    Feel free to direct Anti-Rights individuals and fence-sitters to the quiz.

    I got all of them but one right. Since it was titled as a federal gun law quiz, I wasn't sure if the one about schools and police officers was a federal law or not. It seems like it would have to have been attached to a DoEd bill or something for that to be the case (which is entirely possible). I don't doubt that it exists in every state that way, but just wasn't sure about federal.

    I know one of your questions is incorrect, and I believe another is incorrect as well. I know the age limit of 21 for handguns only applies to dealers, and I believe the 18 limit for long guns only applies to dealers as well. I can legally sell any of my handguns to an 18 year old here in Virginia, as long as he is not a prohibited person (mental defect, felon, under 18, etc. § 18.2-308.2:1.). If you rephrase the question on age to apply to dealers specifically, instead of a blanket prohibition, it would be correct.

    As far as police and schools goes, I know that is wrong. I am not law enforcement, but my VA CHP allows me to carry concealed in my car on school property, as long as I do not leave the vehicle. In Utah, CHPs allow teachers, and possibly anyone else with a CHP, to carry at school. So there is clearly some kind of exception in place in that law somewhere.

    The question refers to selling guns to "children" which is generally understood to be anyone below the age of 18. It is my understanding that it is still illegal to for you to furnish any gun to someone under the age of 18 without parental consent. I think the question is still valid. I'll look into it though.

    Regarding the other one, you are correct. The law is similar here in Florida in that someone with a carry permit may possess a weapon on school property, just not within the school itself. I am altering the question. Can you provide a link so that I can verify the legality of a CHP holder possessing a firearm INSIDE of a school in Utah?

    http://straylight.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/usco
    de18/usc_sec_18_00000922----000-.html

    922(b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver—
    (1) 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;

    So the age limit only applies to dealers. Your state may prohibit it. But federal law doesn't apply to you unless you are licensed.

    I do find it interesting that I can't find the US Code on any government sites. But a Google brings me the entire Code at Cornell University.

    Seems you are right, at least regarding federal law. I have changed the question to make it 100% correct given my knowledge of federal law. Individuals under the age of 18 are still generally considered "prohibited persons", in regard to handguns, except in very specific instances enumerated in the law. Therefore, except for those instances, it is generally illegal for someone under the age of 18 to even possess a handgun.

    I'd still be interested to know if any states allow minors to privately purchase firearms, handguns in particular. Vermont maybe?
