The age of adulthood should be used to determine the minimum age for everything.

Same age for everything.

If age of adulthood is 18; then that's the minimum age to acquire any type of firearm, acquire & consume alcohol, acquire over-the-counter medications, vote, join the Military, be licensed to operate a vehicle, get married, etc.

If they want to increase or decrease the minimum age for one of the those activities, then the minimum age needs to be increased or decreased for all of them.

Your either an adult with all the rights and responsibilites of being an adult or you are not an adult (you're a minor under the care of an adult).

Yup. And the whole premise of lowering the voting age in order to implement gun control sounds like "we need more inexperienced, easily influenced, and stupid voters in order to get gun control, for who else would vote for this drivel?"

If one is too immature to own a firearm..... then one is also too immature to vote. Can’t own a gun till 21, then legal voting age should also be 21. I’m sure that will piss off the millennials

Well said I agree. I think by lowering the voting age to 16 will in effect be giving the parents extra votes. If there are two or three minor voting age children in a household odds are they will vote the way their parents want.

I’ll agree with 16 year olds voting if EVERYONE has to pass a basic IQ test AND provide valid ID before they can vote. It’s not just the age that’s a problem, it’s the stupidity of SO MANY people.

This...but there is the one issue not mentioned here that seems to be the big one.

Taxes...none of the youngin’s pay taxes, or very little. They, therefore, don’t have alot of skin in the game.

Everything, in the end, comes down to money...who’s money. Swaying younger people to vote to get OPM is always going to be easy....that and taking away rights, or some other benefit that they really have not enjoyed yet.

Cannot legally vote for senators, representatives, governor etc..

They lowered the age to 18 to get the kids to vote for the socialist ideas they were being fed in school. Raise it back to 21 so kids have some real life experience before checking the I'll give free stuff to everyone box.

If they want to lower the voting age to 16 then 16 should also be the age that they are charged and prosecuted as adults for crimes committed.
See how they like that.

Set voting age to the age to buy a rifle. That's now 21. Due to the mass programing in the government indoctrination system, I have little faith in most 18 year olds.

Voting age should be 21 with the exception of those who join the military. They should be able to vote at 18. The left can't win with their issues so they have to recruit people who can be easily influenced. They want people who don't have a clue as to what the consequences of their vote will be.

I have a 21 year old nephew who just recently started his 1st job at Burger King. Still living at home. So far, going nowhere in his life. Wants to be a politician. Is a democrat and has already run for a local office. Lost but wants to run for another local office and is being supported by the local democrat party. He asked me if I'd vote for him if I could. I said no, you have no qualifications for that job. Apparently, qualifications are not important to the democrats, as we can all see when you look at Sacramento.

Heavily funded by Power CA. This is their stance:

Our vision for the future:

All who call California home – regardless of citizenship – participate fully in decision-making for a just, safe, and culturally-vibrant state
Power rests with the people, and those with the least economic, socio-cultural and political power have equal say in determining our state’s future
California welcomes and fully embraces all people and our stories in every aspect our state, regardless of migration status, race-ethnicity, systems impact, class, gender, sexuality, disability, or age
Our state centers young people, families and communities of color so California thrives together

This is an another example of people with moronic ideas occupying positions of public authority. It seems to be a growing problem at all levels of government in California.

I agree.
I think 21 should be the age of adulthood.

Watch the movie "Wild in the Streets" (a bit hokey with the music of the time), but it does have a message.

I agree with the OP. You’re either a full adult or not. However, our government has created tiered adulthood to suit their political agenda.

I read somewhere that many gun studies that indicate a large amount of children being killed by guns, classifies people up to the age of 25 as children. If so, just further proof of agenda pushing.

This link says studies classify them as children up to the age of 24:

Agree 100% ^^^^

Too much gerrymandering going on with age limits for this or that.

Hey kids - it must really cheese you off that you can't own a gun but you can vote for gun control and take the guns away from everyone else to make you feel better about it.

Many 18 year olds don’t understand how the world really works, let alone 16. Bringing it back up to 21 would be great! Raising it to 30 would be even better!

We are already a hodgepodge of nonsensical laws around the Age of Majority. At 18 you are considered a legal adult and can enter into contracts. Except you can't drink until you're 21. And you can't buy a pistol until you're 21. But you can have sex at 16...or 17...or 18...it just depends on the state.

I am not in favor of voting at 16 or 17. I'm not even sure I like it at 18 as most 18 year olds are idiots with zero life experience. But there needs to be an Age of Majority. And I think everything should be aligned to that age. The notion that you can be a legal adult but can't buy a handgun to protect yourself and/or your family is just silly.

Now if you want to raise the age to 21, I'm fine with that. But that means you can't vote until 21 too. Which will piss off a lot of 18 year olds. But I'm ok with that.

Even 18 is too young to vote. Those youg'ns have no clue about life. Some young punk who has no job and no life experience is going to vote to raise my taxes? Puh-lease...
