But the whole ball started downhill not because hammers are dangerous but because yet another 'gun' defender- EROD went waaaaaaaaay overboard. He said "gun' violence' and claimed Illinois had far more than Texas- which is false. Then a flying column of spinners came in trying desperately to change the subject.
Fact- more people die from 'gun' violence in Texas than in Illinois.
Now cars are highly restricted, from the design- see anymore cars with their engines in the back like the old Corvair or VW Bug? No sir you don't- deemed unsafe that design is no longer permitted.
Speed limits and not just out on the highway but every public access road has them and the limits come in a myriad of levels.
Seatbelts- try and buy a car without one.
Airbags, and crash tests done by the Gubmint for safety ratings.
Smog emissions- many states have inspections to regulate the pollution a car can produce
Safety inspections before the vehicle can legally be driven, most states require a special sticker on the windshield.
EPA MPG ratings- though a mythical number and some gas guzzlers don't get rated when was the last time you saw a new car without one?
Insurance- can you legally drive without it?
You have to have a license to operate a vehicle, and there isn't just one type either.
And as new problems arise so too do restrictions- many states are banning texting and driving- some even just using a cell phone at all.
So vehicles are highly regulated, far more so than firearms- do you want to see firearms regulated to the same level? Then admit vehicles are far more regulated and drop that flawed dodge. Not only that, new laws increasing that regulation while you operate one are routine. That YOU are not calling for more car regulations isn't the point- and that is yet another pro-'gun' dodge- show me where I called for more 'gun' regulations- please do that. (you just have to try and wiggle the discussion off topic and onto your favorite dead horse. )
Bottom line Erod just made crap up and got called on it, the Rescue Rangers had to come rushing in to try and twist the discussion around...
