    I think assuming the other guy has comic book villain motivations is lazy and ignorant, and it prevents one from really analyzing and discussing the issues.

    Neither the car nor the house are weapons. Not comparable.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Bull, a car can be every bit a weapon and has been used as a weapon many times. Homes can provide cover for crimes like making meth or growing pot or just look at John Wayne Gacy. Used to hide victims.

    Personal observations are the worst way to try to analyze statistical issues. Gun homicides are about twice as common as someone under 21 being killed in a drinking-related incident.

    You're reaching.

    Guns are weapons. That's their main function. Cars are transportation first and foremost. Homes are shelters first and foremost. There's no comparison.

    Wrong, guns are tools. Defense tool, hunting tool, recreation tool.

    Irrelevant as to their main function. It's how they can be used or are used and the result which is the issue.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Proof? Link? Or gut feeling?

    How could it possibly be enforced in any way?
