Comparing Cars and Guns

The New York Times is comparing cars and guns. They say that since cars kill more people than guns and are a universally recognized “privilege,” and are “regulated,” we should similarly regulate guns. That might be true if their “regulation” did ANYTHING to reduce gun deaths. In any case, owning and using cars is not a RIGHT guaranteed by the Constitution, as are guns. Therefore, the reasoning is a lot different between them. It's comparing apples and oranges. Regulation of cars has done nothing to reduce deaths by car, and has proven itself to be unable to reduce gun deaths, too. Yet they insist on making more and more of their USELESS laws that inhibit gun ownership and usage—the very thing the 'Constitution PROHIBITS. It says, “The right of American citizens to be armed shall NOT be infringed!” What is there about “shall not be infringed” that they not understand? The fact is, there is NO comparison between cars and guns, no matter how hard they work to compare them. (New York Times)
