Or you can come to VT where there is no gun licensing at all and very little in the way of gun laws. Handguns and long guns can be bought starting at age 16 without parental or guardian consent. There is no age requirement for possessing log guns but you have to be 16 to possess a handgun without parental or guardian consent. The Vermont State Constitution of 1793 is even more clear than the 2nd Amendment. Prior to that when it was an independent Republic, the Vermont Constitution of 1777 was similarly very clear on the right to have guns for self defense.
