President Obama restricts drone use
Restrict guns, too
Conservatives are upset with President Obama’s attempt to wind down the so-called war on terror [“President sets restrictions on drone policy,” News, May 24]. They feel that no effort should be spared in keeping our country safe from terrorist attacks, even while acknowledging that nothing we can do will guarantee that it won’t happen again.
It’s funny that they don’t have the same attitude about gun control. Their argument there is that nothing we can do will prevent some nut case with an assault rifle from mowing down a bunch of innocent children at an elementary school, so we should do nothing.
