Old Enough To Die But Not Old Enough To Buy

 

Illinois Lawmakers Declare 18 – 20yr old Citizens Irresponsible

If you are 18 – 20 living in the state of Illinois your elected officials have decided that it is in your best interest for you not to own or possess semi automatic rifles. In addition to stripping you of your second amendment rights they have also created a statutory definition of an “Assault Rifle”. At 18 you are required to register with selective services and wait for your number to be called. You are old enough to be shipped off to war but you are not responsible enough to own even a simple Plinkster according to your lawmakers. No one gets upset when their rights are infringed upon but try and change the smoking age to 21 or the one that will really get people outraged, raise the age of consent to 21 and  forbid the purchase, sale, or possession of pornography by or to anyone under the age of 21. What says you? Or what about the voting age? I believe an uneducated voter is far more dangerous than an irresponsible gun owner.

Without further delay, lets have a look at the votes and the language shall we!
