Democrats push to drop nationwide voting age to 16, because young people are so much easier to brainwash at government-run schools

You can tell how desperate the Left is getting to win back power and how little confidence they have in a so-called “blue wave” coming this November — or at any time beyond the midterm elections — because their policy recommendations are getting nuttier.

While Marxist Democrats push for new gun control legislation that would restrict long-gun sales the same as handgun sales, requiring buyers to be at least 21 years old (ostensibly because buying a gun is such a massive responsibility), the same lunatics want to give 16-year-old teenagers the right to vote.

In fact, as reported by Guns.com, far-Left Democrats are actually citing “youth gun control advocacy” as a primary reason why they should be able to cast ballots in federal, state, and local elections:

The mechanism for the proposed constitutional amendment, H.J.Res.138, was introduced by U.S. Rep. Grace Meng earlier this month. The amendment would allow 16- and 17-year-olds to vote, the biggest change to the voting age since it was lowered from 21 to 18 in 1971.

“Over the past year, we have seen a huge wave of inspirational and passionate activism by students from all across the country,” said Meng in a statement. “Students are demanding change on issues such as gun safety, climate change, and healthcare. They deserve to have their voices heard at the ballot box and to have a say in the change for which they’re vigorously advocating. It’s clear to me that they should be allowed to vote.”

In a tweet, she added: “It shouldn’t take another 17 deaths for Congress to finally take action to prevent gun violence. We must be allowed to vote on common-sense legislation like the Gun Violence Research Act TODAY.”
