Here's the e-mail I read during this morning's show (during a conversation about how some are pushing for 16-year-olds to vote in the wake of the Florida school shooting) that received so much positive feedback from KFAB Nation:
Let me get this straight...lots of people are proposing that the sale of "assault rifles" should not be allowed to those under 25, or at least 21, because they supposedly are not responsible enough to have them. But at the same time, we should let them vote at 16 because they are responsible enough to decide who should represent them. I am pretty sure more damage has been done to this country by people voting foolishly then private ownership of rifles ever has.
Regardless, the progressive movement needs to make up their minds about what constitutes adulthood in this country. If you can't rent a car until 25, can stay on your parent's insurance until you are 26, can't drink until you are 21, lets just round up and say you can't do any of those things, including voting until you are 26. If we as a country can't trust you with a rifle or a beer, I don't want you in the voting booth either.
George Washington was a surveyor in the wilderness of colonial American at 16. I enlisted in the Army at 17 (my folks had to cosign) and I was honorably discharged with sergeant stripes on my shoulder before I was 21. The way this country seems to look at young people now is absolutely sickening and I am only in my early 30's; no wonder these students are going to DC to "beg for their lives" as they put it-- society is telling them they are nothing but vulnerable and not capable of forging their own path, so no wonder they resort to begging. This doesn't bode well for our Republic.
