    Since the Obama administration’s talk of banning so-called ‘assault weapons’ has resulted in a huge spike in semi-automatic weapon sales nationwide, the White House has recently begun a covert ‘whisper campaign’ suggesting the president might also ban U.S.-manufactured cars and trucks with fully-automatic transmissions, now dubbed ‘assault vehicles’.

    President Obama reportedly hopes such chatter will give a much-needed boost to U.S. auto sales.

    “These fully-automatics are the weapon-of-choice in the vehicular-manslaughter industry,” said one unnamed White House source. “The automatic transmission allows the killer to accelerate rapidly without the manual process of clutching and shifting gears. Assault vehicles murder roughly four times as many people each year as do firearms. If you include suicides, cars still kill nearly twice as many people compared with all types of guns.”

    The administration source also noted that while people with criminal records make up the vast majority of gun-murder victims, ‘assault vehicles’ kill indiscriminately, murdering 39,800 Americans in 2008 alone.

    “In most homicide-by-firearm cases, it’s one crook killing another,” said the source. “But automatic transmissions turn law-abiding citizens into killers of other law-abiding citizens, including women, children, seniors and innocent pedestrians.”

    Publicly, the administration maintains that it supports an individual’s ‘right to keep and be borne upon wheels’, but the sophisticated whisper campaign is designed both to curry favor with the anti-car lobby, and to boost the economy by driving panic demand for fully automatics.

    The fact is that most people killed by cars have automatic transmissions! We need to put a stop to this! BAN AUTOMATICS!

    Good point! Most cars that kill people have tanks larger than 10 gallons!

    We should all send letters to our Senators. JD, can you organize a thread for us?

    You are absolutely correct. I completely agree with you. These so called "Toys" are gateway vehicles! The majority of people that drive go on to drive the cars kill people.

    Lets remove these dangerous weapons from society!

    Manual Trans.?

    The FACT of it is that less than 1 in 50 noobies to driving even know how to drive a manual trans. When I was in High School, I got the privilege of teaching a few how to drive 4spd. Chevettes, in drivers ed. class. The instructer put me with 1/2 dozen girls, and said that if they pass the Manual Trans. driving test, I'd get an A for the class.:eek: Well, I got an A-but I don't think I would ride with them off of the HS parking lot. HA!:p I don't think that they have used manual trans. cars, in drivers ed. for the last 25 years or so-kind of a shame-their a lot of fun-:D

    Good story BillyBob. :)!

    In furthering my support to ban assault vehicles, I have personally trained four people to safely and responsibly use a manual vehicle. I also instructed them that to protect their rights they should only use one if they are licensed to do so. On a side note, I have yet to meet anyone who can concealed carry a vehicle....

    I think the time has come for copies of military assault vehicles, like the Jeep and Hummer, to be taken from civilian hands. They serve no lawful purpose.

    But leave my hunting 4-door alone. I bag one Whitetail buck every year with it.:eek:

    I now shop for vehicles in a manner similar to Borat. I go up to the dealer and ask: "How fast do I need go to kill a democrat?"
