Of course guns aren't the same as cars...

you don't use your gun every day;
people aren't used to the sight of a gun coming towards them on our city streets;
people haven't been conditioned by the media to have an abnormal fear of the sight of a man driving a car;
nutty car groups don't employ old actors to make speeches promoting their right to own and drive Sherman tanks all over our towns;
people with guns aren't employing them while they are talking on their cell phones, adjusting their radio stations, yelling at the kids, eating a fast food hamburger, etc.;
every time someone is killed in a car accident, there isn't a hue and cry to have all cars removed from the possession of the general populace;

Plenty of differences.
