Same with getting permitted and renewing concealed weapons permits.

Most responsible people will do the right thing as they age and their ability change.

I do not think whether to or not should be a specific age because there are so many differing abilities within any age group. There just needs to be a more reliable method for renewal that helps determine ability regardless the age.
I agree with you completely. That is why I mentioned the two examples of a 91 year old. It is NOT the age of a person that is the problem, it is their physical and mental ability to safely use the item.

However I do think that at some age testing should be increased in frequency. Just like we picked a random age for drinking and smoking - you can go kill or die for your country, but you can't drink. Laws don't always make sense. But, we "need" some randomly pick age for things to start happening.

You never know where lightning will strike, again, we're surrounded by have nots--pulling into a gas station, super mkt, doesn't mean you're living in the wrong place--Sharon Tate was living in Beverly Hills--not the wrong place--but the wrong time

Amen! Your last sentence should be the final thought.
