    Basic gun control is absolutely necessary, and it'd be good if we could prevent guns above a certain caliber from being in public hands without special permits. For example, I'd rather not see my neighbor walking around with an M60, or something as powerful as that; a good idea would be requiring a special permit for guns that can penetrate body armor.

    I wouldn't mind seeing regulation on that then. And I wouldn't mind seeing better standard issue vests as well.

    I'm speaking in a general sense. I could do some research on the topic, and talk about specific points, but I'm not in a debate about gun control, I'm currently in one about the broad idea of liberalism, and before that, a comparison between Cheney and Biden.

    And I really don't want to get into a debate I need to do serious research for.

    liberalism as practiced by the American left is a claim that most americans need government direction and guidance in their lives
    Not only are you demonizing liberalism, but you are claiming HOW liberals define their position on issues. Sorry. You are in NO position to do that. Everything I see above is nothing but an extreme version of an issue and an assumption that you cannot prove.

    Hitler was more intelligent than Dick & Joe combined. Doesnt mean thet he was GOOD. And Im NOT saying Dick wasnt good or Joe wasnt good. Im saying intelligence with WISDOM is quite important.

    It's like the appeal to popularity logical fallacy. Person A is more intelligent than person B, therefore person A is better than person B. Completely illogical.

    I agree. The argument IS illogical. Ive met people that are VERY intelligent in IQ and a total fool regarding social engagement. Plus common sense. A good leader has Common Sense, Creative, Wisdom and Knowledge.
    A good secondary scientist that performs basic tasks must be only... intelligent.

    A good leader doesn't necessarily have to be a genius, but he needs to surround himself with the best people. That's a better determinant for a good leader than IQ.
