthday is October 8th? Here 3 months won’t hurt. Legend
