I am saying these same people will tell these children that their opinion is not valid due to age or being manipulated but will argue for these same children to have guns, even though they consider their opinions invalid.

So how does that work, you're too young to have an opinion about gun control because of your age but here have one..even though we consider your mindset to be too young to fully comprehend what owning a gun means?



They aren't too young to have an opinion, and censorship is never right.

But if you're going to have an opinion, be ready to have it criticized.

I question the sanity and maturity of countless posters on a variety of issues.

It's because I am right and everyone else is wrong.

Everything is going so well, right? Why should we try something different?

Different isn't always better.

Yup, you've nailed it. You're old enough to enter combat and kill another human with a fully automatic assault rifle in the military at 18, but can't drink until 21?

Our society is a mess. There are not enough adjectives to make sense of it all, heh.

The Constitution doesn't mention age limitations.

How do you know that? How can you be so sure that applies in this case? Are you opposed to experiments, and examining actual results, because you find the status quo is so satisfactory?

I think there might be evidence in comparative studies with other countries, you know, statistics and all those annoying details, that indicate different IS better sometimes. I guess we could examine what we both mean by "different", in this scenario, but I assume you know I mean fewer deadly assaults in public venues.

Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.

Tell us where this utopia is.
