“They may have been atheists, you don't really know, but they surely were not humanists. It was not atheism or secularism that provided the impetus for their actions, it was ideology. Try to make a distinction that is not so self-serving....”

“The drones are the messenger. Who has questioned smart bombs, which are the message? Smart bombs delivered by conventional aircraft were not questioned, though they did much more damage, because they were harder to control. The intel from surveillance drones makes the operation much less likely to cause collateral damage. Better control of bomb carrying drones makes the operation safer for innocents. The success of drones in Afghanistan is obvious to the enemy, thus their attacks on the messenger. So if the US goes back to conventional delivery platforms, all is well? Drone use in the US is a different issue. Question that.”

“It is wrong to conflate "drugs" with marijuana, as well as "guns" with hunting rifles and shotguns. Those of us who want to legalise marijuana do not necessarily want to legalize all drugs. Nor do we want to ban all guns, just assault rifles. Using generic terms like guns and drugs, raises the red flag in conservatives. Lets get our terminology more specific....”

amm203 on Apr 8, 2013 at 16:21:12

“I'm conservative and agree that marijuana should be legal and that semi-auto rifles are overkill. However, the issue with guns has more to do with keeping them out of criminals' hands. Both of these issues are political issues for all the wrong reasons. If they're approached as they should be - in common sense - then progress would actually be made. That's not the case. Every issue is tied to how it can garner more votes or keep statistics from marring one party's image. Going after the rifles the same way as going after MJ is not looking beyond the numbers. Legalize MJ and you cut a huge source of revenue for crime rings. How about more serious penalties for unlicensed gun crimes and better regulation for who can purchase them? Make it a 20 or more year minimum if you're ever found committing a crime with an unregistered gun. Considering the majority of crimes committed in the US are from illegally owned guns the problem should be apparent. As a gun-owning & open-minded middle-conservative I believe these two issues should not be Left vs Right - it should be common sense. We will never make it that as long as people on both sides who have interests only for themselves are in power.”

“you are using Assault Rifle improperly... that has been a technical term for some time now, meaning a weapon capable of select/automatic fire. I beleive you mean "assault weapon" which is kind of a bogus tern anyway. Red flag is up!”

OIF2009 on Apr 8, 2013 at 16:05:55

“"Assault rifle" is a generic term that has included revolvers, pump shotguns, double barrel shotguns, .22 cal target rifles, AR15 varment rifles, any accurate bolt action rifle, etc... The going defininion is "any object that can be used to harm or kill a person or persons".”
