Another Dancing Monkey for “Gun Safety.”

The actress equates gun safety with strives that have been made in the automobile industry as well. “For cars, you have to have training and you have to have a license, and you wear seat belts and we have airbags and we have all of these things in place that have reduced fatalities unbelievably,” Moore says. “And it was a totally unregulated industry at first. I feel like something that is very sensible and straight forward can be done also with guns.”

Once again, we get us a dose of the already destroyed “guns like cars” meme. I am gonna save me some time and effort by redirecting you to Jennifer’s “So, shut your pie hole and dance, monkey!”

  1. If guns were like cars I could carry a gun in all 50 states, buy a gun from a private seller with no background check, buy a gun from any seller in any state, use my gun as young as 16 years old so be careful what you wish for.

    1. You could also have any gun you wanted to, as long as you had the money. A 16 year old can buy a $300,000 Ferrari if he has the cash/credit line on hand.

  2. She’s wrong about training, too, at least in Oregon. “Training” is optional, and only encouraged (read: only openly offered) for applicants under 18 (people over 18 must actively seek it out). For all applicants, all that’s required beyond the bureaucratic forms and fees are a basic knowledge test (true/false and multiple choice questions) and a basic aptitude test (a 15-to-20-minute drive around the block in most cases). Simple stuff, really.

    And, as has been drilled before:
    – The license is valid in all 50 states, no questions asked.
    – The license is not required to operate a vehicle on private property.
    – The license is not required to purchase any vehicle.
    – A background check is not required to obtain a license.
    – A background check is not required to purchase any vehicle.
    – An owner can sell/give/transfer his/her vehicle to any person he/she pleases.
    – Registration is only required for vehicles/drivers operating on public roads.
    – Insurance is only required for vehicles/drivers operating on public roads.
    – A standard, “Class C” license is good for any vehicle from a two-seat sports car to a 15-passenger van to a moving truck (though motorcycles require an endorsement on the Class C license, and buses and semis require a commercial [“Class A”, IIRC] license).
    – Gasoline, oil, spare parts and other various vehicle “needs” are sold freely, with no additional ID cards or licenses or background checks required, and no questions asked.
    – No license or training is required to perform (or attempt to perform) one’s own car repair and maintenance.
    – Vehicle dealers are not required (to my knowledge) to apply for and get a federal license to sell vehicles commercially.
    – Vehicle dealers are not required to keep a “bound book” of all transfers/sales, and their records are not subject to unwarranted government inspections.

    Plenty more, but we get the point, right?

  3. Ah, that explains why there are no crappy drivers on the road- they make you take a test (that nearly everyone passes) to get a license.

    Also, this “gun safety expert” seems to know nothing about the safety advancements in firearm technology, and seems unaware that firearm accidental fatalities have been “reduced unbelievably” as they have decreased by 93% since they started keeping track of it as a statistic.

  4. I would add that if I was an evil person I could kill a lot more people with a car than a gun. A couple of tons of metal aimed at a bus stop, crosswalk or a sporting event would be horrific.

    So, we must ban all the cars…for the children!

    However, there’s a Constitutional right to own and drive a car so we cannot ban them. Oh wait, never mind, that Amendment was for guns.
