9,146 gun homicides in US. 16,885 killed by drunk drivers.
Not all alcohol related deaths. That number is massive. That is just the number per year killed by drunk drivers involved in car accidents.

I guess we should publish the names of each person who buys a bottle of liquor. So that the neighbors know who might potentially drive drunk.

Oh and fingerprint them too.

Tucked unobtrusively and almost unnoticed into the summary of the coming Feinstein gun bill is language which covers all "existing gun owners." From Feistein.senate.gov bill summary:

Quote:-Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:

Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.

-Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:

Background check of owner and any transferee;
Type and serial number of the firearm;
Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;

Katie Pavlich, News Editor at http://www.TownHall.com notes:

Quote:The key here is that Feinstein made sure to throw a clause in about "protecting legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners," yet wants them treated as if they are guilty by requiring massive gun registration and fingerprinting for firearms that have been lawfully purchased. The legislation covers a ton of ground. Nearly every semi-automatic handgun in the United States has a detachable magazine.

The summary language makes no distinction between "existing gun owners" and existing owners of the newly-banned, listed weapons.
