They don't have a 2nd Amendment do they??

I merely pointed out that recent polling suggests a similar number (67%) of Americans also support stricter laws.
I'm glad you agree with me that bringing up the US in a thread about the Swiss is an attempt to derail it.

Meh, when the Muslims get uppity, they will want-and get all the guns they need.

He's one of many Canadians that also think gun crime will go away if legal law abiding owners give up theirs. He doesn't see the failing courts that let these thugs go through revolving doors.

Until they fix the backlogs, it will only increase no matter what law you pass.

As long as the fisherman who continues to catch no fish by baiting his hook with the same bait, with which he repeatedly yields the same result. Then he is not considered a fisherman.

Is there perhaps something else you may be good at?

The post was on topic, not my problem if you guys wanted to go off on an unrelated tangent.

Why cant the right take responsibility for their own actions?

So, I guess you are for another Referendum, huh?
It is up to the UK people to decide on another referendum.

The UK referendum sounds about as honest and well thought out as the process to get EU to pass the Firearms Directive that the Swiss now must adopt.

Well, it was you that took it off on a tangent and Norman and that other fella that was complaining so....

The right has no responsibility for you trying to derail a thread.

Well, you seem to keep responding, so there's that. Maybe the fisherman has gut hooked his fish after all.

I’m afraid this argument doesn’t stick.
1 Warsaw is not in Germany, as a consequence it wasn’t under German laws. That in itself makes your argument quite weak.
2 The ghetto of Warsaw was the equivalent to a big prison. Even in the US, prisoners aren’t allowed to bring their weapons prison, there is no wonder the Nazis did the same and unarmed their prisoneers. The question is why those people were allowed to be in prison while their only crime was to be Jew or communists. Jews were 1% of the population and antisemitic feelings were strong in Europe. Even if they had arms fighting 1 against 100 would not have served them well.
As the Wikipedia article says, the only strength that was sufficiently armed and organized to fight the Nazi militia was the German army. Unfortunately it sided with the Nazis.
The Nazis is a good example that very bad things can happen when bad people have access to weapons and those bad people can be normal citizens.

I'm sure the residents of the Ghetto appreciate your distinction.
