Question of the Day

Feb 19, 2018

On Friday we asked: It turns out that in Florida, you only need to be 18 years old to own an AR-15. But must be how old to legally purchase a handgun?

Answer: You have to be 21 to legally purchase a handgun.

Congrats to Alexandra Svokos, first to tweet the correct answer, although Lorraine Berry points out, “As someone who lives here, I can tell you that handguns are given out at birth. In my town, there’s a combination bar/shooting range. Enough said.”

Your question of the day for today is…Who was the first (and only) U.S. president to have earned a Ph.D.?
