And if he was 21, what would you do next? Propose a 22yo age limit?

Now you can see why my last question to you was so important and not a non-sequitur by any means.

So this recent Florida school shooting would not have happened if the shooter could not legally buy a gun?

Yes.

Still don't see the point. Proper reporting of violent behavior would have done the exact same.

Is this the new mother-ship talking point? A 21 year old age. That applies to handguns. Still far and away the leading murder weapon.

Please explain why the law in all 50 states doesn't believe a person is mature enough to buy alcohol until 21, yet in many states a "child" under 21 can legally purchase a long gun?

But doesn't it seem like common sense to extend that age requirement to long guns?

I first fired a .22 rifle when I was 7, my dad and uncle were cops who took me target shooting. I had no problem with the proper safe use of a gun at that age. I doubt any 7 year old can handle drinking alcohol.

There are more guns than people in this country. What is your suggestion for fixing the problem?

And still no one is addressing the real problem:

No family structure, no moral foundation, no community involvement = a breeding ground of further mass murders whether with guns or any other weaponry.
