    One of the most effective tools for terrorism of late is the automobile , a cargo truck ,  a pizza van ,   a  tow truck , Seems the latest  tool for mass murders  has become the automobile , Where is the "progressive" left on this issue ?     Still behind the times trying to ban the second amendment and muskets ?     

    Anyone beginning to get the relationship between insanity and mass killings  ?

      I suggest a mandatory mental health evaluation before buying or renting any motorized vehicle (car, truck, snowmobile, jet ski, ATV, etc.).  And a govt. issued card indicating a bi-yearly background check before buying gasoline or diesel, shown to the station attendant before the pump will come on.

      It goes almost without saying that it will save far more lives than confiscating all those black "assault weapons".

      If guns were regulated like cars I would be very pleased.  License, paper test practical test, adults only, never drunk. limits to velocity and emissions--more requirement to have bigger ones... yes, that would be great.

      There is no one answer to this problem.  Mental health care, gun control, all of it. We need all of it.
