He's right. This has always pissed me off personally.

12 people get shot in a school and it's the end of the world (which it is) but 3,000+ die EACH MONTH and it's completely ignored.

And the penalties are nil. An old geezer killed someone on a bicycle and got a whopping $80 fine - until the local community revolted and she got 3mos in jail - 3 months for killing someone!
