How come you don't want to ban cars? Don't they kill people?

To The Daily Sun,

I have had it up to my eyeballs with do-gooders who want to sink our "right to bear arms" with the excuse "the government should be doing something about school shootings. Are you going to ban knives next because a boy stabbed some of his classmates? How come you don't want to ban cars because, as you said, "they kill people"? Pray tell, what would you do without a car? What would you do without knives in the kitchen? What can you do to protect yourself?

As for the government doing something about the problem, be for real, they can't solve anything without spending billions of tax dollars. Now Obama is going to ask for $2 billion to reign-in illegal immigration. Nothing like shutting the barn door after the cows have escaped.

The government controls your money. Government controls your property. Government controls your life. Do you now want to give them your "God-given rights"?
