  • A common person can be assassinated. IF a person pays another individual to kill someone it is a paid hit. Meaning assassination. However, they tend to reserve the term assassination for political people. But as long as it is a planned, paid hit it is assassination.

  • I think its considered assassination if your killed strictly for political reasons.

  • OMG good question!!!!!
    John Lennon was assassinated so at least as important as him- ( I don't think there was any political association in that one but...) Hmm I'll get back to you.
    I think if Oprah was killed it would be assassination, but if Elizabeth from the View... not so sure. What if a political figure assassinates a media personality. It would be a murderous assassination
