Don’t be a victim
These studies show that alcohol directly contributes to violence of all kinds in ways you might not imagine. To heck with gun control—let’s do something about the beer! While the numbers reveal that people are far more likely to commit violent crimes while drinking, they also show that we’re more likely to be victims of domestic violence if we’re under the influence.
On the other hand, seven out of 10 murder victims were not under the influence at the time of the crime. So, maybe having a few drinks is the best way to stave off that unwelcome bout of homicide.
A logical fallacy, you say? Hey, you do what you want, but we’re not taking any chances. Bartender!
