Would we ban cars?

After reading Associated Press reporter Bob Christie's story about an Iraqi immigrant running over and killing his daughter because she had become "too Westernized," I am amazed there was no outcry from the public to ban cars ("Defense calls death accident, not 'honor killing,'" Tribune, Jan. 25).

The public needs to realize that whenever a person uses a man-made object to kill another person, it is not the object we should question, but the behavior and motive behind the person using the object. Just as we do not ban all cars, the public should not be screaming about banning guns.

We also need to remember that those people who possess a concealed-carry permit have been through a thorough background check.

Apparently, we need to do a better job when screening applicants who apply for driver licenses.
