Anti-gunners love to argue that we need a gun registry. In many cases, they point to vehicle registration as an analogy to make their case.
“It is legal for an American to carry a weapon. It’s legal for them to drive a car. However, they register that car. We should perhaps look–and the NRA says, you know, guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd back in October.
“Well, cars don’t kill people. People driving them kill people. And so there are a lot of things that could be done to make it safer…” she continued.
Leave it up to Alan Korwin, purveyor of Gunlaws.com, to tear apart that logic. As you’ll see in the video above, Korwin makes a great counterpoint. I’m paraphrasing, but cars and guns are not the same. One is protected by the Constitution, the other is not.
Registering guns and licensing gun owners would be tantamount to registering bibles and licensing churches. Yet no one is calling for a bible registry. At least not yet.
Korwin makes a few more incisive remarks on the wrongheadedness of gun registration. I won’t spoil them here. Enjoy the video.
