    I forget the top speed. I'm thinking something around 600 miles per hour or something.

    Should such a car be manufactured as a consumer product, without a governor to limit the speed, would you be opposed to laws requiring a governor beyond how far somebody could press the accelerator with their foot?

    Should a semi-automatic weapon, designed and manufactured as a consumer product, have a governor to limit its rate of fire and how quickly magazines can be swapped, or should the only governor be the speed that an itchy trigger finger can manage?

    It seems to me that without properly functioning governors, some consumer products (such as very fast cars and guns) are simply defective in their design as consumer products.
