If they can join the military, they should be able to buy a gun, cigarettes and alcohol. Maybe the age should be raised to 21 to join the military, that would make me support the opinion.

Although I've moved out of Baytown I still keep tabs on my old home town. I wasn't sure how to answer 'Would you support or oppose a law that would raise the minimum age for buying an assault rifle from 18 to 21?' The actual correct answer is:

NO ONE should be allowed to buy an assault rifle.

Absolutely raise that age limit. And while we're at it, raise the age limit to join the military, too. No one needs a long gun assault rifle. Period.
