4. Because there were no motor vehicles in 1789?

Seriously, the short answer to your question is that modes of conveyance are not mentioned in the Constitution, guns are. But I do not believe the framers of the Constitution ever intended to ban the right of Congress to regulate guns. They just meant to guarantee the right of gun ownership. It is not the same thing, even though the NRA would like us to think that it is. I think Madison and Jefferson would be appalled at how the 2nd Amendment is being interpreted.
