Perhaps a comparison and commentary on how society determines when a young person is "mature" would suffice. The idea of a 17-year-old boy purchasing a gun (legally) is unthinkable today, but didn't seem out of the ordinary in the story. In your analysis, include which era's approach to determining maturity makes more sense.
