By the 2020 presidential election, 16 and 17-year-olds may be able to vote in the nation's capital.
Washington, D.C. may lower the voting age for federal and local elections to 16. The legislation was introduced last Tuesday by D.C. council member Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), who said he was inspired by the high schoolers that came to D.C. to protest at the March for our lives.
Advocates of the measure say they have the support of seven of 13, a majority of D.C. Council members.
"I think people are getting excited about this, especially with what's going on in the nation right now in terms of youth leading social change. So I think that people are going to be very excited about it and want to get on board," said Alisha Chopra, 18, a senior at School Without Walls.
The Parkland students who survived a mass shooting in February are already credited for changing laws in Florida.

A soldier’s life is always at risk – even because of his own parachute. The parachute can open anytime and sometimes the thing that is meant to save lives can cause troubles too. Let’s hope the soldier is alright.

Conspiracy theorists have launched fresh claims NASA faked the moon landings after analysing a picture captured on Apollo 16.
A YouTube channel, named UFOmania - The truth is out there, has uploaded video which includes a blown up image of US astronaut John Young collecting lunar samples on the moon's surface.
The US-based account regularly uploads videos claiming alien activity and has previously suggested the Apollo missions were faked.
The clip, entitled Lunar Base revealed in Apollo image, has racked up 21,000 views just one day after it was posted to YouTube.

A 72-year-old woman has been arrested after she was caught on camera assaulting two female soldiers, including a pregnant one.
Shocking video shows the altercation between Judy Tucker and the two unidentified soldiers on Saturday night at a Cheddars restaurant in Macon, Georgia.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is fundraising off the firing of “our only hope” Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but one problem: Mueller has not been fired.
The California Democrat sent out an email last week titled “Mueller FIRED” and asked people to donate to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) amid speculations that President Donald Trump may fire Mueller in retaliation for the FBI raid on his lawyer Michael Cohen.
But as the actual fundraiser email text acknowledges, Mueller was not fired by Trump.
"I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” Pelosi wrote, according to The Washington Examiner. “President Trump is inches away from firing Robert Mueller and derailing the entire Russia investigation.”
Six more youths were stabbed in 90 minutes in London last night - with the youngest victim aged just 13.
More than 50 people have been killed in the capital since the start of the year, more than 30 of whom were fatally knifed.
The pressure on murder detectives is now so great that Scotland Yard has enlisted the support of City of London police to help cope with the caseload.
In the latest spate of stabbings, six youths were attacked within a 90-minute period, including a 13-year-old boy who was seriously wounded after being set upon in Newham, east London, shortly before 7pm.
Three youths were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent, Scotland Yard said.
Around an hour earlier, two 15-year-olds were seriously hurt after being stabbed in Grove Road, Mile End, east London.
In a flyer created for a “Positive Parenting Skills” conference, Islamic scholar Dr. M. Rateb Al-Nabulsi was listed as a “special guest speaker” at the event, which was held by the Security Advancement Center (SAC), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and Aisha Cultural Center in Orlando. Al Nabulsi, the Muslim extremist guest speaker has publicly called for the killing of gays and Jews and advocates for Islamic suicide bombings on his website.
Conservative journalist Laura Loomer drove to Orlando to report on the event, which was described on the flyer as being open to the public. Besides being a public event, the event was hosted at a public tax payer funded Florida Middle School, which gives any member of the public and the press the right to come on the property.
When Loomer approached the table to enter the event, event organizers and an official from CAIR refused to admit Loomer and her cameraman into the event and she was threatened with arrest by officers from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
MACK: “I would say the first thought when I watched that last night was ‘where was his staff?’ ‘where were those around him with comparable experience to overcome whatever beaten down views he had?’ Because at least my experiences that when you feel beaten down, your decision-making is impacted and that’s when you need people around you to get you to think a little bit about where your situation and what you’re supposed to do about it.”
CABRERA: “As we understand, this was a five-hour interview that ABC condensed to one-hour and there was so much in it. They did release the full transcript. Did you hear anything or learn anything that surprised you?”
MACK: “Most people, such as Jim and me and others with that experience are very reluctant to be in produced pieces and interviews. When I saw how edited the interview was, and in many ways I was wondering whether he was making the right decision to be interviewed outside of the legal process which he is part of right now..”
CABRERA: “He put himself out clearly, but then he, in his book and some of his comments that he’s made on air, commenting on orange skins and small hands, if he wanted the focus to be on what he sees as a serious threat to the office of the presidency, why go there? Why talk about the president’s appearance?”
MACK: “I’m not going to justify that, myself. The only time I talk to the press is in the courtroom and that is when I’m explaining myself either to a professional and I think you run the risk lowering your platform by interacting and going at all personal. He may regret it. I hope his advisors — I’m not one of them — have considered that in terms of how he conducts himself last night and in the ensuing times. Whether going on book tours and interacting and perhaps lowering his own credibility in order to deal with what’s coming his way, I’m not sure it enhances his reputation.”
JAMES COMEY: “My wife and girls marched in the Women’s March the day after President Trump’s inauguration. At least my four daughters, probably all five of my kids wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president. I know my amazing spouse did.
PATRICE COMEY: “I wanted a woman president really badly and I supported Hillary Clinton. A lot of my friends worked for her. It’s devastating when she lost.
R. Lee Ermey, the actor known for his Golden Globe-nominated role as an intimidating drill sergeant in "Full Metal Jacket," died Sunday at the age of 74, according to his manager.
Ermey died from complications of pneumonia, said Bill Rogin, his manager, in a post on Twitter. CNN's calls and emails to Rogin were not returned.
Ermey played the role of the tough Gunnery Sgt. Hartman, who trains a new group of recruits in the 1987 film "Full Metal Jacket." He received a Golden Globe best supporting actor nomination in the movie directed by Stanley Kubrick.
The Vietnam veteran brought authenticity to the role after having served in the Marine Corps from 1961 to 1972. He spent two years as a drill instructor at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and rose to the rank of staff sergeant. He was medically retired for injuries in 1971 and in 2002 he received an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant, according to a biography on his website.
"It is extremely difficult to truly quantify all of the great things this man has selflessly done for, and on behalf of, our many men and women in uniform," Rogin said in a statement issued on Facebook.
"He has also contributed many iconic and indelible characters on film that will live on forever."
A riot at one of South Carolina’s most dangerous prisons left seven inmates dead and 17 others injured, a prison official said Monday.
Lee Correctional Institution was secured at around 2:55 a.m., nearly eight hours after multiple fights broke out in three housing units Sunday night, prison spokesman Jeff Taillon said. The incident started around 7:15 p.m., he said.
All prison staff and responding law enforcement officers were reported safe after the incident, the South Carolina Department of Corrections wrote in a tweet. The department added the State Law Enforcement Division was assisting prison officials in its investigation.
Emergency services from several South Carolina counties responded to the “mass casualty incident,” Lee County Fire wrote in a tweet.
Lee County Coroner Larry Logan told the Associated Press that the seven inmates who were killed during the riot died of stabbing and slashing wounds. Logan said he arrived at a chaotic scene.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner says claims by Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' attorneys that she purposefully hid evidence are an unwarranted attempt to distract from a pending criminal case against the governor.
Greitens' attorneys on Thursday accused Gardner of misconduct for withholding a videotaped interview of a woman with whom Greitens had an affair in 2015.
Prosecutors who initially claimed the recorder malfunctioned shared a copy Wednesday night, around the time a legislative committee report was released that prompted widespread calls for Greitens' resignation.
Greitens' attorneys want the case dismissed.
Gardner in a Thursday memorandum wrote that she learned the video was viewable Monday. She realized a special investigator's testimony was incorrect Tuesday after she viewed the video in full for the first time, then got additional notes from the investigator.
Gardner wrote that she turned over the evidence Wednesday, within a 48-hour deadline the court previously gave for her office to share new evidence.
Defense attorneys say the videotaped interview offers proof that the encounter was consensual.

A man has claimed his drone has captured the ghost of a knight on horseback riding across an 11th century castle - and said his footage is "clear as day".
Thomas Arnold, 41, was flying his new drone at Berkeley Castle when he was spooked by the apparent apparition galloping through the grounds.
He said the footage was shot when the drone mysteriously lost contact for ten seconds and thought nothing of it until he reviewed the video back his home.
Thomas, from Dursley, Gloucestershire, said he believes he captured a knight riding his horse across the castle.
A beach-goer has lost his leg after being attacked by a shark while swimming off the coast of Brazil.
Pablo de Melo suffered horrific injuries at Piedade Beach in Recife on Sunday and needed to have one of his legs amputated as doctors battled to save his life.
The shark ripped into Pablo's arms and legs as he swam through surf - in an area known for frequent shark attacks.
It's believed the 34-year-old survived the attack because two men, who were in the water nearby, risked their own lives by bravely chasing off the beast and hauling the severely injured man out of the water.
A team of lifeguards and fire officers carried out first aid before airlifting the victim to Restoration Hospital where he was rushed by a trauma team into surgery.
Doctors reported the tourist, who was vacationing with his family in the holiday resort, underwent a four-hour life-saving operation.
The head of a conservative activist group was "disinvited" from a voluntary event at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where a gunman killed 17 people on Feb. 14.
Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, said a group of students led by shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv invited him to speak after school to those who were interested in hearing from him.
Kirk said he would be speaking about gun rights, natural rights and the Constitution in the wake of the deadly shooting at the Broward County school.
"My mission would not have been to offend. I did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but instead, here’s what really troubles me. Ever since that horrific shooting, the national conversation predominately from students from that school has been about gun confiscation about taking people’s guns away," Kirk said.
Kirk said he wanted to discuss the failures of local law enforcement and the FBI, a topic he said is not often discussed -- in favor of gun control and Second Amendment critiques.
He said the school administration holds a "predominant... left-wing world view."
When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before a Senate Judiciary Committee and Commerce Committee joint hearing Tuesday, I asked a relatively simple question: does Facebook consider itself a neutral public forum?
Zuckerberg said that Facebook is a “platform for all ideas,” but declined to give a “yes” or “no” answer. The problem is, this is not merely an academic distinction between words. Facebook’s answer to the question could affect millions of users, and attract (or prevent) a lot of attention from federal regulators.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) states: "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."
This is a good provision. It means that, for example, if you run a blogging platform and someone posts a terrorist threat in the comments section, you’re not treated as the person making the threat. Without Section 230, many social media networks could be functionally unable to operate.
In order to be protected by Section 230, companies like Facebook should be “neutral public forums.” On the flip side, they should be considered to be a “publisher or speaker” of user content if they pick and choose what gets published or spoken.
As I expressed to Mark Zuckerberg, as a private business Facebook has a clear First Amendment right to publish whatever it wants on its website within the bounds of the law. The company can support political causes and oppose ones it disagrees with, just like a private citizen can speak his or her mind or agitate against opposing views.
But if Facebook is busy censoring legal, protected speech for political reasons, the company should be held accountable for the posts it lets through. And it should not enjoy any special congressional immunity from liability for its actions.
Mobs of black racists in south Africa are now openly robbing stores that are owned by whites and foreigners.
Watch as the South African police stand idly by and watch as the chaos unfolds.
Calls for genocide has been systematically rising as the racist president continues to call for the theft of land owned by whites as well as for their murder. The racist president has also attacked countries such as Australia who are welcoming in the whites that are now trying to flee the country.
During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly stated he would build a wall and that Mexico would pay for it. A new wall is going up along the New Mexico's border with Mexico border.
For most of the New Mexico-Mexico border, road barriers are what separate the two countries, and it's easy to get through it on foot. Twenty miles of road barriers are being replaced with what is called a bollard wall.
Since Congress hasn't approved full funding for Trump's border wall, U.S. Customs and Border Protection plans on piecemealing sections together. This section of New Mexico's border was a high priority.
From the 9th Circuit argument Monday morning in Hernandez v. San Jose — City attorney says SJPD should not be held responsible for forcing Trump supporters to walk through a violent mob, because attending a Trump rally is an inherently dangerous act!
On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “At This Hour,” Representative Jim Himes (D-CT) stated that while it is fair to discuss whether former FBI Director James Comey handled the Hillary Clinton email matter properly, “people will rot in hell for besmirching the reputation, the integrity, and the professional history” of Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller
Himes said, “Lots of people, Democrats, lawyers, judges were very concerned by Comey’s breaking of protocol and publicly discussing the Hillary Clinton — remember, it was the Hillary Clinton investigation that he discussed, while there was an investigation of Donald Trump. So, you know, we should have a conversation, and I think Jim Comey’s reflective about whether he made the right thing. But the idea that this man is dishonest, and remember, this is all part and parcel of the attempt that the White House is making to besmirch Robert Mueller, a decorated war hero. That’s what is happening here. So, yes, let’s have that conversation about whether Jim Comey made the right move in talking about the Hillary Clinton thing, but people will rot in hell for besmirching the reputation, the integrity, and the professional history of these two men.”
