75,000 to 100,000 Americans die every year from the use of alcohol - from disease, from violence induced by alcohol, from drunk driving accidents. 1,500 to 2,000 innocent children under 16 are killed as passengers, pedestrians, or bike riders by drunk drivers every year. Where's the outrage? Where's the demand to ban alcohol, a substance with far less redeeming value than guns. Where's the compassion for children killed by drunk drivers; for the thousands born every year with fetal alcohol syndrome; for the children abused by their drunken parents? Why is it that the thousands of children killed by alcohol do not deserve compassion and outcries, while those few who are killed by guns create such outcries?
