Man gets drunk celebrating his 26th birthday, paws a woman in a diner, then shoots and kills another man for trying to intervene. Janet Shan at Hinterland Gazette says “Some people shouldn’t be allowed near a gun.”
Why not say (instead or in addition) “Some people shouldn’t be allowed near a bottle”? Or even “Bars shouldn’t be allowed to send patrons out drunk”? Having chosen to legalize alcohol, must we accept the resulting carnage, or should we try to do something about it?
