That's because cars have good and valid uses in society. Handguns and automatic and semi-automatic weapons have one use and that's to kill people - something that should not encouraged. Hunting rifles are usually one or two shot weapons which gives the animal a chance to escape if you miss.
Furthermore, car manufacturers are required by law to include numerous safety features to reduce loss of life in the event of an accident, like seat belts, air bags, better braking systems, and now collision avoidance technology. Gun manufacturers are under no restrictions.
You also have to have a license to drive a car. You must prove you're competent to drive a car before you get your license, and if you prove that you aren't capable of following the rules of the road, that privilege will be taken away from you. None of which applies to guns.
Any attempt to improve the safety of having guns in your midst, of having background checks, or competency tests is met with a wall of resistance by the NRA. If you're on the "no fly list", you can buy a gun. You can't buy a ticket to ride on an airplane, but you can buy a gun.
If you've been institutionalized as a danger to yourself or others you can buy a gun. The idea that there are no checks or balances on who can buy guns and what kind of weapons they can buy is absolutely ridiculous.
This isn't protecting society in any measurable way regardless of what the NRA tells you. If guns were really keeping people safe the United States would be the safest country in the world instead of the most dangerous in the first world.
