    How bout this? Treat guns exactly like cars; no worse, no better.

    To carry a gun anywhere outside your home, you must:

    1- Have a license. If you drive a car without license, you go to jail. Lets make it the same with a gun. Must have proof with you.

    2- Must register the car. Many states dont require gun registry. But do for cars. Make all guns be registered with the state, just like a car. Must have proof with you.

    3- Gun Insurance. Yep. You must have liability insurance on the gun. Just like a car. If you accidentally shoot someone, you pay up...er, well, the insurance company pays up. Get caught outside your home with a gun, and no insurance? Go to jail, just like a car.



    You can buy a car without a license, park it in your driveway, not register it, and carry no insurance on it, and its legal. You just cant drive it off your property.

    Treat guns the same. Buy your guns for your home.

    But take them anywhere off your property, and you must have a license, registration and insurance, just like a car.

    Afterall, a car, like a gun....is just a tool, not a killing machine, unless being operated by the wrong person.

    Fair enough?

    How about this:

    FUCK OFF.

    Guns are protected by the Bill of Rights. Cars aren't.

    I have no need to register My rights before government. The Constitution agrees with Me.

    How about

    1. No

    2. No

    3. No

    This is the dumbest fucking argument I've heard yet, by the way, on this subject. You have a Constitutional right to bear arms. No such right exists to drive an automobile.

    By the way, is this proposal going around on the left wing Web sites and social media, because a very "liberal" buddy of mine back home just posed this exact same thing to me earlier today?

    Hmmmm. Yep, you guys got me. You're right. The Constitution doesnt say anything about cars.

    Because...the Founder rode around on horses. Cars didnt exist. They probably couldnt even fathom the thought of a car or airplane.

    And, I bet they couldnt fathom anything other than muskets and cannons.......much less AK47s or M4s that fire 30 rounds in 10 seconds.

    See how that works? You guys have to stop trying to govern like we are living in the 1790's still.

    OH, guess what? The Constitution doesnt say anything about child porn or heroine or crack cocaine or abortions either. Should all that be legal?

    No. The founders were well aware of the evolution of weapons in the world history. The assertion that they could not foresee weapons of greater lethality is absurd on its face.

    As for planes and cars. The same argument applies. They knew and understood mankind's desire to fly and would assume sooner or later, we'd find a way. They were already familiar with the evolution of transportation from foot, to mule, to horse, to wagon....it is not unreasonable to figure they'd think that things would continue to improve.

    I don't know why modern people continue to think that the Founding Fathers, or people of the early 19th century were utter morons.

    They didnt have the Internet, television, or radio, either. Maybe you should get a license before going on the Internet.
