As Twitchy told you, Laurence Tribe thinks it’s high time that 16-year-old kids get the right to vote. Tribe may have gotten mocked for that, but at least he can take comfort in knowing that there’s another law professor out there who shares his “pipe dream” — and CNN is more than happy to indulge him:
Should 16-year-olds be able to vote? "The response at Stoneman Douglas High is showing that youth in this country can and should have a significant role in political debate," writes law professor Joshua Douglas via @CNNOpinion https://t.co/7svYlemSDL

Yes, folks. He’s serious. And he does not deserve to be taken seriously.
You are disproving your point admirably. "The gunman, on the other hand, was 19. He was already eligible to vote. But of course reaching that age doesn't guarantee maturity."

It doesn’t take a woke teenager to see that Joshua Douglas isn’t making a great case.

Only because they are saying the same thing you are. Where are the pro 2a students?

They’re getting taunted by blue checkmarks.
"We should let teenagers vote because they said some stuff on TV about gun control that we like." Great argument https://t.co/hRI1eztiYf

Using that same logic, the drinking age should be lowered to 16 since they are old enough to drive. https://t.co/DEZWQCwgts

We don't trust 16 year olds to drink responsibly, not serve their country yet, and exempt them from paying taxes, yet they should totally vote in elections. https://t.co/xsqhWDW3DN

Kind of weird to argue that 18 and 19 year olds aren’t responsible enough to handle firearm ownership, but 16 year olds should be allowed to dictate national policy. https://t.co/mBkPf7lU8s

In fact, we should be thinking about raising the minimum voting age. https://t.co/NdGnKO1xQb

In any event, one thing’s for sure:
If 16-year-olds skewed GOP, they would never publish this. https://t.co/arBeVgH7aU
