Guns Versus Cars

Assault-car-ban

If the liberal ruling class were the least bit sincere about wanting to disarm us for our own safety rather than to make us less able to resist tyranny, they would go after cars first. These accidental death and injury rates compare firearms to motor vehicles (MV):

The point of gun control is control, not safety. But libs will get around to banning cars too if we give them enough time. Mobility is among the many things the masterminds don’t trust us with.

    …I’ll take the 5000 lb. war-chariot of death over a
    115 grain pellet for the win.
    Who in their right mind hurtles down a road at sixty miles an hour in a 5000lb. projectile hoping to miss a
    5000lb. projectile coming the other way and separated by
    a line painted on the roadway….shudder

    Queen Bloomberg is already on top of this! Thankfully the Obama Administration is “listening” to the Queen on gun control and hopefully will do the same on assault cars too.

    Obama could pour trillions into creating the worlds first network of interstate bicycle lanes in order to cut down on the senseless assault autos!

    Don’t give the fascist bastards any bright ideas!

    (The ban on personal transportation will almost certainly come from the EPA, btw.)

    Or as this study suggests building cars that are desirable to the customer leads to more aggressive driving.

    Increased materialism, or the importance of one’s possessions, is linked to increased aggressive driving tendencies.
    Uh huh
    But surely building only government subsidized battery operated Trabants will cure this.

    Anything that smacks of personal choice with the lone exception of abortion is hated by liberals. Isn’t the word “Liberal” in its conventional sense as applied to “Liberals” an oxymoron? WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY…

    And so George Orwell’s masterpieces and warnings to the future go unheeded. Instead of being seen for the warnings they were, they are becoming the blueprints for enslavement.

    I carry a gas can in my car for additional capacity. The government will soon get around to banning them.

    BTW, the last set of tires I bought have a very aggressive tread design, providing better “handling.”

    I love my new assault tires.

    They’ll discover some endangered bug that lives on asphalt. Meanwhile, bird-grinder windmills are okay.

    If your car has a removable fuel magazine, you’ll be required to unload it and lock it in the trunk separate from the car if you’re driving in IL.

    Makes about as much sense as most of the hairballs these libtards cough up.

    There must be a strict limit on horsepower.
    Ten or less is quite reasonable.

    Next week’s 450-hp C7 Corvette will debut as an assault vehicle.

    Where will this all end? Down here, that’s where. :evil:

  • Eleanor in Hell

    Franklin, it’s too bad you missed the Corvette.
    All you had to compensate was Al Capone’s confiscated 1928 Cadillac.
    :eek:

  • F.D.R. in Hell

    That’s true, Eleanor.
    And just this morning at breakfast, he told me he’s still pissed at J. Edgar and me.

    Oh, by the way, Hoover wants to know if this red dress makes his hips look wide?

    Bet you feel “assaulted” when buying those tires

    However, our analysis shows that, even on very generous
    assumptions about the effectiveness of the tariffs, the initiative
    saved a maximum of 1,200 jobs. Our analysis also shows that
    American buyers of car and light truck tires pay a hefty price
    for this exercise of trade protection. According to our calculations,
    explained in this policy brief, the total cost to American
    consumers from higher prices resulting from safeguard tariffs on Chinese tires was around $1.1 billion in 2011. The cost per job manufacturing saved (a maximum of 1,200 jobs by our
    calculations) was at least $900,000 in that year. Only a very
    small fraction of this bloated figure reached the pockets of tire
    workers. Instead, most of the money landed in the coffers of tire
    companies, mainly abroad but also at home.
    The additional money that US consumers spent on tires
    reduced their spending on other retail goods, indirectly lowering
    employment in the retail industry. On balance, it seems likely
    that tire protectionism cost the US economy around 2,531
    jobs, when losses in the retail sector are off set against gains in
    tire manufacturing. Adding further to the loss column, China
    retaliated by imposing antidumping duties on US exports of
    chicken parts, costing that industry around $1 billion in sales

    ALSO, nothing bigger than 4 cylinders!

    And REMEMBER!…. CARS KILL!

  • dan

    ….my Harley only has 2-cylinders and it almost killed me (well,technically it was the asphalt that I landed on)

    Federal gestapo-regulators loot banks to pay alleged victims who can show no harm.
