Default Euro sickness spreads..Swiss vote for less freedom.

The Swiss by referendum, have voted to curtail their own freedoms.. when they voted for stricter gun control.

They have had no problem with guns, but still want to surrender their rights !

That just doesnt sound right.

Why on earth would a free society with a proven track record of firearm freedom curtailing crime want to go with leaving the guns in the hands of the very ones they managed to keep at bay for so long?

The Swiss are mostly a citizen army. Able bodied men, and woman are required to have an issued rifle
and train with it. I don't see this going anywhere. We knew an old man who still had his rifle from the 1960s.

It's called liberalism, and is spreading here at a rapid pace.
Free Swiss and Americans will soon be history.

You can not believe everything you read about the Swiss on the internet.

Well, it's like Mr Spock once said. Four Billion people were killed in our Third World War. It might come down to that.
