Drunk driving not prerequisite for car crashes

In response to the guest column “Guns are not a prerequisite for violence,” I will simply restate the main gist of the column using a different societal problem.

Car crashes are caused by things other than drunk driving. In fact, throughout history many many car crashes have other, completely different, causes. Therefore, trying to outlaw a specific individual behavior, such as drunk driving, will solve nothing. We’re merely chasing our tails with that approach.

Thus, simply restating his premise in a different way makes it clearly evident how meaningless his argument on the problem of mass shootings really is.
