Absolutely correct.

I still think the president should sign an executive order regulating guns and make the Supreme Court overturn it.

The Supreme Court is and has been the problem not everybody’s favorite bogeymen.

This whole issue comes down to what the second amendment means…and for some reason over the last 40 years there has been a failure of the Courts to respond to the challenges presented by newly developed mass weapons that allow killers to massively kill quickly.

This type of shooting was not an issue for a long time…. So what has changed? And how can we change back?

The New York Yankees are taking quite the stand on gun violence on their Twitter, etc..

They aren’t going to broadcast tonight’s game and instead offer facts about gun violence

Of course the QOP will react with the usual pearl clutching

I’d like to see a ‘good guys with guns’ revenge movie about a gang of vigilante kids who have survived these terrors that hunt down the whole ecosystem of merchants of death that profit from and encourage a system that enables these shootings. Would be cathartic. Maybe Tarantino could do it.

What’s the explanation for the dramatic drop in deaths from motor vehicle accidents?

Don't know specifically, but probably child car seat laws.

Interesting

Don't know specifically, but probably child car seat laws.
chart reflects 18 and under, but I do think that was the era that made it more than infants and kids up to 7 years old needed a booster seat
also change that kids shouldn't ride in the front seat due to airbag deaths

https://www.vox.com/2014/4/2/5572648/why-are-fewer-people-dying-in-car-crashes

but seems airbags/improvement in braking is a big reason for less fatalities
also less drunks killing people


We did have a 10% increase in fatalities in 2021 at 42,915 people dying in cars

that still is insane, I say bring on the robots, I bet that would be less than 1000 in a few years
350,000 Americans died on the roads in the last 10 years!


so went back up to 2008 levels after decreasing for a while
But in perspective, fatalties per 100K was 12.6 in 2021
in 1972 it was 26 per 100k...so that's a good trend line
(54,589 died, but smaller pop too)
