I hate how this guy cuts people off so abruptly. he should tell them they have one minute for final arguments. the first interview was cut off just when he was about to say something that seemed important.

I would have no problem whatsoever with repealing the second amendment and confiscating all handguns, assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons nationwide. I say this as someone who enjoys firing guns and have a deep appreciation of hunting.

I'm not often in agreement with Fareed Zakaria's particular political positions, but I am a fan of his. His ideas are well thought through and he is unafraid to take on controversial topics or unpopular opinions. Fareed Zakaria GPS is a great addition to the political media landscape.
