Someone had mentioned suing a car manufacturer if someone goes on a rampage. A car is designed and indicated for transport. A gun (outside of hunting) is designed and indicated to cause harm to another person (whether from aggression or in defense). If you use a gun right you will kill or hurt another person. If you use a car right you won't.

Ahhh... but you are painting a false difference between the two.
It doesn't matter what the intended purpose is (harm or transport) but whether the LEGAL use is legitimate (defense/hunting/recreation and transport/recreation respectively). The argued issues on both sides come from illegal use whether it be homicide, suicide, attack of the masses, negligent/dangerous operation, those can occur with both guns and vehicles.
You paint a difference of convenience for your argument where none exists in the general argument. I concede that they are both created for a different purpose, but both have their legal and legitimate use. Now if you were to show me how to fight off home invaders with giant no-harm glue traps, I may also concede there are better methods of home defense.
