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.
