I know some 30+ year-olds who are like 8 year-olds, and I know some 18 year-olds who are extremely mature and responsible. Heck, my 3 year-old niece has better maturity and gun safety habits than some adults I\'ve seen. :O
Age sure doesn\'t determine mental maturity.
If a person is old enough to vote and old enough to die for our country when he/she is 18, than he/she should be old enough to buy a handgun and get a CCW.
Way back wheen, kids grew up handling guns like they do Playstations now. Makes you wonder what happened.
