Why aren't cars as controlled as guns?

I have a question. It is factually based that three times as many people are killed by automobile accidents and drunk drivers than are killed annually by guns. Why is there no hue and cry to have major car control or get rid of automobiles altogether because of this clear-cut slaughter?

Where are our legislatures on this issue? Asleep at the wheel?

Could it be that automobile ownership should be three times more controlled than gun ownership.

Could it be because the Chicago mayor and the Illinois governor do not have to drive and they have armed guards?
