(unfortunately not sure who to credit, but what follow is not mine)
1967 - Jayne Mansfield is killed when her car runs under the rear end of a tractor trailer. Since then, all trailers have a DOT bar at the rear to keep cars from going under them.
1982 - Seven people die when Tylenol packaging was tampered with. Since then, it takes a PhD, channel locks, and a sharp object to get into a bottle of pills.
2001 - One person attempts to blow up a plane with a shoe bomb. Since then, all air travelers have to take off their shoes for scanning before being allowed to board.
Since 1968 - 1,516,863 people die from guns on American soil. Since then, the problem apparently can't be solved except with thoughts and prayers.
Why do you think this is?
We need to stop letting the NRA hold us hostage ... at gunpoint!
