Re “Autopilot tied to hundreds of crashes” (June 16):
As a Tesla owner, I always browse posts about autopilot safety. I was dismayed that your organization write-up implied that autopilot cars and trucks have been unsafe. NHTS reviews 38,824 people today died from site visitors incidents in 2020 but you make out that six deaths in autopilot outfitted cars is so significant that it justifies a large compose up. Similarly 392 crashes must have been in comparison to the in excess of six million yearly U.S. crashes, a tiny fraction of the complete. You should be advocating the protection of autopilot autos as a way to decrease the six million crashes and practically forty thousand fatalities. Each and every write-up have to existing data in context.

Much more new gun management legislation
Re “Bill would make gun entrepreneurs obtain protection for their weapons” (June 17):
Two additional expenses have surfaced to “fix the gun challenge.” SB 505 will force gun entrepreneurs to get liability insurance for accidental or negligent use of their firearms. There are many problems with this. No insurance policy corporation in their ideal minds would ever concern such a plan. And if the gun was stolen and used how would the rightful owner establish that? In the end, if it passed, it would demand the point out governing administration to carry the insurance policy, producing one more high-priced office and still a lot more infringements on Second Amendment rights. AB 1227 would impose an additional 10% excise tax on firearm and ammunition profits and direct the cash (estimated at $118 million) to be employed by a different state committee towards “gun violence avoidance programs.” In each individual circumstance, these legislation will punish gun entrepreneurs and probable gun homeowners for possessing guns, relatively than addressing the issue of building criminals who use guns topic to really serious prison time and private legal responsibility for their crimes. You should notify your point out senator and representative to vote no on these even further infringements on our personalized legal rights.

California requires new leadership
Re “Dems in risky guess to aid GOP extremists” (June 17):
As I browse sthat there are Democrats advertising and marketing considerably-right candidates so they can probably set on their own up in opposition to an opponent in November who may possibly be a lot easier to defeat, I ponder, will we at any time again be equipped to have religion that those people in elected business will get the job done to serve citizens in a method that most benefits those citizens, fairly than devote all their energies to just currently being re-elected? Conversely, will voters at large at any time acquire critically unearthing the most certified prospect alternatively than just vote for their party’s decision? In this article in California, Democratic management has turned our state into a wasteland of difficulties, higher taxes, rampant homelessness, out-of-management housing and border control difficulties, ceaseless over-regulation and folks keep on re-electing the same people today with the similar flawed plan ideas. These two big difficulties go hand-in-hand, and it is disheartening.

Jan. 6 riot
Re “Are you observing the Property hearings” (June 14):
I have been watching and hope people who have believed Trump’s lies are seeing also. I am proud of Liz Cheney and come to feel she represents the sort of Republican Party I agree with.
I imagine the Very pleased Boys ended up emboldened by Trumps phone to prevent the verification of the election. I favored a good deal of the changes Trump produced when he was in business concerning striving to make us considerably less dependent on international oil, the Supreme Courtroom appointees, and significantly less electrical power to agencies hindering business enterprise. Nonetheless, I do not want him to run yet again mainly because of what occurred on Jan. 6. The functions of Jan. 6 are inconsistent with the peaceful transfer of power our country need to have.
