Insanity, or Incredible Lack of Critical Thinking

Posted By on April 17, 2018

So Washington, DC Council is considering, and apparently has majority support for, lowering the voting age to 16.

USA Today: “Washington, D.C., may allow 16-year-olds to vote for president in the 2020 election”

According to the sponsor of the proposal, Democrat Charles Allen from Ward 6, the legislation was inspired by the high schoolers who recently protested Congress for more so-called “gun control” measures.

Among the various proposals from this group of teenagers is one that would raise the age to legally purchase a gun to 21. Based on my own conversations with various young people on this topic, I’m told, by the teenagers themselves, their “brains are just not developed enough” by age 18.

But according to members of the Washington, DC Council, even at 16 they should be allowed to vote and influence public policy.

This is just insanity.
