Conservative Communication Strategy Still Abysmal...

Just finished watching Power Play, and I gotta admit, Dan Matheson makes Tom Clark look like a Conservative partisan hack. What was sorely lacking was the failure of any Conservative on the show to address Matheson's incessant rant about "we register our cars" when talking about the long gun vote. So guys, allow me to lend a hand again. And feel free to use these talking points whenever Matheson or others bring up the car registry as a talking point.

1. Duck hunters don't take their rifles to get a bag of milk at the corner store.
2. Cars are registered as chattel, meaning it allows a lender to track and place a lien on the vehicle.
3. Cars are the second biggest purchase most people make, next to a house. Purchasers need to know they are getting possession with a clear title.
4. Cars need to be legally insured. If someone has an accident in say a 2010 Camaro, the insurance company uses the registration to verify it's the vehicle that they are insuring.
5. Cars must be legally registered with a vin, so the government can tax them at any point of sale, as well as issue a tax credit when a vehicle is scrapped during manufacture.
6. Knives kill people, and can be as deadly as a gun. Why no knife registry?
