    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 32,885 people died in traffic crashes in 2010 in the United States (latest figures available),
    including an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths last year.

    Since NHTSA began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 52% from 21,113 in 1982.
    Since the inception of The Century Council and our national efforts to fight drunk driving, drunk driving fatalities have declined 35% from 15,827 in 1991. (Source: NHTSA/FARS, 2011)

    Sixteen US Mass Shootings Happened in 2012, Leaving at Least 88 Dead | The Nation

    A drunk driver in 2010 killed 115 people for every one person killed in a mass killing in 2012.

    Where is the media on Banning alcohol which causes drunken behavior which causes driving accidents which causes killings?

    Shouldn't every drunk driver that kills someone be executed???

    Beat me to it.

    We don't have any numbers from the government on gun violence.

    Which leaves it up to private organizations to do the research. That's spotty at best.

    Imagine the deaths if criminals feared the consequences.

    Instead of addressing drunk driving, democrats want to increase the carnage by legalizing marijuana. If there are 30,000 drunk drivers on the road, those roads will be made safer by adding 30,000 drivers high on pot.

    Sliding off topic here but it is not the 'democrats' who want to legalize marijuana. It's the American public. Something republicans might not quite grasp.
