    if your workplace ignores them, then the union ought to be taking action.  Fact of the matter is, there's some robust regulation to reduce deaths here.

    yes, there are small scale buybacks, but state and federal efforts to reduce gun deaths are woefully inadequate.  The fact of the matter is, unlike the others, we have a well-drmonstrated and simple policy to massively reduce deaths that we do not pursue.  True, we could reduce the speed limit to 55 again, which would help reduce traffic deaths (and well we should), but in none of these other areas do I see a policy proposal that would reduce deaths by tens of thousands a people a year that we simply ignore  (for that, our next best comparison is probably the lack of regulation of coal plants, actually.  We think those deahts are ok too.)

    Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.
