Time to Ban Motorcycles
How many times in the past few days have you heard that a person "doesn't need an AR15 or a pistol with high capacity magazines"? Sure we may want to enjoy the shooting hobby but do people really "need" an AR? The argument is that the risk of mass shootings outweighs the hobby use of such a firearm. It sounds so "reasonable"...
So what about other items we do not really "need"? Let's ban motorcycles. While some people use them as a primary means of transportation, most of us riders use them as means of recreation and fun. However, here is an article on the higher risks of injury and fatalities posed by such a hobby:

So nobody really "needs" a motorcycle. Banning them would save lives. The risk of such a hobby outweighs its usefulness.
While we are at it, let's ban high performance automobiles. The speed limit is 70 MPH in most states. Why does someone "need" a 400 HP Corvette that will do 170 MPH? Banning high capacity engines would save lives.
I really wish I was so omnipotent that I had the power to decide what everyone really "needs". It must be a terrible burden to know what the rest of us should have. We should be in awe of these people, not arguing about our petty "rights". :aargh4:
Get your point but no thanks.

Over a thousand Americans die from accidental electrocution every year. 3000 more suffer electrocution burns. 20% of these deaths are children under the age of ten. We need to outlaw electricity. Think of the children!
Sometimes a man just has to be cool. Motorcycles and guns are cool.
Women love that show Sons of Anarchy for a reason.
Now your'e about to get on my last nerve. Take my guns AND my Harley? Is life worth living now? Hahahah
You will never get my Vmax.....and no, I am NOT compensating :wave:
I'll give up my guns before I'll give up my bikes.. Well..the Rugers at least..Keeping the Sigs regardless.
OK, this stuff has stopped being funny. I am hearing countless people that want to take my guns. Now you're wanting to take my bikes. Let me guess, someone else is going to want to ban sex and ensure there's nothing left that I enjoy.
(well that's not totally true. I am a huge nerd and actually enjoy the OCW physics course from MIT, but that's a secret!)
Let's just let the great minds ban those things they think we do not really need to save people. How about recreational boating? No practical value, countless deaths. Skydiving? Nothing to save there.
I truly hate these people with a passion I cannot express...
I love my old lady, my dog, my guns & my bike in some certain order...
By the same token let’s ban pools also, nobody needs a pool and they are responsible for lots of deaths each year.
you will have to pry my cold dead body off my "Fatboy"
