To legally drive a motor vehicle, a person has to have a license and the vehicle has to be registered and insured, so that we know who is responsible for whatever happens in that vehicle. If an owner sells a vehicle, the person has to report when and to whom it was sold, no ifs, ands or buts.
This is for everyone’s protection.
The vehicles are not made to intentionally kill people. However, if someone accidentally kills someone with a vehicle, the owner can be tracked down in a matter of minutes, and the person will be held accountable.
Yet we tolerate the National Rifle Association dictating to all people that its members have the right not to be accountable for guns that are made not just for hunting animals but also for killing people.
It’s not unpatriotic to want to know who owns these killing machines and limiting their capacity to kill. It’s common sense.
