Thoughts on the “regulate guns like cars” argument.

Lately, I think I’ve found the main reason why the comparison of driver’s licenses and gun restrictions makes no sense to me.

If I have a driver’s license, I can have pretty much any kind of vehicle I want (and can afford). While the speed limit may prohibit me from going over 70 MPH, I can still own a Bugatti Veyron capable of going over 200 MPH. I’m not allowed to drive it at 200mph (except maybe at a race track), but I’m not required to make it incapable of going that fast, and as long as I keep it under the speed limit, the law has no problems with me.

If we’re applying the same logic to guns, once I get a gun permit I should be allowed to own and wield a Dillon Aero minigun capable of firing 3000 rounds a minute; so long as I never shoot more than 10 a minute out of it (except maybe at a firing range), the law should have no problems with me.

But that’s clearly not what proponents of this argument are aiming for; the goal is evidently to prohibit me from owning that minigun at all, stating that I “don’t need it” and that it’s “inherently dangerous,” despite the fact that having no need for that extra 130 MPH and the inherent danger of flinging 1.5 tons of carbon fiber and aluminum around at Mach 0.25 begets no such response.

Hrm.

It’s a mecha. Promise fulfilled.

Why do F1 cars break up so dramatically in a crash?


Formula 1 is, on the face of it, a dangerous sport. Cars laden with fuel, driven inches apart at up to 200mph, by drivers who all want to win.

Even a small collision will see pieces flying from the cars and, in major incidents, it can look as if a car is exploding, such is the volume of debris scattered around.

And yet injuries and deaths are rare – Jules Bianchi died of injuries sustained in the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix but he was the first F1 fatality since Ayrton Senna’s tragic accident at Imola in 1994.

So, in a sport where safety is so important, why do teams build cars that shatter in a crash?
