Assault Truck Violence is a Pandemic
Nobody needs a quarter ton for hunting.
Assault trucks go buck-wild on the streets of Houston.
HOUSTON – A car slammed into a home in The Heights on Sunday, and neighbors in the area say speed is to blame.
The home on White Oak Drive and Usener Street was destroyed in the crash, leaving the renters without a home.
A white truck on White Oak Drive?
That’s white privilege.
One person was inside the vehicle when it plowed into the front end.
Timothy Fletcher rents the home and says the driver came down the road, uprooted a tree, and crashed into his house.
Fletcher and many neighbors say people speed down the road all the time and something needs to be done.
Mr. Fletcher is right, something needs to be done. How many more landscape massacres must we endure?
Congress should act now to get these assault vehicles off the streets. This isn’t about good guys with cars vs. bad guys with cars. The driver of this assault vehicle purchased it LEGALLY.
No one needs a Ford-150 or a Toyota Corolla for hunting. The sole purpose of these vehicles is to take as many lives as possible. Over 43,000 people died in assault vehicle incidents in 2021 alone.
For example, The Hummer H2 is a civilian version of the military-grade Hummer H1 family of vehicles that are designed to deliver maximum impact, over any terrain, at high velocity in order to inflict catastrophic and lethal wounds.
The Assualt Vehicles can, therefore, inflict more harm on more people in a shorter period of time.
You would see drastic reductions in what I call “vehicular massacres” if a federal assault vehicles ban was instituted immediately. Why do you need a Hyundai Sonata when a bicycle gets you were you need to go perfectly well?
It’s time to give them up Texas.
