Democratic Party DRAFT Platform Gun Violence Prevention YES But Vehicle Violence Prevention NO

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

The DRAFT Democrat Platform contains the following subjects:

    • “Ensure the Health and Safety of All Americans
    • Universal Health Care
    • Community Health Centers
    • Prescription Drug Costs
    • Medical Research
    • Drug and Alcohol Addiction
    • Mental Health
    • Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice
    • Public Health
    • Violence Against Women and Sexual Assault
On page 25 one can read:“Gun Violence Prevention
With 33,000 Americans dying every year, Democrats believe that we must finally take sensible
action to address gun violence. While gun ownership is part of the fabric of many communities,
too many families in America have suffered from gun violence. We can respect the rights of
responsible gun owners while keeping our communities safe. We will expand background checks
and close dangerous loopholes in our current laws, hold irresponsible dealers and manufacturers
accountable, keep weapons of war—such as assault weapons—off our streets, and ensure guns
do not fall into the hands of terrorists, domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and those with

severe mental health issues.”

Hmnn…. Both are important.  But NHTSA has recorded a 9.3 % increase in fatalities in early 2015 to a level of nearly 35,000 Americans dying every year now.  In addition, every day nearly twice as many Americans suffer serious injuries such as brain and spinal cord paralysis due to vehicle violence than to gun violence.  See why are Democrats so silent on ending vehicle violence?Campaign finance money?Automotive (Dems & Reps): $15 million See

Gun Control (Dems): $1.7 million in 2015   See Rights (Republicans): $11 million in 2015  See

So what are Americans who are concerned with ending vehicle violence to do this election year?
