Assault Vehicle Ban!

Those with manual transmissions can rest easy now. I got to the bottom of this. The concern is only for fully automatic transmissions.

P.S. (IT'S A JOKE!)

The connection, my friend, is that this poster (the subject of this thread and two other threads) has nothing to do with banning cars, it is a satirical and intentional comparison to guns, related to the gun control issue. I own guns, and do not debate the gun control issue (it's just a personal choice I won't go into here). The poster (the car poster) is directly related to the gun control debate (and it is a direct reference to assault weapons, i.e. fully automatic firing weapons and large capacity clips, where one gun control argument has always been, what legitimate use is there to American civilians owning assault weapons). Let's make it clear, I'm not arguing the gun points. I said I own guns, and I realize the fun of shooting all types of guns. The poster connection is obvious. Some folks are going to want to debate both sides of the gun control issue this close to the Newtown tragedy. My point, and I stand by it, is that satire on the automatic gun issue (whichever side you are on), including joke graphics (the car poster) is rather insensitive at this time. It's not that far a stretch to understand and I don't mind explaining it, but taking a minute to understand why that poster was developed and put out now will bring clarity. I expect the poster was developed within the last week, but since gun control debates have been ongoing for years, it's possible it existed before. In either case, it is appropriate to take it down off its original site for anyone with any respect.

Yeah, definitely not the forum for political debates. I regret even putting my own comments a few hours ago. Bottom line, it's a joke.
Now somebody please start another exhaust/CAI thread.

Once again, just kidding guys.

On KCAL News Los Angeles last night, a discussion of how legal firearms can 'easily' be transformed into 'assault weapons' and a story on how much business local gunshops were doing (as if it were a surprise given the current climate and White House statements). So, yeah, such tragedies are exploited every single time. Those events become polarizing flashpoints. The pro-gun folks, maybe not so much recreational hobbyists, are usually on the reaction side when it happens.
Definitely a political and sensitive subject, just like the guy who made the poster was making a political statement by way of satire. I like analogies and think it has a lot of truth.

I very much appreciate your response sir! I so love an honest, civil, intellectual debate. Thank you.
Our's appears to be a matter of perception more than anything else. Perhaps mine is somewhat broader however. You present your case well. You are articulate in your delivery. Your ownership of a point, well taken. You are steadfast.
Bravo sir...Bravo!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you and your family! I try to keep discussions (and debates when they occur) civil and respectful, but I'm human also so my wording can be imperfect at times. I do want to talk mostly cars, but I can't deny there are a lot of interwoven issues today that relate to cars. One thing is for sure that we all agree on, I'm glad Challengers are still made and available to us, and always will own and drive mine! Freedom of choice in vehicles is core to the American ideal !
