I've been hearing the argument "cars kill more people than guns" around here a lot.
Cars are titled, registered, and inspected for safety by the government. The government requires owners to insure their vehicles for liability of harm to others. The government maintains records of sales, transfers of ownership, accident records, and safety (product defects/recalls), and mileage performance on your vehicles. In order to operate a vehicle, drivers need to demonstrate a basic knoledge and operational competence before given a licence. Those licences are revoked when infractions occur.
If you would like to treat guns like cars, then sure - let's go for it.
