    This is not a satire site. I had to check after I saw the headline

    Sawant calls for speed bumps to curb drive-by shootings in Central District

    Councilmember Kshama Sawant proposed a handful of measures to combat recent gun violence in Seattle’s Central District Tuesday, including a ban on semi-automatic weapons, and adding speed bumps to 21st Avenue.

    The measures were proposed during a committee meeting chaired by Sawant. In that meeting, she looked to address outstanding issues related to gun violence in the Central District, following a fatal shooting last Friday at the intersection of 21st Avenue East and East Union Street.

    That area has been no stranger to frequent gun violence, with Sawant citing three separate drive-by shootings along 21st during this current school year alone. With that in mind, the council member pointed to feedback from constituents regarding some possible solutions.

    Wouldn't a slower speed just make the accuracy of the shots higher? Seems bad.

    Just line the street with democrats. Cheaper and easier than installing speed bumps. Jack.

    This combined with ripping Bumpstocks from the hands of gun-owners should save thousands of lives... o_O

    Just use the dead bodies as speed bumps.

    Personally, I think speed bumps would be just as effective against violence as new laws would be.

    As usual, another democrat socialist addressing everything but the real problem at hand.

    Why not just close the way to vehicular traffic, at least that would STOP drive bys completely.
