Sorry sir, but I can't be held responsible for those deaths because I was black out drunk and don't remember driving my truck home from the bar.
Of course no one should be loaning or allowing someone to gamble if they are incredibly intoxicated. But I handle my liquor so well and drink so much that I was still walking straight and coherent after blowing a .34, so someone needs to take responsibility...to me he should. Gambling drunk isn't an excuse. If he won $500,000 would he pay the money back?
