According to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, alcohol abuse kills 79,000 people a year.

The same report found that alcohol abuse costs the U.S. economy $224 billion a year. Let us not forget that more than half of domestic violence cases and as many as 90 percent of child abuse cases involve alcoholism, according to a survey by Priory Healthcare, a rehab center. Girls in alcoholic homes are four times more likely to suffer sexual abuse. Children who grow up in an alcoholic home continue to suffer deep emotional and behavioral damage into adulthood.

This illustrates the hypocrisy of those advocating stricter gun control for the sake of saving American lives and creating a more civil, less violent society. If these are the objectives, bring back prohibition.
