      to the licensure and mandatory insurance requirements for cars used exclusively on private property does not apply to guns as a significant portion of the injury and damage caused by the use of guns occurs on the owner's property.  The same cannot be said of cars.  But I guess a fallback is that if you ever want to take your gun off your property, you need to maintain insurance.

    •  depends on the state, johnny. if I have a (4+ / 0-)

      registered vehicle in CA and decide not to drive it, I HAVE to non-op it. Yes, it could be driven on private property (my own), but other wise (with some exceptions for farm vehicles) the vehicle must be properly registered.

      These laws must vary state to state.

        that saves you money from having to re-register it, but you do not have to register a car in CA if you're not on public roads.  

        the relevant statute is linked here

          •  And here is the DMV site about it (codes are (1+ / 0-)

            listed at page bottom). If a vehicle is STORED (which also means parked in your own garage, it STILL has to be non-op OR registered. There ARE exceptions for some historical vehicles and some others, but these ARE the exception to the rule).

            Here.
