We are hearing a lot of, "You don't need that semi-auto rifle for hunting or any other reason" or "There is no NEED for anybody to ever own a gun like XYZ" kind of statements lately. So that got me thinking, why do we need vehicles that have the ability to exceed the speed limit? Why don't we just limit all vehicles to a maximum speed of 85mph? (so the Texans can at least use their new highway, lucky dogs!). We don't have an autobahn in the US, and the privileges of the rare few that take their cars to racetracks will be sacrificed for the many. I daily drive a sports car that can top out at 160mph, but I have never taken it there. There is really no point; I can't think of a single justification why I would need to go 160mph on a public highway. I also used to ride a 900cc sport bike that could hit 90mph in first gear, and top out at around 180mph. Talk about overkill. I can think of more reasons why I actually need a semi-auto "assault rifle" than why I need a car that can run a buck sixty. Not that I support any of these measures, but if we start giving up stuff based on the idea that "You don't need that!", we can see some things that may be coming next. Thoughts, or anything else you can think of that falls into the "You Don't Need That" trap?
