Whether Ford Econoline, Honda “soccer mom” minivans, passenger vans, Baltimore police vans, or windowless Dodge vans, these vehicles are the weapon of choice by serial killers, kidnappers, and rapists. Some of the worst serial murderers in history, such as Jeffrey Dahmer, Robert Lee Yates, Ian Brady and Myra Hinsley, Charlene and Gerald Gallego, and Lonnie David Franklin, all used vans as their preferred equipment.

There’s a lot of misleading rhetoric out there by pro-van lobbyists and members of the NSVA (National Street Van Association) who claim that vans are a harmless hobby and an essential vehicle for keeping our streets safer. But the constant stories of atrocities in the news are unavoidable. If we are hearing about it more, then it must be happening more. More than 948 people in the U.S. have been killed by serial killers since 2006, which is higher than mass shootings. How many people have die before we finally institute a van ban?
