Seattle Democrat: College Students Have Incomplete Brain Development

I wonder how many WSU students caught this in the Evergreen today:
Sen. Ed Murray, D - Seattle, the main proponent for SB 6841 [an act that would restrict possession of firearms at institutions of higher education - tf], argued that studies showing incomplete brain development until late teens or early 20s mean “many students do not have the ability to make judgements about guns.” Schoesler [our Republican senator - tf] disagreed, describing university students as having “the best and brightest minds,” and being capable of making good judgments.
Ironically, the majority of our young men and women in the armed forces who are making "judgements about guns" in Iraq and Afghanistan every day are in their late teens or early 20s. But what would a Seattle Democrat know about that?

That's right, students. The Rats think you're just kids, but go ahead and keep voting for the buffoons anyway.

Perhaps we should also consider raising the voting age, too, in order to mitigate for reduced brain power in those 18-23. I don't suppose Sen. Murray, or another Dem for that matter, would support such a bill....
