As a Canadian citizen, you really don't have any place posing this question by way of surrogate through American citizens such as the ones providing
you their opinions.
It must be horrible to be so close to a citizenship within the United States of America where you could actually answer this question all by yourself,
where you could freely vote and even enjoy the soon to be more limited rights of gun ownership.
The truth of the matter is, as Americans we have Freedom of Speech. We embrace that right, something you may or may not enjoy to the full extent that
we do as you live in Canada. You'll have to educate me on that one. But I do know this, my Freedom of Speech while excluding me from shouting "Fire!"
in a crowded theatre does entitle me to speak up about what I believe we should be doing to protect our interests at home an abroad.
I can only speak for myself in saying that when asked if we should or shouldn't tell Iran they can make a nuclear bomb, it comes down to a far more
complex equation than any that involves me personally as an American citizen and gun ownership, or automobile licensing or taxes or any law that
affects me personally.
So while I may have an opinion, I entrust the duly elected officials of my country to ultimately make the choices that are best for me, the interests
of my country and my country's allies around the globe. Even our good neighbor to the North.
That is a reply suitable of a Superman. Not just somebody wearing the cape.
