    Why not just equip all cars with a breathalyzer interlock?

    And that is the seductive danger of collectivist progressive thinking--the desire to protect others from themselves. But we can't assume that we know what is best for others without allowing others to assume they know what is best for us. Well, we can, but then we would be elitists which is a different seduction.

    Because someone could get drunk and harm the children in other ways (without using a vehicle).

    I personally hate this idea as you are hoping they are not so stupid as to go with what you said. This is by no means something I would feel safe betting on.

    Of course, government standards will determine what constitutes a satisfactory mental health screening...

    There is a limiter in motorcycles (at least in sport bikes). Mine wouldn't let me go over 186 mph (I was on a speed track not street). I guess we could say that the manufacture did limit it.

    "Poison pills" presuppose that, due to their presence, the underlying bills won't pass. What we need are pro-gun bills that will actually pass.

    Unfortunately, for many of our esteemed representatives, the "pro-gun" part would be the poison pill... :scrutiny:
