I swan, no matter how many times the "treat guns like cars" thing gets stomped, it keeps coming back.
I don't need any license at all to buy any car I want. There's even a
private road nearby where I could take an unregistered, unplated,
single-seater car with no bumpers, airbags, or even headlights and drive
it in circles at 200mph and the government can't say boo about it.
Sure, I have to take a rudimentary test to take the car out on public
roads, but I can take it on any public road I want. My Hoosier driver's
license will let me drive all over Manhattan or down Mulholland Drive.
I reckon I'd be comfortable with treating guns like cars, but your average anti gunner wouldn't.
