And when alcohol was abolished, there were not any more alcohol, correct. Can someone quote statistics on which causes more deaths. And since drinking and driving is a crime, we stop people at their first offence, right.

Yes drinking and driving is a crime...and yes people are arrested on their first offense. So what is your point? Alcohol is not produced to kill people. It is abused..people go to jail for drinking and driving. And because you asked...in 2010 there were 10,228 deaths due to dui...over 34000 due to gun violence. So there ya go!
