Same reason you can buy a shotgun at 18 but must wait till 21 to buy a hand gun.

Ah, so it doesn't make sense, then. Gotcha.

Seriously, this is another matter for the states to decide. I have no problem with some states/counties/cities choosing to disallow the purchase of alcohol on Sundays because it's not a federal law, and those who live in areas that have such laws know that they can move elsewhere if the option of drinking on Sunday is that important to them. I'd feel the same about some states not allowing the purchase of alcohol by a legal adult until the age of 21. It's the fact that the law is federal that makes no sense.

I completely agree.

However, the argument that those laws exist because people don't want younger people to have fun is a very CHILDISH argument. It seems that many Libertarians are just unmatured 15 year olds.

Is it? I thought it was by federal coersion by withholding highway money?

A small point, since it amounts to the same thing.
