I was gonna post in this thread,

but I figured I'd put it in its own thread instead:

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A San Francisco man faces 14 counts of attempted murder after going on a driving rampage and targeting pedestrians on sidewalks.
Omeed Aziz Popal, 29, was arrested after a police car blocked his Honda SUV Tuesday afternoon.

...A rash of pedestrian accidents in the GTA has left two people dead and a man charged with impaired driving causing death. Terri Callaway was struck at about 8:45 p.m. by a black Subaru Outback. The vehicle also struck another car and took down a concrete light pole.

Pedestrian Killed On Davis Drive
Police allege that a woman was behind the wheel of a white Honda Civic, heading east on Davis Road. Meanwhile, the victim was allegedly lying down in the middle of the street.

Elderly Man Run Down By Car On Alameda Walkway
A man driving on a pedestrian walkway in Alameda this weekend struck and killed an elderly man, authorities said.
The Alameda County coroner's bureau Sunday identified the victim as 78-year-old George Marceline.
The Alameda resident walking in the 2000 block of Shoreline Drive about 5:30 a.m. Saturday, around the same time police received several 911 calls about a reckless driver in a Jeep Cherokee on a pedestrian walkway.

10 Die After Driver Plows Through Outdoor California Market
SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 16 2003 — An elderly motorist plowed through a crowded farmer's market here this afternoon, killing eight people and injuring dozens more, witnesses and the police said. [The Associated Press reported on Thursday that a ninth person died overnight and a tenth died this morning.] The burgundy 1992 Buick that the man was driving sent pedestrians and merchants' stalls flying, leaving a trail of bodies and debris.

Based on the aforementioned news briefs, taken from different "News" reporting agencies, with one going back to 2003, it is MY opinion that Buicks, SUV's, Hondas, Subarus, and Jeep Cherokees be added to the "target" (no pun intended) examples in the next Assault Weapons legislation. Most data I've been able to find suggests that automobiles inflict more injury and death on us citizens than do guns, yet, nobody in washington seems to be the least bit concerned about the havoc these vehicles are wreaking upon us. Furthermore, while the firearm enjoys protection under the bill of rights, there is no such protection offered the automobile under the constitution.
