Do Guns Kill More People than Cars?

Mother Jones has created a Google Map to show those states where guns are responsible for more deaths than traffic accidents.

The map uses data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The states where guns account for more deaths than traffic fatalities are displayed in dark and those state where traffic accidents account for more deaths are shown in a lighter color.

How many more cars are there than guns? Are cars used more frequently than guns and more widespread than guns. How many car deaths are intentional? Suppose more people drove 1000hp, 16 cylinder, 0-60 in 3 sec,/ 248 mph Bughatti Veyrons instead of Priuses?
