Because of the historical increase nationwide of drunken driving death of innocent people young and old, the governor signed legislation into law last night known as the Alcohol Driver Safety Act 2013. Immediately, every individual who wants to consume and/or purchase alcohol must register with the State. After a thorough background investigation ascertaining that the applicant does not have any prior alcohol related violation, the applicant will be issued an Alcohol Drinking Permit (Permit). A Permit must be presented for inspection as required if the individual wants to purchase and/or consume alcohol. A state database will be maintained of all Permit holders. Permit renewal will be required every five years and disclosure of the amount and type of alcohol in their possession at the time will be mandated. Alcohol purchased must be through a licensed vendor who is registered with the state. Before sale, the vendor must run a background check of the buyer through the local police department for prior alcohol related violations. The vendor must also report the sale to a new state database. Private sales will still be allowed but the seller must have a state licensed alcohol vendor perform a background check of the buyer through the local police department prior to the sale. The law provides exception for the sale to a spouse or child provided they are Permit holders. Internet purchase of alcohol will be illegal unless shipped to a state licensed vendor. There will be a limit on the amount of alcohol and the type of alcohol a permit holder can purchase. Alcohol having a 100 Proof or more will be illegal to possess and purchase. Anyone having alcohol 100 Proof or more have up to 12 months to sell them to out-of-state individuals or licensed vendors. Anyone in possession of alcohol 100 Proof or more could face felony charges. Anyone having possession of alcohol 80 Proof or more will be grandfathered in provided they register it with the state police within 12 months. The new stricter regulation for alcohol will be limited to 70 Proof or less. If anyone feels this is outrageous, just think how legal responsible gun owners feel about the new laws just passed in New York. Drunk driving kills more innocent lives and amass millions of dollars of property damage every year. The problem with drunken driving and gun violence is the same. The only difference is in drunken driving accidents all of the lives lost other than the drivers’ are of innocent people. Gang violence, drug dealing and criminal use of guns are everyday occurrence all over the United States. It makes up most of the gun violence in the United States. The media distorts the facts because they only cover tragedies involving innocent victims. In addition, the assault rifle which is the primary issue of recent gun control debate is the least cause of gun violence as per statistics. Check it out for yourself in the Office of Justice Programs, National Institute of Justice, a Department of Justice web site, as well as, the FBI statistics website that our leaders, lawmakers and everyone has access to. Hopefully this will shed some light as to the unjust treatment legal responsible gun owners are being subjected to.
