    Nope. You’re arguing should vs IS. All I’ve BEEN saying is that SINCE a business can’t legally refuse sale for an imaginary right, they certainly can’t for an enumerated right, within the law. The 1st, 3rd, 4th, etc.....say nothing about age, either.

    Not remotely the same. The rental company is remediating risk on a product they continue to own. It would be more akin to refusing to sell a car for cash to someone based on age. That said, as it stands we allow too much leeway in discriminating based on youth. Young adults just don't have the lobbying power that old geezers do.

    Is that about how old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill every time?

    Yeah, but (no offense) previous generations didn’t protect the stupid ones from their own stupidity. When leftists CAN become old, because society allows one to grow old while STILL being unproductive and demanding of others, then we’ve ruined society.

    This may be true... I vote to remove the warning labels.

    That's one way of looking at voting to spend our grandchildren into exorbitant debt and voting to treat younger folks as 2nd class citizens. They are either adults or they're not.

    Duck you are correct in that they are an adult or not, and since the only reasonable way to uniformly do that is by setting an age standard. Yet even there we have different levels of access to things.

    Buddy son came home from Afganistan wounded. 20 years old at the time, couldn't have a beer with his Dad legally. We are a nation of contradictions so it will not surprise me to see the courts ruling against the young man.

    For sure that approach didn’t start yesterday.
    Ya note the conundrum for the ages. Defining “adult” simply in terms of physical maturation has been one of mankind’s greater failures.

    How many time have you heard of a child (under 18) being tried as an adult, due to his size, the crime, how it went down, what he was thinking, he has a mustache, etc...
    I think that bothers me the most
