Whoah!! That's close to three times the number of gun related deaths in the US.
Guess we had better look in to banning those large capacity beer steins and assault martinis.

Unfortunately we can't truly live in a survival of the fittest world, due to laws. At least the weak kill themselves off with booze, cigs and fast food.

No, but it should be. We should all have the right to put whatever we want to in to our bodies without undue interference from the government.

We are free to do just that in the privacy of our homes. If we fence our yards we can do whatever we want to in our yard as well. Government has no right to observe/control what we do on private property unless there is proof of a crime being committed. Of course there is personal responsibility involved with any action.

I was relating to the constitutional right to bear arms that cause shootings and the usage of booze that kills many more people that constitutional guns.

I don't disagree with you at all. But give them time. They are becoming more and more intrusive in to peoples private lives, usually under the guise of protecting us from ourselves, but mostly as a means to control the population. Much like the government can't stop spending money, they also can't stop making stupid, and often, unenforcable laws.
Turning ordinaly people in to criminals.

Agreed, the worst thing is an over staffed law enforcement.

We now have that in place, heck even Ex Senator Tom Rukavina (D) Virginia said the DNR could be cut by 50% and it would improve the quality of life. A friend was on the St Croix river recently and was checked 3 times in one day for you know their excuse of life jackets etc. While on the St Croix they had a enforcement boat fly by with lights and siren booming, for no apparent reason. And throw on "Homeland Security" who is out there enforcing traffic violations etc, no emphasis on national threats.

Government is way out of control!! Taxes could be cut 25% just by reducing law enforcement head counts and their expensive toys they drop on highways. 2 weeks ago a Sheriffs fast boat fell off a trailer on 694 at 81, of course a wreck followed of course no citation was written on the dumb ass COPs that didn't secure their load. If you or I did that and someone was injured it would be headline news with a Trooper lecturing us on how to attach trailers etc.

All these hamburger helpers and Troopers do is phoock up rush hour traffic. Ever notice it takes then an hour to clear a fender bender?

Phoock Government idiots every one!!!
