Gun nuts : It's been proven in ANY case that MORE GUNS = LESS CRIME, typically in the 20% range. And I have to illustrate the Swiss, not only their policies protect them against an incursion from the nazis, but now, the swiss don't even keep records of gun crimes in the country because the statistic was so low. There it is almost against the law for a citizen to NOT own a gun and keep it in their home, and the government pays for the ammo in many cases.
B'man ... this is simplistic and wrong !!!
Gun crime in Switzerland is NOT low "because" of high level gun ownership ... it is because the Swiss mentality is entirely different to the US.
Guns are NOT seen as a right per se, but as a responsibility and priviledge, there is compulsory training and service in the military where you are taught that a gun is not a personal right ... the Swiss are also a wealthy nation, with little poverty, high free education and a health system that is a mix of public and private, with a general high standard of living.
Switzerland has no natural resourses, so must instead rely on an educated and healthy populace to use that education and knowledge to best advantage, and they are more family orientated, with women whom stay at home to look after the family being the norm and a high social responsibility taught.
And with a population of less than 8 million boasts 11 Universities and world ranking high tech and scientific Institutes.
It also has a very fair health system, which although by compulsory insurance, is equally fair to all, with no restrictions irregardless of age or medical conditions and cannot be used to make profits for the providers, personally around 8% of personal income, which is topped up by the government as required.
Switzerland Guide: Health insurance, Public and private health insurance in Switzerland: According to the
Their mentality and outlook on life is entirely
different to the US one, they do not see guns as hunting or protection tools but as a sport ... target shooting is hugely popular, so the whole "killing things" does not enter the general psyche.
It is the Swiss WHOLE way of life and outlook of community responsibility that explains the very low gun crime statistics NOT lax laws !!!
Information about Switzerland
Another thing that Switzerland does is DISPROVE the existance of "chemtrails" B'man.
SWITZERLAND is a TINY landlocked country with a SMALL population and is BORDERED by Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Lichtenstein.
ALL those countries REGULARLY and on a LARGE scale have flights flying EVERY SINGLE DAY DIRECTLY over Switzerland.
By the "believers" criteria it SHOULD be one of the MOST poisoned or toxic regions in the world ...
Switzerland has some of the BUSIEST air traffic flying overhead ... not ONLY has it its own originating and landing flights ... it also has air traffic from the REST of Europe.
So if chemtrails and their insidous poisoning were true ...
Switzerland as a VERY small country with a small population ...
Would be showing signs of either population loss, general dumbing down or any of the "other" claims of poisoning ...
The poisoning effects would be SO concentrated over SUCH a small country as to be hugely VISIBLE by now !!!
Yet the REALITY is that Switzerland is one of the CLEANEST countries with PUREST air quality and HIGH STANDARD way of life.
In the REAL world Switzerland is a VERY, VERY, VERY CLEAN, EDUCATED AND HEALTHY COUNTRY ... with a population whom are very, very, very literate and educated ... and with 11 Universities and some of the LEADING high tech and scientific Institutes in the world.
IF chemtrails were real ... Switzerland would PROVE it ... but it doesn't ... because ...
CHEMTRAILS AREN'T REAL !!!
