And they lived happily ever after

You know why Switzerland is neutral? Because nobody in their right mind would fuok with them, this is why.

Why Switzerland Has The Lowest Crime Rate In The World


Why Switzerland Has The Lowest Crime Rate In The World

The key to freedom is to be able to have the ability to defend yourself & if you do not have the tools to do that, then you're going to be at the mercy of whomever wants to put you away.

Guns are deeply rooted within Swiss culture - but the gun crime rate is so low that statistics are not even kept.

The country has a population of six million, but there are estimated to be at least two million publicly-owned firearms, including about 600,000 automatic rifles and 500,000 pistols.

This is in a very large part due to Switzerland's unique system of national defense, developed over the centuries.

Instead of a standing, full-time army, the country requires every man to undergo some form of military training for a few days or weeks a year throughout most of their lives.

Between the ages of 21 and 32 men serve as front line troops. They are given an Sig SG-550 assault rifle and 240 rounds of ammunition which they are required to keep at home.

Once discharged, men serve in the Swiss equivalent of the US National Guard, but still have to train occasionally and are given bolt rifles. Women do not have to own firearms, but are encouraged to.

You mean guns don't kill people by themselves or influence others to kill? That they may actually be used for good and even reduce violent gun crime. What a novel concept. Great find Chef! :plus1:

I wonder what the real reason behind "gun crime so low it's not even reported" is.  I tend to believe it has a lot to do with the military training they receive pretty much their entire life.

Drugs are all outlawed there (can't even get medical marijuana) so you would assume there's a drug trade there of some type, yet the violent crimes are so low.

Religion (or lack of) is possible with roughly half believing in a higher power and about 25% believing in the Christian god and 25% being atheist/agnostic (estimates are that 2-4% attend church regularly).  The majority of believers seem to belong to the state Church of Sweden.

Whatever the reason, I wonder how many of them go hunting with the assigned assault rifles.
