    They love to ask what legitimate purpose is served by assault rifles but same can be asked of cars that do 200 mph or 150 or 100. Why do we let people have cars DESIGNED to go way over the legal speed limit?

    I can never understand what the fuck you're talking about when you make these threads.

    Are you claiming that the Republican party supports banning cars that can go faster than the speed limit (every single car in the world)?

    Where do "Democrats" come into play here?

    Oh you understand what i'm saying perfectly. You just don't have a rebuttal. You oppose gun homicide but think it's cool to drive 150 mph and couldn't care less how many kids you run over.

    Are you in favor of gun homicide?

    I repeat, I have no idea what you're talking about here. I don't even drive.

    Even cars driven at legal speeds of 55mph will kill. But the car's main purpose is a mode of transportation.

    I get what he is saying - there is no point having a car that has a maximum speed of 240kmph when the maximum legal limit is 120kmph.

    You could lower the speedo to make all cars travel no faster than the maximum legal limit allowed, but that could mean the car itself loses power - especially when driving up a steep hill.

    That's not true at all. Cars could easily be made with the same acceleration they have now but a much lower top speed.
