Such a controversy subject matter. Regardless of what opinion you have on guns, most people can probably make an objective argument, both pro & con. I asked myself, if this bill stated 10 years of age, would it influence my opinion and the answer was definitely yes. So the next question was ok then...what age is appropriate. Conclusion: I personally don't believe that it is unreasonable to put an age restriction and 16 appears to be fair compromise.
