One might take the road that 18 years are not responsible. Evidence shows not full developed front cortices that inhibit risky behavior.
Then we cannot risk allowing them to vote, enter into binding contracts, consent to sexual intercourse, get married, etc.

That we let them have guns in the military is ok because they are tightly supervised.
18-20 year-olds are currently permitted to buy long guns from an FFL and to own/use handguns. Only handgun purchases from an FFL are prohibited. How is the distinction justified?
Send lawyers, guns, and money...
