I'm surprised medical use by prescription isn't a more popular answer. What about medical prescriptions without the smoke or the high, like Charlotte's Web (the anti-epilepsy cannabis extract for children)?

Something to think about.

When an expectant woman feels the first kicks of the being inside her, she is likely to think of it as fully a baby already even though it is, scientifically and legally speaking, still a fetus. A woman who has decided to get an abortion will instead think of it as a sign of the urgency of removing the tissue from her body. But is it, at that exact moment, a baby or mere tissue? The woman's intent to keep it or abort may alter its future, but not it's present state. So which group of women are to be legally contradicted?
I was finally getting back to a normal routine. My miscarriage a few weeks earlier had taken more than just my baby. It had sapped my emotional reserves as well. I was exhausted, but began to force...

Again...that's not pro-life, that's merely pro-birth...a baby is sacred, but cognitive people are expendable. Also, for the record, I am pro-choice, I just think the real answers lie in the "rational pro-life" platform above that I described.

Forbes says ObamaCare is increasing individual insurance premiums by 41%. Is this a temporary market fluctuation, or a taste of things to come?

Both sides show only the information that supports their side, without any consideration for the other side. Surprise, surprise. Meanwhile, I'd rather see that missing comparison so I'd have some idea who was right.

Why do people own guns in America? The top reason by a margin of 24 percentage points is "Personal safety/protection."

I suppose no one is ever going to answer "to commit crimes," though.

They're not offering an explanation for why the 2nd Amendment comes up so rarely; your explanation fits just fine. Nothing in their article disputes that.

Besides, since the 2010 Supreme Court ruling personal protection is part of the 2nd Amendment anyway. You can claim that at least 60% cited the 2nd Amendment by that simple logic. They just didn't cite the 2nd Amendment explicitly, which makes little difference.

Now that our membership has changed quite a bit, I'm curious where we stand ideologically. In seeking the right balance between public safety and the right of emergency self-defense, what kinds of weapons do you think ought to be legal? Pick the answer that is the closest fit for your views, even if it's not a perfect fit.

I've been silent for an awfully long time, but I'm going to try bring things back a bit. To that end:

Imagine two adults live in the same household. Both are legally eligible to own firearms. One wants one, and the other is insistent on not bringing a firearm into a home that is, after all, theirs as well.

If they both continually press the issue, should the gun ultimately stay or go? Should the law choose who wins, and who should it choose? Are there other factors to consider?

I think the law prohibiting convicted felons from owning a firearm should be refined. If the felon had used a weapon in the commission of a crime or committed a violent act, then I would agree to restrictions. All non-violent offenders should be allowed to own a gun.

As to the prohibition extending to other residents of the felon's home, I disagree with that. I believe the responsibility for securing firearms, should extend to the gun owner in all cases. That may require additional expense and limited personal access in some cases, but it is better than a blanket prohibition. I also believe that when gun crimes are committed with the use of guns belonging to others, the owner should be held equally liable if their guns were not reasonably secured in a manner to preclude unauthorized use by others, especially minor children.

Where is the line drawn between guns (aka, small arms) and such weapons as tanks and rocket-propelled grenades (aka, heavy weaponry)? Is it drawn in the right place?

Why not? It's a good community but maybe allow for a slightly broader topic of discussion, that may help.

Good eats! Too bad they discontinued karaoke night, though. Fun times will be missed.
