Well if we're gonna be OK with background checks for private citizens selling to other private citizens, perhaps we should have them for automobiles that are purchased between private citizens as well?

Afterall...more people are killed by automobiles than guns. And given that a car in the hands of a drunk person is a 3,000lb missle that can wipe out an entire family we need to know if these "weapons" are being purchased by people who have less than stellar driving records or have outstanding tickets, previous DUI arrests/convictions, no history of mental illness, etc....

The fact that none of the laws passed will prevent ANY crimes is never mentioned when these laws are passed.
