    Just kidding. Of course, I'm trying to make a point, not be funny, for in Switzerland it is compulsary for it's citizens to own automatic and semi-automatic weapons and be trained to use them, for they have no standing army. Switzerland had the highest gun per citizen ratio, and they are weapons of war, yet the citizens are able to control themselves with these weapons. Why?

    This is why progressives insist that everything become a one size fits all mentality. After all, to have competing ideologies that are successful, is a threat to their own ideology. This is why no one must be given a chance to put other ideologies into practice.

    Just imagine if the US were this way once again. So instead of paying trillions of dollars for Obama to wreak havok on the world via the military complex, the citizens would be the ones defending the country and not be spent into the ground and sending their children off to die overseas to do it everytime the UN wants the US to do their dirty work for them.

    Japan has very strict gun laws and a lower homicide by gun rate that Switzerland so your point is stupid.

    My point is that Switzerland does not have people shooting up schools, which is the motivation to lock them all up in the US. The point is, is that what is going on here is of cultural significance and has nothing to do with guns. There is no getting rid of guns in the US, so get used to it. If they did, they would have a civil war on their collective hands, so we best understand why this is a problem all of a sudden after 200 years plus of gun ownership.

    However, the federal government only knows three things, ban it, tax it, or throw more money at it.

    Idiots.

    Gee. If we didn't know better, we would be led to believe that the Swiss don't have any gun control laws at all. Way to tell half the story, OP.

    So you tell us. What gun laws prevent its citizens from shooting up schools using their automatic and semi-automatic weapons?

    Why would I do that? Did I make that claim? You seem a bit defensive.

    Why don't YOU list all of the regulations that Swiss gun owners have to adhere to that would piss you the fuck off if they were made into law here. Also....tell us how you would be OK with all the pansy-ass liberals in CA being responsible for guarding our Western border if we move to that citizen's militia that you seem to be advocating.

    So if every household in, say, Chicago's inner city had an assault weapon, things would get better there?
