    That retired Prosecutor and Law Professor needs to review his Constitution and all Amendments. Voting age is 18 not 21. That amendment lowered the age of majority to 18 for all citizens. Drinking is not a right.

    The NRA is correct on this. This is an unconstitutional infringement. I don't care for the ban on bump stocks but that will stand if it is severable as will other components of this law. But the age is not constitutional. A state cannot just decide to deny a segment of citizens their rights.

    There will also be many who support leaders who are willing to do something, anything, to reduce the slaughter.

    While a ban on military like weapons has been deemed a permissible Constitutional action under the U.S. Supreme Court 2012 Heller decision, there is some legal question that is unresolved whether or not adults ages 18 to 21 can have their 2nd Amendment Rights restricted like the Florida Legislature and Governor approved recently. Under the Court's free speech decision in Tinker (1969), even high school students were deemed to possess 1st Amendment rights. How restricting young adults 2nd Amendment rights could be Constitutional is questionable. It looks like the U.S. Supreme Court may get its opportunity to further clarify the rights of young adults.

    A real man will stand out from his peers and do what is right!

    I have a newfound respect for the governor of Florida, Rick Scott.
