I'm split on this issue. I support the 2nd amendment, but it's logical to wait until age 18 to phrase a firearm. And not that this only applies to those under 16. 16 and 17 year olds would still be allowed to purchase "assault weapons", just not anyone 15 or younger. I oppose the part of the bill that bans those under 16 from using assault weapons. If proper adult supervision is provided and all safety precautions are followed, it is a great idea to allow young people to become acquainted with these items so they know how to be safe around them and they have an appreciation for their destructiveness.
