The death count from cars exceeds that from guns. So if you are outraged by guns and want things to change, you should feel the same about car crashes.

    Technology creates an opportunity to save lives. Computers don’t get drowsy, drunk or distracted by text messages, and they don’t have blind spots. Just look at commercial airlines: Automation has helped all but eliminate fatal crashes among American air carriers. The last one happened in 2009.

My mind is so made up and decided that automated vehicles are going to be the norm that I don't even think of things like this as news.
