I bought several firearms from individuals when I was 16-17. At least 2 were handguns.

I still have some of them, and deeply regret having sold 3 or 4 of them. So if everyone was like me, I'd say there should be no issue with having driving privilege age match firearm buying age.

Using age as a surrogate for determining if an individual is responsible is not a very good means of doing it. Government tends to use the 'lowest common denominator' theory to decide on things, so if someone aged 19 does something bad, well then, they decide that no one under age 20 can be trusted.

If there is a sense of fairness in laws, then the arguments about military age matching firearm purchasing age is the least one could do.
