i love how a 17-year-old (with proper consent from a guardian) can legally go die for his country, four years before he's allowed to have a damn beer. America really shows its priorities.

I live in Australia, we have strict gun control (no semi automatic, have to go through ******** to get a gun license yadda yadda yadda)
In Australia there are about 250 murders (in total) to 21,000,000 people each year.
In America there are about 17,000 (15,000 being gun related) murders (in total) to 311,000,000 people each year.
So....
Odds of being murdered in America - around 1 in 18,000.
Odds of being murdered with a gun in America - around 1 in 20,000
Odds of being murdered in Australia - around 1 in 84,000


But no no go on, please continue to tell me about how gun control does not work.

a 19 year old is responsible enough to take a person's life, but not to drink

Your average 19 year old isn't a trained soldier, he's a ******* .

Ya, but you see, THOSE 19 year-olds have months of training and discipline. There's a difference.

There's a difference between a 18-19 year old who has been drilling muzzle and trigger control for months, memorized the gun safety rules, had firearm training by professionals in a safe environment, and a 18-19 year old whose firearm training comes from Call of Duty and hip-hop videos.

Theres a huge difference between 19 year old trained and well disciplined soldier and a random 19 year old who obsessed with call of duty...

The police protect his ass. TRAINED soldiers of ALL ages protect his COUNTRY. And no, I don't think trigger happy untrained 19 year olds who have played too much Call of Duty and have something to prove are responsible. Adam Lanza's mother trained him to use a gun because she thought it would give him responsibility.   
   
Not implying all 19 year olds aren't responsible, but rather that they aren't always well.   
   
Ultimately we must ask ourselves: WWBD?   
   
What would Batman do?   
   
I think the answer is obvious

The difference is that a 19-year-old in the Army knows **** about discipline.

Random 19-year-olds are clueless jerkoffs that think playing Counter-Strike makes them masters of armed combat.

18 year olds are old enough to go to war and die, but drinking is out of the question. Gotta love this country.

OKAY, so here's what we do.

We take everybody's guns. Then, we melt them all down. THEN, we forge them into swords, and give everybody in the country one.

You want to kill someone? You'd better be prepared for a serious duel that risks your own ass, because you've gotta get up close and personal. And on the plus side? They look all kinds of badass strapped to ones belt.

They're highly trained to use them. If you ran out onto the street and gave a handgun to some 19 year old kid on the street and said, its yours! He is going to go shoot bottles with it, or stop signs like in superbad. I know I would've. Guns are fun. Unfortunately we aren't too bright of a species individually. We think we can handle responsibility until we have ther esponsibility. There are exceptions to every rule, and comparing 19 year olds who trained for 6 months in the military to 19 year olds who just got out of high school is ridiculous.
