You know, Most 18 year olds shouldn’t vote anyway. They’re pretty much still young and stupid and vote on emotion rather than logic. They do have soft heads that absorb information and maybe gun training at a young age would help. I dunno.
Perhaps, but we still allow people their age to go off into war, to train lethal weapons there and then go off to kill and die for the Grand Old Flag. Vietnam was before my time, but that was how things worked, was it not, conscription of teenagers and everything? So then, the Democrats might say they are too immature to join, or that we have to "protect" them, and then we'd have to reassess and restructure our entire military, with people 18-24 unable to legally join their ranks also, which would have a huge impact. 25-year-olds are still quite young, I guess, compared to older folks, but they are arguably somewhat past their prime years. That might also affect our military advantage against countries such as China and Russia, who do widely use young soldiers in their huge armies.
But, yes, I agree, I think after all these shocking deaths, it is obvious that America's young population is in a spiritual crisis. And it saddens me so much that we cannot seem to find an easy way to help heal their broken souls. Yet, was this society's fault, or was this their own responsibility?
You see how difficult this is? Changing anything right now could easily trigger, impact and affect a hundred other things - for better or worse.
P.S. Wow! The website suddenly changed its old design. Why was this so, what do most people here feel about this change?
