    They tried it… and it didn’t work. There are a couple of amendments to the constitution regarding it.

    Wiki Prohibition and see what you find…

    Legislating morality is a lost cause… big lesson that comes out of it.

    Aren’t MOST laws essentially ‘legislating morality’?

    And I’m not one who is arguing for a return to prohibition, but when it comes to cause/effect relationships and the deaths of humans, alcohol has to be right up there near the top of contributing causes. From that perspective, the OP has got it right that guns are nowhere near the threat to human life that alcohol (and other things as already pointed out) is.

    Any law that is passed is an infringement on your personal liberty… but the other side of that in anarchy, and not the fun hipster anarchy that most youth get misty eyed over. Legislation that dictates morality is a different concept.

    Isn’t “do not steal” a moral constraint?

    I’m not sure I’m up for the full philosophical tilt about Gov’t and the ethical and moral bases on which it is founded. I’m also not willing to equate taxes with stealing… but I’d agree it feels like it sometimes. On the tax issue, if you gain any benefit from Federal or State services… you should be paying taxes. The ROI on the taxes you pay or who should be paying and how much are topics for a different day.

    Cars kill more people than alcohol and guns. What’s the answer there?

    In a nutshell, the answer to all our problems is called “responsibility”. People need to be responsible for their actions and their kids. We don’t need the government to tell us how we can live…[/quote:9ezr5ae5]
