I quite agree, although driving while drunk is not an appropriate addition to any "necessary evil". I'm guessing here but even a "legally drunk"
when they have been drinking and thus drives by intension.
This point is that when a disturbed man-child has access to firearms and ammunition and the drinking person has access to keys and vehicle, then drives, the results can be equally tragic. Of course there's a difference, but the victims of a bad outcome are still, well, still the victims. I think the generally is woefully ignorant of firearms and firearm laws - this is, I know, a generalization yet I believe to be true.
I do of course do see and largely agree with you.
