    On February 13 voters in Switzerland turned back a proposal that would have tightened controls on firearms possession and use in a country where a large share of the homes have at least one gun and where learning to shoot and handle a rifle for defense of country (as well as sport) is a right of passage for every Swiss male.

    +1 :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    But it means that only 8% of the population has to change their minds. BUT all it takes here is one more antigun judge to be appointed to SCOTUS and we lose our rights!

    8 US Presidents have been NRA members
    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!!

    Why don't we do something positive and begin a movement to create a serious citizen-militia training system as part of our gun culture?

    Our nation was created only because we had large, organized citizen militias that were created for mutual defense against indian attacks, therefore were there to rise against British tyranny.. most of us have never even heard of this, or have forgotten

    Let me fix this real quick. Just want to make sure the author isn't being a little misleading in his piece in order to justify his premise for the article.

    I'm surprised with these numbers as I would have thought they would have been much higher given the countries history.
