    While I'm at it, I should also have included Israel, which has compulsory military service and no gun control.

    As for Switzerland, don't many men there still keep fully automatic rifles in their homes?

    I'm in favor of law-abiding citizens owning full auto and/or suppressed weapons.

  4. A Little Gun History

    Wolfhunter and Tatted are right. Every male citizen of Switzerland is a member of the Swiss Army, and has a complete uniform, weapons and ammo in their home. That is the information I was given by a Swiss visitor to the states.
    A man without a gun is a subject; a man with a gun is a citizen.

    According to 2A, everyone here is a member of the militia, so, other than the fact that everyone doesn't own firearms, we're not too much different from the Swiss.

    The Swiss militia are trained, similar to our Reserves and National Guard.

  8. Notice the picture is a white male not a black gang banger.

    What does that have to do with anything? What would you say if it were a Black man such as myself, body covered with tattoos and cornrowed hair, but who is otherwise law-abiding? What does a black gangbanger look like, anyway, kwo51?

    It should be noted that the figure is holding his firearm properly, and not laid over on it's side. I was taught they put the sights on top of the weapon for a good reason.

    Actually the man needs to take his finger off of the trigger since he's done shooting.
