Are you trying to make a point that cars can be deadly? If so, then we don't need guns. Guns serve no purpose, apparently, since it's so easy to kill!

Or maybe we can talk like adults, and recognize that guns really do make it easier to kill (especially kill specific targets!), and different kinds of guns can be more or less effective in different circumstances. Which doesn't necessarily mean we should ban them, but at least we can recognize that certain tools (like guns) are better at certain things (like killing the people in a school that a deranged person might hate), and it's reasonable to talk about the availability of such deadly tools.
