    If Ford or GM tried to sell this vehicle, promoting is as the ultimate in offensive driving with 'Military Style' upgrades.

    [​IMG]

    ...the MPG is too low to take on the freeway or long trips. Most big cities have banned it, it's illegal in several states, and you need a special permit in others. It's too noise for hunting. It's only real purpose is killing and maiming large groups of people.

    And the kicker... if you buy it a car show, you don't have to register it or have your driving record checked.

    Lastly, a ton of after market upgrades are available, which would make the vehicle illegal everywhere, but make it more efficient at killing.

    The typical owner is someone who doesn't trust the Highway Patrol.



    This is a proper analogy.

    I can buy or assemble that and drive it on my land and never a license, approval or registration.

    Is driving a vehicle a right that is guaranteed by the Constitution?

    Yep. Buy any car you want, no registration, no insurance, no license, on your own property and it is legal.

    But, should you be required to have a license, registration AND insurance on a gun if you take it off your property?

    Is pursuit of happiness, or commerce, part of driving? Right wingers love those clauses.


    BUT.....I admit, you got me on that one. No, the Constitution doesn't guarantee a right to drive.

    Because the Founders had never seen a car, and probably couldnt imagine the idea of a car, with a gas engine, propulsion, etc, etc. So they obviously wouldnt include it, just like they wouldnt include the right to fly an airplane.

    And I bet back then, they couldnt fathom anything other than a musket, especially a civilian owned firearm that could fire 30 rounds within 10 seconds or less.

    Oh....see what I did right there?:D

    No. You can be sued from your negligent actions and misuse of a firearm like any other inherently dangerous object.

    Yes didn't take into consideration the settled incorporated affirmation of Heller Vs DC.
