(Current Thoughts & Trends, Feb. 2000)


"In Switzerland, all males are issued assault rifles for militia service and keep them at home, yet little crime exists there. You see shooting ranges everywhere. If there is a shooting festival in town, you will find rifles slung on hat racks in restaurants. Tourists -- especially those from Japan, where guns are banned to all but police -- think it's a revolution, but shooting is the national sport, and the backbone of the national defense as well. More per-capita firepower exists in Switzerland than in any other place in the world, yet it is one of the safest places to be. [It] has a lower murder and robbery rate than England, where most guns are banned."
