Take Emotion Out Of The Equation

ASSAULT VEHICLE
It' s black, , ll, Torii. was clearly designed to
kill innocent people by enabling the driver to exceed
the legal speed limit by over 100 mph.
32, 367 people raikiri' L' jil killed
on the roadways in 2011. Americans don' t need 470 HP.
If civilians had them, they could use them to flee the scene
of crimes and outrun the police. If we restrict cars to go
only , then the police can catch criminals mere
easily and we' ll be a lot safer.
Cmon car nuts, we' re not banning cars, we' re just
limiting the types of cars you can buy. You can be happy
with your Cereal's and Station wagons.
NOTE: This was meant to be sarcasm illustrating the
fallacies of statist logic.

To be honest...that's a compelling argument. There's no real reason why cars should be able to go faster than the speed limit...

There's a group on facebook specifically for "Banning the Ford Mustang"   
I actually laughed out loud.    
What's next? Taking away computers because it "Encourages freedom to navigate the web and see things that are morally wrong"?   
Oh 						****					 me that sounds too legit.

A car is made to get you from A to B
A gun is made to kill people

Cars only kill people if you use them wrong...

guns kill people when they are used because someone did something wrong too.

Road deaths per 100,000 in USA = 10.3
Gun deaths per 100,000 in USA = 10.2
Probably the only rich nation where the gun death rate is as high as the transport sector.
For comparison.
Road deaths per 100,000 in NZ = 8.6
Gun deaths per 100,000 in NZ = 2.66
Road deaths per 100,000 in UK = 3.59
Gun deaths per 100,000 in UK = 0.25

Low hanging fruit......

Op i think this post back fired on you, while you were trying to make it sound dumb to regulate cars it actually brought out a good argument.

One problem: The only purpose, the ONLY purpose, guns serve is to injure or kill other people. Yes cars are dangerous and yes they can kill people but their purpose is transportation and it's an acceptable risk to use them for most people, the same risk you face walking down the stairs every morning or taking a swim at the beach hoping jaws doesn't eat you.

I have debated this topic several times since last weeks shooting on one of my pages, basing my various arguments on the problem we have with illegal gun trafficking, backed the notion that illegalizing guns would make it impossible for one to defend themselves against one weilding an illegally obtained gun.

While I generally prevailed, I was continually countered with the point that Australia and the UK have much lower gun violence than us. I was also pointed to the fact those countries carry gun bans. Most of the people throwing this at me assumed that this was solely because of the gun bans, and that instituting one in the US would make a huge difference. I countered by saying while it would make a difference, it isn't always a good one. The illegal gun trafficking here is much worse than in most countries, and a gun ban cannot be practical until it is under control. In our current state of affairs with gun trafficking, a gun ban would only serve to be counter productive. Of course at the time, this was only an educated assumption i was making based on logic.

That being said, here is a study that not only proves my points, but disproves the only reasonable counter argument I encountered in a three day long debate.

From a britfags point of view of never owning a gun. I understand that it is an american way of life to be aloud to have a gunvfor personal protection. I dont think the answer is taking away guns all together, but just better enforcement of how they get distribute and to whom. Armed guards wouldnt go a miss at schools either.

here in chile gas is really expensive.
only the richest buy cars as such, so you don´t see lots of big engines on the streets.
get a load of this: 1 liter of 95 octanes is 810 pesos. that's 1,7 dollars.
PER LITER!
anything beyond a 2.0 engine is considered a big engine. it's really a bummer for car lovers like me
#52 to #42 - anonymous (12/24/2012) [-]
Here in Denmark its about 2 dollars per liter ):
