and registration is the governments way of coming for your guns.

3. there is no car prohibition lobby

annual car registration produces revenue. It is perfectly legal to have an unregistered car, just don't drive it on public roads. Pretty stale and lame analogy.

6. Yeah

The car - Gun analogy only works if you are comparing gun deaths with vehicular deaths I guess.

9. comparison is different than analogy

like swimming pool accidents vs gun accidents.

4. Do you need a background check

to buy/sell a car?

If some were calling for confiscation of cars to stop drunk driving, the registration lists would be the likely starting point. Despite all of the rhetoric, we are far more attached to our cars than our guns and are far more tolerant of crimes committed with vehicle.

7. Cars were not built to kill with.

We register guns because people use them to kill other people and we want take away the guns of those people.

13. Actually, not ...

 

... guns were built to save lives.

On the other hand, cars, if they weren't built to take lives, sure do a damn good job at it. Much better than guns. Perhaps we should be hunting and defending our homes with Toyotas

8. Car registration isn't mandated federally

nor is it mandated in most states if you don't drive the car on public roads..cars also aren't specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights...this imposes it's own set of challenges. OTOH, gun registration at the state level is not prohibited by any court precedent I am aware of..

11. "plan to confiscate our cars" - probably not

However, the potential is there obviously.

On the gun side, history shows that registration of guns has lead to confiscation on multiple occasions, just not yet by the US government.

14. No background checks are required to register cars. If anybody proposed it,

 

he would be run out of town on a white-hot rail. And car ownership isn't even a Constitutional right.

15. Car registration is only required for public use.

 

You don't have to register your car, get license plates, or maintain insurance on it if you use it only on private property.
