In gun control posts, someone always says, "X kills more people than guns so why don't we regulate X more," where X = baseball bats, bathtubs, you name it. Snopes looked into this claim:
How about cars? If you think about it, cars are very regulated: you need a license which involves a written and on-the-road test, there are classes of licenses so you can't drive a bus if you're only licensed for a car, you must have insurance, cars are registered, and when you buy a car at a car show, you have to register it.
