OK, so I can serve my country at 18, but I can't buy alcohol, or a handgun until I am 21? Why are the laws this way?
I served a year in the Army, and I have friends in the military who are under 21 that have done combat tours over seas. Why can't we get alcohol? Why can't we buy a handgun to defend ourselves against violence at home? makes no sense to me. Someone please explain!
