    You have to understand the vast differences between the USA and Swisslandia in terms of size alone but in topography and levels of population. Also consider the fact that Swisslandia is land locked and back when they started this now quaint tradition of sending the little Swiss boys and may Swiss girls home packing heat a hand gun in the hills and mountains was a great deterrent. We would have to issue cannons and I do not mean printers or cameras.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    properly being able to execute a flanking manuever or laying down suppressive fire?

    if 80 million armed people wanted a certain politician dead, how long do you think that politician would last?

    That is a valid position to take, but don't forget to be ready to wear an orange jump suit over it. Is jail worth it? This is what separates the doers from those who just talk about it. It is one thing to talk about it, but to actually do it could very well spell the beginning of a very hard life. I believe that is why this kind of tax protest will never get off the ground. If you think I am calling you a coward, don't sweat it. I am a coward too. I just sent a check to Uncle Sam last week. Let's all do the chicken dance. LOL.

    WELL REGULATED means "in good working order". it has nothing to do with regulations or restrictions on guns....


    The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:

    1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations."

    1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world."

    1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial."

    1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor."

    1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding."

    1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city."

    The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it.


    Meaning of the phrase "well-regulated"
    Also, the term "Liberal education" meant something much different then than it does now.

    The assault weapon is for national defense, not sport or personal security. Believe it or not its not as easy to get a personal firearm in Switzerland as people think.
    And they are not the kind of weapon that you have to stretch the deffinition of "Assault" in order to fit. AFIK they currently issue the SG500 (550?).

    You don't know that for one thing. They may not be trained the same or for the same mission. Doesn't mean they aren't trained at all. And don't get wrapped around the axle about this, they have a right to form a militia. It is in the Constitution.
