Spitting Into The Wind

A Letter to the Editor I recently submitted hasn’t  been published. The paper leans as far to the left as possible in a sold red county (Trump carried with 72% of the vote). I’m not holding my breath.

To The Editor:

In 2019 nationwide there were 2,112 more deaths from gunshots than traffic deaths (39,707 vs 37,595) per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Vital Statistics System.

10,142 of the traffic deaths involved alcohol, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Requiring a breath test interlock device on every vehicle in the USA could save those lives.

Ridiculous?  No more ridiculous than the myriad of proposed “gun laws.

They seem to think they can legislate us into the safety of the crib. They can f*ck off. I say that as a religious professional.

Appropriate language to make a very clear point!

We don' need no stinking media.
Thanks for trying.

I just can't understand how these dolts think enacting more laws that **only** affect legal gun owners will reduce crime.

What morons....

Might get posted. Not likely to change many minds.

There are some tough intractable problems to be solved and the dolts haven't a clue as to solve them. Their circus show defelects the voters from noticing their representatives couldn't pour piss out of a boot when the instructions are on the heel. Add the real fear armed citizens can bring them to account and you have major incentive.
