Guns for 18-21: How do you feel? (Old Guys Welcome)


#109

To the original question. A person of 18 CAN be drafted, yes, but unless you HAVE served you can’t use that as an argument. I also don’t think a person should be able to vote at 18 unless they have served in the military or some equivalent, where they have actually earned that right. When you are my age (65) you will see the wisdom of that. Rifle ownership at 18 is OK; not handguns. That’s just due to the statistics. Waiting 3 years for that is not enough of a hardship to offset what the statistics tell us. The rifle vs handgun ammo distinction is ridiculous.
