    Good thing human history didn't take your advice, particularly when the average life span was about 25-30 years old. Did their brains function like children too? Pretty impressive those pyramids being build by kids.

    Or is it possible we're making bullshit excuses for allowing today's young adults to remain children?

    Hmm, methinks the latter.

    Do you read much on USMB? I don't but, the little I do read on here lead me to think the U.S. allows anyone who can get away with it to remain puerile well past young-adulthood.

    Voting, driving, buying alcohol, etc. are not in the same class as gun ownership.

    Privileges may be regulated (yes, voting is a privilege, whatever the snowflakes might say). Rights are innate and not negotiable.

    Yes, let's keep treating people like children even longer. That's been working out great so far.

    No we weren't

    I was allowed to drink at 18. We were far from mature. I would see at least one kid killed a year from drunk or excessively reckless driving.....hardly see that anymore
