Project Amendment 28 to follow Switzerland’s lead, mandate gun ownership among all able bodied citizens

Though it is sure to generate considerable controversy among those with a political or personal aversion to guns, the concept has already been shown to be a success elsewhere. According to Mike Piccione from The Daily Caller, the man behind Project Amendment 28, the U.S. would do well to mimic the model of the European nation of Switzerland, which has long maintained that all civilians should possess firearms, and also happens to have one of the safest and most desirable societies in Europe.

 

Switzerland is so comfortable with guns, in fact, that some citizens openly stroll the streets with Sig SG 550s, for instance, a powerful and fully-automatic “assault rifle” that would draw considerable attention here in the U.S. And contrary to what the anti-gun lobby would have you believe, this unique policy of open gun ownership has not resulted in a society marked by bloodshed and school shootings.

“[Despite the prevalence of guns, the violent-crime rate is low (in Switzerland): government figures show about 0.5 gun homicides per 100,000 inhabitants in 2010,” wrote Helena Bachmann in a recent piece for
TIME. “By comparison, the U.S. rate in the same year was about 5 firearm killings per 100,000 people, according to a 2011 U.N. report.”
