    And if the government took your cars away there would be no more car fatalities either.

    There is a price to pay for freedom. The safest place, assuming they don't let you get raped continually and beaten, is prison.

    In fact, prison is a left winged paradise. Everything is divided up equally among everyone else and everything is paid for by the tax payers.

    And just think, every day is gay pride day.

    There are vast millions of people in the US who have not experienced a shooting 'massacre' since 1996 either, when the US did not change any gun laws.

    the mysteries of life, must be because "Everybody Loves Raymond" started in 1996.

    How frequent were gun massacres in Australia prior to the Port Arthur shooting massacre?

    We need cars. Most Americans don't need guns.

    No you don't.

    All you need is a bicycle, a train, a cab, a bus, etc.

    Or you can just get off your lazy bum and walk.

    Only half of the adults in NYC even have a driver's license.

    Oh right, I forgot how the right has mastered semantic b.s. How about cars are extremely useful, while guns usually are not.

    By that logic one could argue that Americans don't need guns, they could use sticks and stones. The constitution doesn't say "guns" it says "arms".

    Doesn't say guns it says arms is perfect liberal dribble. I congratulate you on you on your ability to apply liberal ideology in the modern world.

    Is that worse than conservatives saying that banning guns (which do nothing but kill) is equal to banning cars? Because at least Divegeester's logic isn't fallacious.

    Yes that would be a lot, it's nearly the entire population of the US.
