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.
