The Ford example is a poor one. For one thing, the intended use of an automobile is not to injure anyone. A Bushmaster .223, however, is clearly designed to attack people. It’s a lousy (stupid) weapon for hunting…assuming you’re trying to kill for food or trophy. Its intended use is completely different. Also, much like gun training, etc., there are tests and licenses required and penalties. And interestingly, due to the damage a driver might potentially cause, we do mandate insurance. (Gasp!) And seeing as there’s no implied nor stated right in the Constitution to own a car, but there is for firearms, I’d have no problem with tighter restrictions. Considering the rest of the civilized world over the past 20 years has 0.22 gun deaths per 100,000 people, and we have something like 3.7 deaths per 100,000 from firearms–17 times as many!–what is the rest of the world doing right that we aren’t? Ask yourself that question.
And you don’t have to worry about protecting yourself from this BHO voter, LLM: you’re not worth the trouble to bother.
