Switzerland has the lowest crime rate in the world,because the people are armed,basic military is mandatory for men,and after wards they are required to keep their weapon at home

...and their assault weapon ammo in a government armory.

Switzerland has the lowest crime rate in the world,because the people are armed,basic military is mandatory for men,and after wards they are required to keep their weapon at home.

This is a version of a popular myth propagated by the NRA.

Switzerland does have a high rate of gun ownership, but their gun-control laws are very strict.

And, most notably, gun ownership is structured around a well-regulated militia.

The NRA likes to play both sides of the coin when it comes to Switzerland's policies, as there is no way they would accept many of Switzerland's strict regulations:

Another popular topic for NRA misinformation is Israel:

yes crazy people have now taken to shooting schools.. More laws will of course solve all that.

Nobody but you said that. Laws will, on the other hand, make it harder to get the tools that make killing dozens of people in minutes as easy as it currently is. But at what cost? A slight inconvenience to those who should be allowed to legally own guns. Yeah, just not worth it.

Interestingly Hedge, in the wiki link you provide above, the Swiss have a firearm related death rate less than half ours, yet, if I understand correctly, virtually every Swiss household has at least one military SIG 550, which is a fully automatic assault rifle with a high capacity magazine.

oh, I understand now...
I'm sorry for posting here references to any study that questions some of the underlying beliefs of those who are proponents for gun rights.

Since those studies do question those beliefs, they must be wrong.

I admit my mistake in assuming that there may be something to learn in those studies.

What can we learn from a study that asks criminals who have been shot whether they will admit that they were shot in their capacity as criminals, or will claim that they were shot otherwise?
If such a study was funded with taxpayer dollars (as seems likely--who would actually spend their own money on such nonsense?), that would add to my suspicion that taxpayer-funded "research" is often a waste of money.
And we can draw our own conclusions as to the reasoning ability of someone who takes criminals' self-serving statements at face value.

That's funny, you insult me, I get a knee jerk reaction and tell you to f*#k off, and I'm the one who need to calm down. How about you stop insulting everyone who doesn't agree with your "exact" sentiments. The stupid thing is I read the rest of that post and would mostly agree with you on what needs to be conrolled, I also did not repost anything, perhaps you were thinking of a diffirent article I posted on another gun thread. I believe this government is not going to stop at just controlling, I think they will go all the way and ban guns if they can. Call me a conspiracy nut or whatever for that, why should I care. I hope I'm wrong about my feelings. I would rather say in 10 years I was wrong and accept it than be saying I'm correct and have the 2nd Amendment really be abolished.
Funny how you have loose lips when it comes to insults, but have no pictures posted or will not post your real name. Your actions show what a “real” man you are. As I said though, I was stupid for letting it get to me in the first place, I have no clue who you are and you seam like you are ”special” kind of prick who gets off on shitting on people . Here is another link to piss you off sunshine.

can we have one with Obamas picture, or would that be racist? We can only show white folks with targets on them and it has to come from a lib because otherwise it's totally diffirent and not funny anymore, but rather a call for violence.

That's funny, you insult me, I get a knee jerk reaction and tell you to f*#k off, and I'm the one who need to calm down.

Yep, pretty much. I never told you to fuk off. I suggested you might be of low intelligence for posting an article that argued the reason behind the Casper killings was that the college was a gun free zone. That is absurd, as I pointed out. If you don't want me to infer you are dumb, don't post dumb stuff. And if you have a knee-jerk reaction to someone questioning your intelligence on the intardweb, it is ALWAYS a good idea to "calm down."

How about you stop insulting everyone who doesn't agree with your "exact" sentiments.

I don't insult EVERYONE who disagrees... just the ones who disagree with idiotic posts.

The stupid thing is I read the rest of that post and would mostly agree with you on what needs to be conrolled

Why is that stupid?

I also did not repost anything, perhaps you were thinking of a diffirent article I posted on another gun thread.

That article was posted somewhere, right? So you reposted it here, right? Hence, it is a repost.

I believe this government is not going to stop at just controlling, I think they will go all the way and ban guns if they can. Call me a conspiracy nut or whatever for that, why should I care. I hope I'm wrong about my feelings. I would rather say in 10 years I was wrong and accept it than be saying I'm correct and have the 2nd Amendment really be abolished.

I felt the same way about Snatch. My feelings weren't as intense as some of my friends, but I was concerned. I'm still concerned about some of the sh#t Snatch started and pretty disappointed that Obama has continued it.

Funny how you have loose lips when it comes to insults, but have no pictures posted or will not post your real name.

That's funny. So your REAL name is Dirt Claud?

Your actions show what a “real” man you are.

No, that is what my unusually large penis shows.

As I said though, I was stupid for letting it get to me in the first place

Yep.

I have no clue who you are and you seam like you are ”special” kind of prick who gets off on shitting on people.

Come on, I only tried that once... it was a long time ago. Honestly, it isn't worth the mess.

Why should I have to live without any of my weapons ,,Im a law abiding citizen and former leo..Why should any of the millions of law abiding gun owners have to pay for a crime committed by a crazy person.. Pricilla Ford used her car to run down people on a crowded sidewalk on Virginia street in reno bitd. Do we ban cars? Anyone could take out people with a full size chevy blazer. Just because o few wackos think that banning all guns will rid us of violence is no reason for the rest of america to have to pay for deeds they had nothing to do with.
