Gun control opponents frequently joke about gun control advocates eventually moving on to push for bans on everything else that can possibly be connected to people’s deaths. “More people are killed every year by cars than by guns … you gonna ban cars next?” Well, maybe it’s not actually such a joke anymore. Check out what Elizabeth Warren tweeted yesterday to mark “World Day of Remembrance for Traffic Crash Victims”:
Traffic violence kills thousands and injures even more Americans every year. On World Day of Remembrance for Traffic Crash Victims, I'm sending my love to the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones. It's time to #EndTrafficViolence.

And how, pray tell, does she propose to do that? There’s really only one way to put a total stop to “traffic violence,” and that’s putting a stop to traffic altogether.
It's time to stand up to Big Traffic!

Does this make AAA a domestic terror organization?

We were told if someone uses a lifeless instrument to kill people, we should ban the hunk of metal.

Time to ban cars I guess

It's about time we ban cars, @ewarren. There's no 2nd Amendment right to own a car and commit traffic violence.

No one needs a vehicle that travels faster than 20 mph. And large capacity cars are a problem as well. We need a waiting period, a restriction on resales, and a car buyback program. Don’t get me started on Jeeps. No one needs a car that was originally designed for war.

Traffic violence? Is that the new buzz word to take more of our rights and money?
