Ban the tools

Eight people MASSACRED.  Ban CARS.

If eight people were shot in Maryland, there’d be more call for gun control.  Our police, elected officials, and even families are now saying “it was a car.  There’s nothing we can do.”

Well, there is.

Put up signs.  Put up stop lights.  Pass laws.  Oh, wait, we do all that.  “All we can charge them with is reckless driving.”  Bullpuckey.  Put some teeth into the laws, or repeal them.

Ban the tools.  The cars.  Tax the snot out of them.

Or, more sensibly, light the streets.  Use infrared cameras.  Put stop lights with barriers.

Or let your people die.

I feel sorry eight people are dead.  But I can’t get too worked up.  Normal people don’t take their families to a darkened street at 2 am to watch illegal activities.  Every person there as a spectator was supporting illegal activities
