    What else is new ? We disallow them to drink, surely they shouldn't have access to handguns.

    I'm old enough to remember when drinking age went from 18 to 21 and the way it happened in MA was that they phased it in over 3 years. Basically if you were old enough to drink, your right was not taken away, but those who were 17 had their bar admission moved out of reach every year until they turned 21. I was in that group. I tought that drinking age should have been 18 back then, and I maintain that same opinion today.

    How does it make sense to try someone as an adult, allow the to vote and yet forbid them from consuming alcohol?
    Also, the way the federal government did this stinks to high heaven - they forced the states to pass laws to increase the drinking age or they would not receive federal funds. It all goes back to the 10th and how the federal government has overstepped its constitutional authority by a mile.

    The states should have turned it down. Lousiana and Idaho turned down the money, and stayed 18 until the Feds put pressure on in other ways. You can prohibit taking slaves all you want, but there's just no way to prevent people from selling themselves into slavery.
