Why can't we treat cars like guns?

The right to defend yourself is a natural born right, so we say the right to guns is an inalienable right.

Well, the right to travel is a natural born right, so why won't we say vehicles are an inalienable right?

Typical answer is "because it wasn't written in the constitution." That's because there were no cars at that time! Plus the way they traveled during that time, they probably never even thought to consider it as a right that could be taken away.

So philosophically, why don't we treat guns and vehicles the same today?

It's obvious today's generation hates the freedoms our forefathers believed in, since they want to take away offensive speech, our right to guns, and are happy to say we don't have a right to vehicles "because our forefathers didn't anticipate them to draft it into the constitution and that means it's impossible for us to view it that way".

But why do you say we shouldn't treat cars like guns?
Update: "Because you have legs."

You also have hands and legs to defend yourself with. Guns are better for defense. Vehicles are better for travel.
Update 2: "we see the right to own horses wasn't written into the Constitution either"

I repeat:
"Plus the way they traveled during that time, they probably never even thought to consider it as a right that could be taken away."
