    3.) I have no problem with 16 year old working in a factory but not 13.
    4.) But I have no problem with 13 year old having their own gun, like I said I had mine at the age of 10.
    5.)But there are a bunch of 21 year and older I sure wouldn't like them having a gun.
    6.)In my world so much depends on the individual and their maturity.
    7.) I know we must have age limits especially when dealing with the law. But I see having different ages when the young are able to attain certain privileges depending on the privilege and in responsibility.
    1.) i might agree depending on the age, for me i dont really see anything that should be allowed to a 13yr old that already isnt, at least of the top of my head
    2.) yes i agree with some stipulation. i have no problem with a PARENT allowing thier 13 year old to do that and it being legal but i would support if John deere said that thier tractor was for 16yrold and up only ridding them of any legality that can be proved to be caused by the incompetence of the user. But if the thing randomly blows up then yes John deere pays.
    3.) this i also agree on, if the company opens thier doors to them and they have parental approval im fine with it as long as the company follows the child labor laws which should also have an OUT from to.

    Meaning that the 16 yr olds job should be in jeopardy if he cant work 40 a week cause he is going to school BUT if he gets home schooled or something and his parents allow him to work 40 they that thier choice.

    4.) this i would need more info to agree on. In general, you own lots of property and your 13 yr old has a rifle, fine. WOuld i ever give a 13 yr old the ablity to open or conceal carry off thier property with no supervision? hellllllll no lol

    5.) agree

    6.) i agree to a degree on this also but the mind of a 13 yr old is not fully developed and supervision of some sort even if minimal is needed, a clear headed, super mature 13yr old today can electrocute himself or run his sister over with the traktor tomorrow

    7.) i can agree with this too

    The 13-year old girls of today are a different breed from those of a few dozen years ago, IMO. I don't know if it's the "Miley Cyrus Syndrome," but they tend to want to copy her, and others like her, so a lot of them dress and use makeup far in advance of their years. When shopping at the mall, it's sometimes difficult to tell how old they really are, and while they appear to be older than 13, they're not mentally grown up yet, by any means, judging from the giggling and other silly things they do. Ironically, in the future, those girls will attempt to look younger than they are, rather than older! The 13-year-old boys still act like the kids they are, though.

    Greetings, American.

    I wasn't talking about carrying an hand gun or getting a concealed carry permit. My dad gave me a .410 shotgun at 10, I still have it 57 years later. We also lived out on a farm and had a good 20 acres or more of woods to hunt in. I was well schooled I the safety of guns by that age and apparently my dad thought mature enough to have one of my own. Times have changed and so too has society. Today I am not sure even at 18 with the concealed carry permit if 21 might not be the better age. That is unless the individual is on the police force or in the military.

    Back when I was young a lot of farm kids quit school at 16 to work full time on the farm or go work in town in a factory or such. Of course back then not that many kids went on to college, at least where I was brought up at. Only the best and brightest or the richest. Tractors back in those days were much smaller, no John Deere for us, just a small Farmall. But it was enough.

    I agree, when it comes to work at 16 it should be left to the kid and/or the parents. The carry permit is 21 years in Georgia too. We recognize PA carry permits and PA recognizes ours.

    I'm not advocating the total shift of age from 18 to 13, but I do think that people are ready for adulthood before 18 regularly.

    ON a side note i think ALL states should be open carry and CWP should be national like a Drivers license, some states are simply infringing on individual rights and freedoms.

    Too bad violating some of these laws are felonies somehow or i think there would be more outright open challenges.

    WIsh people fought more against these state violations, like many are now fighting against SSM bans.

    ok my off topic little rant is over lol

    I don't even think most 18 year olds ought to be able to be adults, they certainly don't act like it. Hell no for 13 year olds.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I googled "13 year old" and this is the image that popped up. You guys really think this kid ought to be walking around downtown with a beer and a pack of smokes? Get real people.
