Default 8 Murdered, 45 critically injured in LA Spree

8 dead , 45 critically injured, including many children in LA Farmers
Market Driving Spree!

Ban Cars! Register them and license their owners!

No one has a need for a deadly automobile, let alone one that will
travel in excess of 60 miles per hour with one push of the peddle!

Ban these horrible instruments of death. Every year in the US, over
40,000 people are killed by them, and hundreds of thousands more are
maimed and crippled for life!

For Gods Sake,ban them for the Children!

Or at least increase the tax on them so that we can form support groups and
government assistance agencies!

peddle!

If we all went to a bicycle economy and lived in villages, with
maybe a train or two for travel to the city, then we would all
live healthy, satisfying lives. Perhaps there would be less
pressure on governments to have wars.

But then populations would increase, unless you imagine satisfied
people have fewer children, and the pressures would result in
war, anyway.

That push on the peddle by an old man was only an accident,
wasn't it? What will happen when we all have atomic umbrellas?

Ah, finally! A DIFFERENT argument that will perhaps convince a couple more
non-believers.

Not.

I face greater danger on the daily commute to the shop than from the gun-toting
gangbangers around the shop.
If only I could mount some twin .50's on the front of the truck to handle the
idiots in their SUV's and beamers that are too busy yakking on the phone and
doing paperwork to pay attention to their driving.

Is this a case of a californian motorist meeting a 90 degree corner and
finding it to complicated to down shift, slowdown, signal and turn the big
round thingy that he holds onto? )

I would have thought that by now in CA they restricted their cars to 10

MPH and fitted big sift people catchers all round,not so much as a public
safety issue in CA its just so the rest of the US can see the callies
coming and get out of the way)

The State of California is taking urgent steps to prevent such a tragedy
from happening again.

The Californians naturally blame the car manufacturer for causing the
accident, its never a Californians fault for doing something stupid.

So what they are going to do is to insist car manufacturers print in large
raised letters on each pedal the words " Gas" " Clutch" " Brake" and they
are to be spaced at least 18 inches apart, they when pressed will not
function for at least twenty seconds to ensure the Californian is certain
that he is happy with his choice. He will then have to press the selected
pedal again.

The State of California has also agreed with the ACLU that in fairness to
the US right to choose that each and every pedal will be interchangable so
that californian drivers can pick which pedal they prefer in which slot.
Naturally there will be an override button in the passenger seat for the
californian drivers councillor.

P. Correctness would also require braille.

Ok, you can also kill damn squirels with you gun, I give you that one.
Humanely, otherwise a pellet gun would cause cruel and painful
unnecesary suffering. Nasty beasts they are.

I need Cliff to take over. Where's he?

You forgot some of the more important restrictions.

1. Compact cars (i.e., easily concealable) will be banned.

2. You will have at least a 5-day waiting period between the time you
buy it and when you can pick it up.

3. You will have to pass a federal background check prior to purchase
to ensure you are not prohibited from driving.

4. You will not be allowed to purchase more than one car in a month.

5. You will need a local Sheriff to sign the purchase permit.

6. If you are convicted of a felony, or are under a domestic
restraining order, your purchase, possession, and/or use of a car will
be a separate felony requiring a minimum 5-year prison sentence.
