Anti's say licensing will save lives

Register guns like cars and save lives

“If I were to, let’s say, arrest a 17-year-old this afternoon who doesn’t have a driver’s permit, never had a driver’s permit, that 17-year-old could pay $75 at the local police station and be on the street in a car an hour later,” he said

But cars don’t kill people, people with cars kill people, but no one is calling the American Automobile Association (AAA) to task.  Nor or they calling Ford or Honda GMC, or Toyota out.

So how has all this licensing and registration saved lives?

Oh yeah I’ve never had to submit to a federal background check to buy a car. And you are not required to have a drivers license to buy a car.

So perhaps we need more motor vehicle laws?

You don't need to register your car, nor do you need a driver's license to drive the car, if you drive it on your own property. You need registration and licensing when you drive it on the public roads. The closest analogy with guns is carrying weapons in public, not buying guns in the first place, and there is a lot of bipartisan support for regulation of CCW licenses.

I would LIKE to see guns regulated like automobiles; my car tag and driver's license are recognized in every state, not just my state, and that recognition preempts local laws. Is this what the anti-gun people really want?

Except say, in NY (and some other states) where you can't BUY a pistol (or even TOUCH one) without getting a pistol permit, or worse, NYC, where not only can't you get a pistol without a permit, you can't
1)Buy/Use/own a rifle or shotgun of ANY type
2)Own a air rifle/pistol/BB Gun NO MATTER WHAT (no permits available - bannded by LAW)
3)Buy Ammo, ammo components without showing a registration for a firearm of that caliber, and having your license recorded

Want to TOUCH that car - get a license. Want to buy GAS for it, show your license, and have the data recorded
