For fuck sakes, are you actually trying to imply that these are morally equivalent?
No i'm not implying that at all. I'm saying that we should have the same vitriol towards both subjects. Regardless of the method, 10,000 people die each year in the states to both alcohol and guns. Their are 20,000 families out there grieving for loved ones removed way too early due to means that should be controlled more.

Again, I'm not advocating for keeping all guns or for banning all guns. There's a line in the middle that I think we should be striving for. Knee-jerk reactions one way or the other are what we need to be avoiding.
