Many of your are continuing to voice your concerns on the rise of terrorism, and we went out looking for you to see how likely you think another attack will happen in the United States.

"I think a terrorist attack in the United States in the next year is inevitable, especially from lone wolves who are extremely difficult to track down and follow," said Roger Lindley.

"Not very likely, I just don't think we're heading down that road right now," said David Lusk.

"I think it's very likely that it could happen mostly because of all the terrorist attacks that have happened before," said Gabriela Mercado.

If it ever came down to deciding to use torturing as a tool to gain more information, how would you feel about that type of tactic?

"To dive to that levelit makes us no better than the terrorists we're trying to defeat," said Lindley.

"I do if it's needed," said Lusk.

"If it's going to affect millions of people then I believe it is necessary," said Mercado.

What about hacking into cell phones and computers? How would you feel about the government hacking into personal devices of suspected terrorists?

"In order to gather information about who might be helping this person, cell phone's the perfect place to begin to look, but when you cross that line, where does it stop?" said Lindley.

"As American citizens, we have the right to our privacy," said Lusk.

"I mean if it's from a suspected terrorist then I believe it is necessary, but if hacking into other people's communications, I believe it's wrong because it's an invasion of privacy," said Mercado.
