"Don't you think young people in their 20s frequently lack the maturity and common sense to be responsible with guns? I didn't say all, but I'm afraid this characterization of your average 20 something young man is true more times than it is false."
As a 23 year old gun owner I feel quite comfortable telling MikeB he's full of shit. I have family members who I 100% do not trust to be responsible with a firearm and that has nothing to do with age. Also, those who make that claim about young gun owners could replace the word "gun" with just about anything. Maybe we just don't have the common sense & sense of responsibility to exercize free speech or vote either. I know they hate the term, but these folks really are bigots.
