I want people to wake up from this BS life and start giving a damn about drink driving, too many people dying. Effing media sensationalize that which makes their masters rich but not caring about the ordinary folks and their ordinary lives.

Is it that hard to get a friend to drive you home if your drunk, high, or to distracted to drive?

Who died? In many of the cases the drunk driver survives. How many of the above were sober victims of Drunk Drivers, How many were the Drunks? Terrorists blow up bombs during their holidays, Drunks Drive in Cars. Dead is Dead.

Drunk drivers, if not stopped eventually WILL KILL or injure others and themselves. As one who has lived through it, you cannot imagine the pain of a family who has lost their loved one or has to watch them struggle through life with dibilitating injuries while the drunk drivers go on only to drive drunk again. Stricter laws for offenders. Take their license or require the breathalizer device that prevents them from starting the vehicle if they are not sober. It's simple but political pressures prevent these simple measures to be used nation wide. Wake up or you may not wake up one day.

Society has so many problems with additive behaviors. People have to want to live responsibly but if they choose to live irresponsibly, then they need to have severe consequences. Taking a driver license away does nothing! Legislation needs to get some backbone and start doing something! Jail with no bail on repeat offenders, checkpoints on major streets, interlocking device inside vehicle. Innocent people are dying bcause offenders kmow there is no stiff punishment.

You can control what is out of your control. Try prohibition again you know you want to. It wont work again. Your lying about your #'s you know that drunk driving rises every year regardless of what you do. you should find another cause.

Just wondering how do we fix the other 71% of the auto related fatalities? That's damn near 20,000 other ppl dead because of driving. Ban driving, go back to the horse as transportation. Or, eliminate ppl all together, that would probably go a long way in fixing any issue we have.

Look at that total killed by DUI and they want to ban certain guns. What is wrong with priorities in our country. It's like they want to just ignore MADD if at all possible. I'm a dad and I see this on the news almost every day in a near by city we work in and it makes me so mad. It's like baning other things will put a smoke screen over Drunk Driving.. They really make me sick not putting the laws we have in place. Our Government needs to be overhauled not the laws for the most part.

There is a special Federal Police force just dedicated to Guns, Alcohol, and Drugs. You know how large that task force is? the national force is just under 25k (Source: Colbert Report)

Please push the fight to get the drunk drivers off the road, zero tolerance. Politicians should be punished when they get pulled over like anyone else. Ask the police, firefighters and EMTs about dealing with it on a regular basis. Why is there even such a thing as a repeat offender? Keeping trying until you kill someone? The gun issue is something completely different and more complex. In Massachusetts we have strict laws and mandatory sentencing yet people commit gun crimes and walk away with suspended sentences or reduced time. The issue is the court system. Stop punishing the legal owners and start punishing criminals.

Fixing the drunk driver problem is an easy fix. The problem is nobody wants to becuase it would effect just about everyone. Let have a very harsh punishement like loss of their drivers license for 10 years and 1 years in jail. It would not take long before people figured out that drunk driving is a bad idea. Parts Europe dont have a problem with it. Also remember that guns dont kill people, people kill people.

It’s completely understandable why people are so adamant about the ban on certain assault weapons. In the wrong hands they can cause and inflict much damage and chaos. Look at all the current statistics regarding nationwide deaths caused by both violent crimes and adults acting negligently and driving while under the influence of either an alcoholic beverage or that of a thought altering controlled substance. I believe that with as much energy and funds being exerted in trying to ban more weapons in the United States, our elected officials could use the finances and energy in ensuring the safety of our children and family members in the general public and public school system. The money which will be allocated to the further protests against weapons and studies used to show how damaging weapons are; we put those funds back where it belongs, in the cities and hire more Police Officers. Most laws being passed regarding weapon bans are being done so due to some politician’s personal agenda and not based on actual statistics to support the ban. Laws are enacted to keep the honest person honest. The drug dealers, the gang members, the all-around DEGENERATE who truly don’t care for the laws of this country, state, county or city or care one way or another about any given ban. They will and do find the weapons and use them. Build more jails, hire more guards protect our future. Provide mental health assistance to those that need it. Stop using the unnecessary violence and deaths of the poor innocent victims to try and justify your unreasonable bans.
