They're also easier to use, cheaper, faster, and more likely to kill a lot of people because, unlike cars, they're made to do that.

Guns, cars, and ice picks have one and only one quality in common: they can be used to kill somebody. As Bwana pointed out, so can a ball-point pen. So can a mattress, if you throw it hard enough. It's a terrible argument that's logically empty and useful only when you have no other point to raise. All it does it sink the gun control debate into more of a mire than it already is, so please, come up with another argument.
Bombs are easy to make too with simple household chemicals too... Should we ban those?
