Cars are the new muskets

As the Willism post made clear the evacuation of Houston could not have happened without the use of privately-owned automobiles. Other forms of transportation were helpful, but the heavy lifting...collecting up the kids, old people, pets, extra food, whatever would fit...was only possible because some two million people went in cars. For many, cars were their shelter.

I am thinking of a corollary to the Second Amendment.

A well regulated Evacuation, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Cars, shall not be infringed.
