Thursday letters: What if cars were treated like guns?

Thank God the automobile had not been invented before 1787, when our Constitution was written. In addition to “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” our wise forefathers might have included the following in the Bill of Rights: “Access to private transportation being necessary for the public welfare, the right of the people to own and operate automobiles shall not be infringed.”
