Tin Soldier: Well, depending on how you define "assault," it could be any weapon or only weapons capable of a military assault. In that case, the matter would be debatable. I see people attacking "liberals" for using the term "assault weapon." You just said there is no such thing; why do you then ask me to define one? I agree with you! I called the argument, made by "liberals," stupid and asinine. I did not call you any names, nor do I think I did so in a childish manner. The "liberal" argument and the "conservative" response is, I repeat, a stupid, semantic argument. Again, I agree there is no such thing. It is also a bit of a cop-out to attack that point, which is raised by ignorant "liberals."

Understood. I don't agree with that practice, contrary to popular "conservative" opinion that we "liberals" don't think for ourselves.

The policy was implemented Monday and just five days later, the show has been cancelled after being scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
