1. It's much, much easier to have a blanket policy--card everybody--than it is to require "a young person just turning legal age" to determine who needs to be carded and who doesn't.
I've learned to have my ID out at one grocery chain. That's their policy, and no amount of arguing will get them to make an exception for me.
2. Wisconsin, at least, provides for a state ID for those who do not or cannot drive. This policy was in place before Voter ID became law, and then was overruled, and now may or may not be constitutional.
3.Perhaps your seniors can do like "minors" do, and get someone to carry out?? I cannot imagine any state or locality that will prosecute me for purchasing alcohol to share with other adults.
4. Your seniors can also show respect for any store's policies, and be prepared to show ID if asked. Nobody is being respected when a customer argues with an employee who is following policy.
