Why is the left dumb enough, to TRY and ban guns, but not cars?

Road rage kills more people than gun violence!

You're not comparing like with like.

Essentially a gun is a devise specifically designed and manufactured to kill.

Okay, we'll hear from the smart Alecs about game hunting, target shooting and the likes but nevertheless a gun's main function is to kill.

Motorized vehicles are manufactured and marketed as a means of transport and are designed to minimize the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an ACCIDENT.

Private and commercial vehicles are essential in today's world to transport all types of goods including food stuffs and vital medicines as well as conveying sick people to hospitals.

Guns are not an essential part of the average person's lifestyle

I trust you can see the difference.

The point is that a car in the wrong hands can be a weapon as well. The drunk driving deaths are hideous, but do you hear the Left screaming for back ground checks before selling alcohol to these fools who would drink and drive?

NO, IT'S ALL ABOUT TAKING OUR GUNS! It has nothing to do with saving lives!

You put alcohol with a car, and you have a deadly weapon! Where are the back ground checks for repeat DWI's?

These people who lose their licences still drive drunk! Only back ground checks would stop them from buying that alcohol and driving. But of course those on the Left also drink, so they do not want to be inconvenienced or pay more for those back ground checks.

It's not about saving lives!

I'm not for back ground checks before buying alcohol, but I'm showing you the hypocrisy of these fool Liberals who want to take our guns.

Thanks for your reply but I cannot agree with the premise that there is a correlation between an assassin who buys a gun, the principle function of which is to kill and an irresponsible driver whose recklessness results in death.

The assassin bought a gun specifically to kill someone with a weapon the sole purpose of which is to commit murder.

The driver didn't intend to kill anyone and his vehicle wasn't designed as a weapon.

The outcome of both scenarios result in death but, generally speaking one was cold blooded murder (like intentional abortion) while the other is accidental ( like unintentional miscarriage, say by falling down a flight of stairs) .

I trust you can recognise the wide difference between the two, very separate issues.

That’s not true at all .....there are more than 1,200 incidents of road rage on average reported per year in the United States. A large number of these incidents have ended with serious injuries or even fatalities.

Only a proportion of them are fatalities.

As a country you have more guns than people and you think this normal?

Is it normal to be so terrified in your country that you need a gun in case your house alarm doesn’t work?

Is it normal for a child to think he or she could get shot in school?

Is it normal to need to carry a gun to go to the local mall?

Maybe yous are worried about the government turning tyrannical or maybe commies or the big bad wolf?

You’s are rated 121st least peaceful country in the world and the tragedy is you’s call yourself an 83 per cent Christian nation yet you’s own more guns than any other country in the world.

What the fuck are you’s so paranoid about terrified to live in your own county without being tooled up ...wow

Yes it is true. People are more likely to die in a care accident, than a shooting. You are missing the point. The point is people die in shootings, and car accidents, yet not all drivers or gun owners are violent people. Owning a gun or driving a car are basic human rights. You tell me if I don't like abortion, don't have one? If you don't like guns, don't own one. Abolishing guns means more people will die in home invasions. Is that what the far left wants?

Yes, owning a gun in this country IS a basic right, as is owning a car. Road rage accidents, of which there are many, are ACTUALLY actions by "mentally ill people".

You have to be licensed AND trained to use one … pass a test, even! Not so with a gun.

Few people want to "abolish guns". The 2nd Amendment gives us the "right to bear arms" … it DOES NOT say we have the right to bear ANY weapon we want! It says we need a "well regulated militia", we DO, it's called the National Guard! I do not consider a militant POSSE a well regulated militia! They make their OWN "regulations"!

Todays technology is making "home invasions" very risky. Tiny security cameras, motion detectors, phone alarms and remote visuals will discourage more "invasions" than a gun! The far left (and even the near left ;-) wants a peaceful country …. kind of like the rest of the modern world! More than a hundred other countries do NOT have anywhere NEAR the "protective" guns the U,S, has, and they have FAR fewer "invasions" and deaths …. apparently less "mental disease" also! Hmmmm , maybe Trump's driving U.S. crazy???? :-(

What the literal fuck????

I am just simply STUNNED by your ignorance.

The reason you have home invasions in America in the first place is because you have legalised guns.

I live in the UK and guess what? Very few home invasions.

. Abolishing guns means more people will die in home invasions. Is that what the far left wants?

So Americans cannot afford house alarms?

Criminals now buy a gun to break into a house and maybe get an I pad and a wallet, where do you yanks get this bulllshit?

Most intelligent people fear a drunk driver FAR MORE then the chances of being killed by some nutcase in a mass shooting!

Do the numbers on drunk driving fatalities and mass shooting deaths. After doing so, IGNORE ME because anti gun nuts like you are too dishonest to admit the obvious.

But we both know this is not about saving lives! IT'S ALL ABOUT TAKING OUR GUNS!

Most intelligent people rules you out that’s for certain , also how did you find even one amongst Trump supporters Seems you Americans live in a constant state of fear. So tell me what’s the logic in allowing drunks own guns let alone cars?

The American Left cannot ban guns it is just a pipe dream for them. Leftist in Washington,DC cannot control private gun sales even if they tried. Check out prohibition and see how well that worked out.
