Aren't cars and trucks dangerous too?

Answer

Of course, all motor vehicles are very powerful machines, just like all firearms are powerful weapons. And yes, we can do much better with motor vehicle safety, even as we continue to improve. Yet with the hundreds of millions of cars and trucks on the road day and night throughout the country, our interconnected state laws help create much safer road systems and an important culture of responsibility for motor vehicle ownership and operation. Similar systems for gun ownership and use will help this way too.
