Which do you fear more? A mass killer with a gun, or a drunk driver behind the wheel?
Wow! It appears America now has not one but two life threatening dangers that appear to be totally out of control but now this idiotic poster wants to know which one should you fear most ; he forgot to mention the third option and the most fearful of the lot a drunk driver also carrying a gun or do the already marvelous gun laws also cover against that happening?
This portrayal of modern America by a “patriot” portrays an image of a country little better than the worst South American hell hole
How kind of you to say that he is an idiot,
I base that on this and other posts and it is a statement of fact
if you are here to suggest an idea then do not mix it with a disrespectful remark
I can do as I wish and my remark is actually brutally honest which as seen before is an alien concept to you
Mass killer with a gun. That's fairly easy. A mass killer with a gun intends to kill, and they intend to kill as many as they can with the time they have. While one would argue that a drunk driver could intend to kill, that is typically not the main goal of the idiot behind the wheel. It's a completely preventable crime and I have nothing but disdain for someone who drives while drunk but I fear the person who wants to kill more than an idiot who may potentially kill.
The prevention is on the person who is drinking and driving. Either:
A. don't drink alcohol if you know you have to drive.
B. have someone be a designated driver.
C. Call one of any number of free services in your area.
D. Be in a location within an easy walk to a place of residence, either home or hotel, but understand that there are still laws against public intoxication in most places.
But somehow I figured you would write a response in an attempt to skew something so it really doesn't matter the answers I gave, no matter how obvious they are. The onus is on the person partaking in drinks to not get in a car behind the wheel if they are impaired.
Referring back to my original and still valid argument, their intent is usually not to murder people, that's a consequence to their action which is albeit stupid but nearly always unintentional. Where as a mass killer with a gun intends to kill as many as they can. This should be fairly obvious to you so unless you bring up any valid points that's all I really need to say.
We all know that this never ending Gun control is not about so called "assault rifles" (the definition always ends up including our hunting rifles), but about taking our guns one step at a time.
Try being honest just once in your life. Stop hiding behind the lie of supposedly saving lives.
Insofar that the statistics clearly show which of the two sources of death poses the greater danger I feel that as the D.U.I. laws are not acting as a deterrent to the criminal drivers we must ban the use of all motorized vehicles forthwith.
Only donkey drawn carts or speed restricted pedal cycles should be allowed on our highways and byways.
Initially this may cause some temporary difficulties but nothing that a little lifestyle readjustment and pedal power couldn't soon fix.

They show no such thing, moron. People drive every day, multiple times a day. Do you pull your gun out and shoot it everyday?

Can you explain how/why you have made the offensively stupid error of presuming fatality statistics are the only thing one needs in order to judge how dangerous something is? I am unsure how anybody could be so stupid unless they were actually doing it on purpose.
Nuclear missiles hardly kill anybody. Are they safe to legalise?
Tanks hardly kill anybody either. Are they safe to legalise?
The plan to depend on background checks for alcohol. (The only way to prevent this is to do a background check before they buy that weapon of death.....ALCOHOL!)
This is unworkable.
Kids, roommates, etc. who could not pass the background check would just raid other people's liquor cabinets.
The core of the problem is not alcohol or cars or guns. The core is irresponsible and careless and selfish people.
After thousands of laws and thousands of years of religions and philosophies like Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Islam, Hinduism, and Islam, somehow people still have not changed.
It turns out that there is no legal, bureaucratic, or religious way to prevent dumb-shits and ass-hats from hurting others by behaving like dumb-shits and ass-hats.
