So I was at the mall the other day... I can't believe these crazy people drive their two-ton death machines around AT THE MALL! I mean, theres little kids all over the place, what if somebody went crazy and couldn't resist flooring the accelerator and killing a bunch of people with their assault vehicle? These things turn people into psychos! The mall, schools, movies, theres all these target-rich parking lots where people can just go crazy! Those Hummers are the same kind the MILITARY uses! Why do civilians need them?

I say we ban these high-capacity flammable liquid tanks as well... I mean no one needs anything like that. Just means more people they can kill with their death machines without reloading the fuel tank. And fully-automatic cruise control too!!! We need to stop them!!!

You have a valid point. After all, the Constitution never said anything the people's right to own and bear automobiles. :p

I was thinking of banning "assault idiots" and "assault sociopaths", as they do far more damage than any gun ever could.

Oh, I don't know. I have bagged 4 nice whitetails over the years with my vehicles. And countless raccoons, possums, skunks, and even a couple pheasants.

I guess then they should be classifed as hunting vehicles.

the lefties are already going after their ammo! The price of gas is making it impossible to operate one of these assault vehicles!

Soon there will be a ban on gas! Or at the very minimum they will tax it so much that only the uber rich will be able to have them!

You mean like the steel-toed boots that the military uses? Nobody needs anything that dangerous... Those are made for killing people!

I think the shoes would be covered in the All Clothing Ban. Only the military should need clothing...it's obviously made for killing too.

be careful....if you park in a garage you may be guilty of having a "concealed assault vehicle" without a permit!

I'd classify my gasoline powered lawn mower as an assault vehicle. It is clearly designed to shear (cut and perhaps kill) helpless weeds and grass who are minding their own business and trying to survive.

Y'all need to remember the Hummer dealer that got torched in the NW (I think it was Washington). The enviro nuts have already started the banning of Assualt Vehicles. Haven't you heard how awful those big bad Hummers are?

By the way, I did take out a deer with my Ford Fiesta a few years ago.

I already have to pay aditional tax for having a HRC(high rate of consumption) as deemed necessary to the 2000 clean air act. Do you have your tax stamp.

What about illegaly modified Vehicles like adding a big block v8(shock and aw) or adding the ever dangerous computer chip dual 4 barrel carb or the dredful nitrous oxide kit.........there ought to be a law! these are clearly a hazard to the public! especially around malls schools and playgrounds!

Not to mention the suppressed hybrids . . . small, easily concealable in parking spaces & intersections, and quiet. Anyone wanting one of these must have evil intentions . . . and I won't even discuss the "Saturday Night Scooters" . . .

mind you civilian hummers are horrible cars and really shouldn't be driven on average Urban British streets :(
unless you want everybody to hate you

I did see one of the original "hummers" that sold for civies yesterday, that still had the original suspension and width.

I must say it was black as midnight as sure as hell looked evil! I wanted one! I just couldn't afford to drive it!

Kinda like I want a 50 cal but can't afford to feed it hehe

Two ton, three ton, Lightweights. My F250 CC LB diesel 4x4 with camper top runs about 8700 lbs. I generally drive it much more carefully throught those lots than most people in their little rice burners. I think my wife's Mercury sedan weighs just around two tons.

Yeah, I bet those steel toe boots saved some soldiers toes that dropped something heavy on them. But, yeah, those are only made for killing right?
