"Raise the drivers age limit. Teenage drivers are the most dangerous. Remember that driving is a privilege not a right guaranteed by the constitution." Seems to me that driving is a right included in the 1st Amendent. You know, the freedom of assembly part. Anyone know if there has ever been a challenge to this ?
You sound like a politician; “We have to do something!” Does the sound of your voice make you feel all excited, cause you have the vapors because YOU have the answers? OMG, please sit down and be quiet. More legislation, more rules, more laws all equal more carnage. You pontificate. You sound like Joe. Awareness and caring come from examples taught by, wait for it… a dad, a mom. Family examples. How about coming up with ways to rebuild our nation’s family structure? You’ll never legislate moral fiber, self awareness, surrounding awareness, good decision making.

No kidding....why would we 'do anything' given all the children that continually get murdered sitting in their classrooms. Blasphemy!

If any issue need a fresh approach, to be looked at from a different prospective, it would have to be, mass shooting in this country! ONLY a complete MORON would continue to hammer on the very same thing, gun control, every single time this happens! If WE actually want to make a difference, and do something that has a REAL EFFECT ON THIS TERRIBLE TREND, we simply must, investigate the reasons behind it, and FOLLOW THE EVIDENCE WHERE EVER IT LEADS! That will never happpen unless we can find investigaters that don't have a DOG IN THIS FIGHT, and that unlikely to happen!

We should follow Australia’s example. They have some good ones:

Earlier this year, a Sydney man was fined $112 AU ($77 USD) for leaving his car unlocked when he went into a service station. It was such a rare event the story ended up in the news, and a lot of people realized for the first time that they had been breaking the law when they did the same thing.
“If you are going to be more than three meters from your vehicle, you must secure it by turning off the engine, closing all the windows and locking all the doors.”
In Victoria and Queensland, if you’re more than three meters (10 ft.) away your windows must be wound up with a gap of no more than 5 cm (2 in.), while in NSW you can only have a 2 cm (1 in.) gap.

It’s illegal to have any part of your body outside of a vehicle. So no waving bye to your family.


It’s illegal to honk your horn or use any warning device unless you’re justifiably warning another car. So no honking at your family as you leave.

In Western Australia it’s illegal to transport more than 50 kg (110 lbs.) of potatoes in your car unless you’re a member of the Potato Corporation or an authorized agent.
Break this law and you’ll face a fine of $2,000 – 5,000 AUD ($1,368 – 3,420 USD).

As a person under the age of 25, you’re not allowed to drive anything with a v8, over a certain power to weight ratio, or over 100kmh (62mph, and if the speed limit is higher you still can’t go over), you have no driving/curfew hours, no more than one passenger allowed, blah blah blah.

It’s a serious offense to do most modifications to cars there. I read a while back that a guy had a nice car imported from Japan, drove it for a few weeks, was pulled over. Cop went through his car, found a cold air intake, confiscated his car and had it crushed.

"Any government big enough to take care of all hoiur needs, is also big enough to take everything you have including your FREEDOM!" President Ronald Reagan! We can't have it both ways!

These tragedies are only opportunities for the left to take away your guns. That is their ultimate goal. They don't really want to stop the shootings until they ban all guns. Once you realized they don't want to stop the shootings, they want to take your guns, then you will start looking at things differently.

Well said! Why are Crooked Politicians, and their lap dog news media, not looking at any other possible causes for these senseless KILLINGS? EXTREME VIOLENCE SELLS, makes mega bucks for Hollywood! it also influences the weak minded to try and imitate their HOLLYWOOD, VIDEO GAME, RAP, HEROES! DESENSAEITIZES THESE MORONS TO VIOLENCE, AND NO TELLING WHAT ELSE! BUT NO ONE IS EVEN ALLOWED TO SUGGEST THIS AS A POSSIBLE CAUSE, OF THIS EXTREME VIOLENCE, ARE WE?
