There’s a lot we’ve learned since the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., but what we’re interested in learning more about has mostly to do with the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Michael Moore, who recently weighed in on a Facebook town hall about income inequality with experts like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, says if we’ve learned one thing from the Parkland shooting it’s that kids should be able to vote at age 16.
If there's one thing we've learned since Parkland, it's that the voting age should be lowered to 16. Other countries do it, we should too.

It’s funny how Moore’s revelation comes after, first, retailers like DICK’s and Walmart have decided to raise the age to buy a firearm to 21, and second, Democrats were out in force at an anti-gun march comprising hundreds of thousands of high-school-age students.
Hey, other countries let 16-year-olds vote.
Or maybe we could, you know, not. https://t.co/20obnHdmvd

Teenagers can't even be trusted to not eat detergent, and you want them to decide who gets to lead the country?

Teenagers are dumbasses. Let the 4 year olds vote. I welcome President Snuffleupagus. https://t.co/FaCnekl0pI

Yes, let's allow non-adults to vote in adult elections. Children should be learning how to deal with life, not trying to vote on bringing socialism into this country.
The younger the age, the more likely that individual will be emotional and not be logical (i.e. vote Democrat). https://t.co/wwSCFxo1qf

No sir..If we're raising the age to buy a gun to 21 then this also needs to happen
1. Raise the age of the draft to 21
2. Raise the age of voting to 21
3. Parents must sign approval for military service prior to 21

Wait. I think you're confused. Obama said these kids are "children" until age 26 for Obamacare.
Maybe we should raise the voting age to 26? https://t.co/BDKme5ojuc

If you learn only one thing from Parkland it should be that Michael Moore is an idiot. https://t.co/NXQJPFRFqL
