Alcohol accounts on average 88,000 deaths per year in the US. DUI drivers kill expectantly, but I hear of no one fighting to remove drinking alcohol, or even the strong liquor that is sold. We even sell to convicted DUI's. This seems crazy, save lives, remove the strong liquor. What are your thoughts. No one can say this is a small issue, or even an issue that will go away.

Excellent thought, but that is not the type of thinking coming out of the millennial generation, and that generation will soon have the power to make such changes.
Seems to be a lot of millennial bashing on the net. The millennials have enough to contend with concerning prior generation who have been in charge screwing things up to want to ban something that can give them a temporary escape.
We don't really know when alcohol first came to be deliberately made so it could be drank, but I suspect it goes right back to prehistoric times. I expect it will still be around in another thousand years at least.
Those were my exact thoughts Tom. Been there... done that... it was called Prohibition and simply created a bigger black market for something that was suddenly considered "illegal".
Then why do some promote gun laws that remove guns from citizens as the prohibition did in the 20's and 30's with alcohol, would removing guns have the same effect on crime rates and terrorist activities?
This wasn't a question about gun control so mixing the two together doesn't make any sense.
1930's that was almost 100 years ago, times have changed. People want to do away with free speech now, that was crazy talk 100 years ago, Evolution was crazy talk 100 years ago too. Times change we should change and limit what kills needlessly.
