Swiss voters throw out gun law reform


http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011...gun-law-reform

Majority of 26 cantons reject move to ban army rifles from homes, which reformers hoped would lower firearms suicide rate?

Guess they don't mind if it Increases slit rist suicide rates!

No, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I have a few Swiss colleagues, here in the office and abroad. Smarter than the average bear, but maybe that's my good luck. I imagine, as a population, they aren't smarter or dumber than any other western European population.

And now to the old line, given my by a guy who was in SAS or the like during WWII

I never met a German who wasn't either Dutch or Swiss.

I have quite a few Swiss customers and they are AVID gun enthusiasts. It costs them a LOT more money to enjoy the hobby than what it does here in the US.....Yet they are still AVID about it.

Since assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland this win isn't much of a surprise. Switzerland has one of the most liberal national suicide policies in the world it is even legal for a non physician to assist.

One thing's for sure - Switzerland and the Swiss are not even closely similar to the USA and Americans - sure they both like their guns but that's where the similarities start and finish!

The Swiss are 'different'

That's correct. We have a first amendment; and the second amendment protects the first. That's what many don't get
