If I was 17 and living under my folks roof, driving a car they owned (you can't own a car at 17), and otherwise needing to go by their wishes, then that I believe that is showing respect to get their blessing for something as important as carrying a firearm.
Wait you can't own a car at 17? Even if you've moved out of your parents house, have a job and are living on your own? if you cant legally own a car at 17 why are kids able to drive at 17? that makes no sense to me... kinda like if you can join the military at 18 and shoot guns and die for your country why cant you buy a gun? or buy alcohol? (not necessarily in that order haha.)
That was news to me too. I bought my first car at 16. My parent's knew about the entire thing. Heck my father was the one that found the car for me, but he didn't sign anything.
I owned the car for several months before my father finally gave his permission for me to get my license (as opposed to my learner's permit). I didn't really NEED his permission, but it made life much easier. Both of my parents were working, so my aunt went with me to take the driving test.
Can anyone imagine a Millennial taking his driving test in a 55 Chevy with three-on-the-tree?
