Now, this isn't to say that driving drunk is at all a good idea. I, and most people, consider it immoral. I am fine with public pressure against drunk driving. I don't think that government should be able to punish you for something in which there was no victim.
They aren't trying to ban alcohol, they are trying to punish an act while under the influence of alcohol.


Carrying your gun through town = good

Shooting your gun randomly in town = bad

Drinking = good

Drinking and driving = bad
