    Nearly anyone can legally own a gun. *Anyone* can steal a gun.

    The restrictions on carrying vary greatly from state to state.

    The restrictions...observably....are pretty minimal. Laws and regulations do not equal 'restriction.'
    By definition, laws and regulations are restrictions.

    I'd like to see proof of that.

    But at the same time...if the laws pertaining to vehicle ownership and use are so vast and comprehensive....then they are failing miserably.

    What makes you think more of the same would be effective for gun ownership and use?

    I've given you proof. You apparently are not interested in reading it.

    I don't think they have these stats.

    So I guess I can claim that most if them were, and I'd be as correct as anyone.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    LOL. Does this mean you think that less regulation and more availability- say handgun bending machines- would lead to no additional problems?

    That is a quite common democrat belief.

    I live in an urban area and the nearest bus route is 2 miles away. The closest bus stop to my work is another 2 miles. I doubt my employer would keep me on if I showed up every day after walking 4 miles - half of that with no sidewalks. Many others in America are in the same boat. That "large %" you profess that has access to public transportation is bunk. Maybe NYC but not most of the country.

    Need has everything to do with it.

    MY attempt?!?
    You're probably a gun control freak compared to me. In the future don't bother referring to MY attempts at anything unless you know what the hell you're talking about.

Everybody would be, by law (If you're going to 'rule' on need)....lightly armored family vans that didnt go over 40 mph (or so).

    Sorry...Americans love their cars. And they love their guns.

    And see my signature...in blue.
    No, we would be driving slow, extremely light weight vehicles with titanium crash frames, seat belts, and air bags. The heavier the vehicle the more damage it does to the object you hit because you can't dodge the laws of physics. E(k) = mv^2 / 2

    And that is actually the aim of anyone serious about self defense...awareness and avoidance.
    Yet millions of people go to work every day for decades without ever owning a gun, let alone carrying one, and never have problem. Obviously, you don't need a gun to get to work or haul your groceries - unless, of course, you're car-jacking for transportation. I did need my car or I wouldn't have had a job.
