Buzzfeed: Hey, We've Got a Solution to the Problem of Islamist Terrorists Using Cars to Murder People. Let's Just Ban Cars!!!

The list of inconveniences and deprivations Americans are expected to absorb to accommodate the occasionally-explosive Muslim newcomers gets longer and longer.

After every mass shooting incident, the left immediately calls for more gun control. That knee-jerk response has led some on the right to mockingly ask, after attacks like the one in Manhattan this week, whether we should now ban cars and trucks. Today Buzzfeed posted an opinion piece (by an outside contributor) who takes this line of thought and runs with it. Yes, the author says, we should ban cars and trucks, at least in cities:

In the coming days, politicians will try to convince you that what happened on the West Side Highway in Manhattan this week was an issue of terrorism, immigration, or religion. But just like the plague of mass shootings is a gun problem, the thousands of people killed by cars as they walk our streets every year is a car problem.

I guess you have to give the author points for consistency but in this case, she's consistently wrong. The attack in Manhattan was a terrorism/religion problem. The attacker made it very clear why he killed people with a rented truck. He was inspired by ISIS.

Hey, just file an injunction with a Hawaii federal judge and I'm sure he can override the Constitution to ban cars in cities.
