One might take the road that 18 years are not responsible. Evidence shows not full developed front cortices that inhibit risky behavior. That we let them have guns in the military is ok because they are tightly supervised.
That takes it out of arbitrary doesnt it? Or at least part of arbitrary

However, the reasonable counterpoint is why do we let the irrational vote?
Apples and oranges. The better counterpoint is why we dont let 18 year olds drink.

Some rights and responsiblities need to be earned with age and the question is best not answered with rote soundbites (and that aint directed at you Al). Need we discuss age of consent laws?

Watch those cortices kiddies
