This article ran on KSL titled State investigators to determine if bar is liable in weekend crash on March 24th. While this is not firearms or 2nd amendment related, I do see a parallel. Please read the article before you read on.
Upon my first read I really started to feel this was another typical, blame everyone else for the actions of a few. Very quickly I started to realize that I was not alone in my angst towards a program called T.R.A.C.E. This is an investigative team that tracks the source of the alcohol consumed to determine what liability they may hold in a crash. The comments related to this article made be proud because everyone one of them I read, indicated that the sole person responsible for this accident was the driver. The person that decided to consume alcohol and then behind the wheel of a vehicle.
The parallel that I drew was with how we have taken responsibility for our own safety and obtained our permit to not rely on anyone else for personal safety. I will not get started on why anti-gun people argue to blame the gun for a shooting.
Maybe my next blog needs to be about how many people get killed falling of a trails while hiking in the mountains each year and the need to hand rails on all the paths. I jest but that’s how ridiculous programs like T.R.A.C.E. are.
