However if we start allowing folks to simply pop a cap in a drunk driver's knot... Well I'm not sure that's a path we want to go down... because where does it stop?
i dont know personally, but gun laws havent stopped violence and fines havent stopped it. So neither are the answers, sorry if thats to blunt i dont try to make it sound that way.
Trust me not trying to come off that i know more. Smply getting your view point and i like the conversation.
And now that some of this is going thru my head with another persons POV, i dont even think anything i would try would be the answer. But i can say the guy gave a few people pause about getting behind the wheel.
I know this because some people have shocked me by saying they agree with me that "the innocent didnt ask for it" and that the drunk person did take a life and maybe it should be considered that their life is forfiet."
Do i hav ethe answer that will work, no, can i judge this guy, definetly not. Can we allow it to go on, possibly not, but there is something said for vigiliatnism and possibly the threat of it will deter some of the results.
