Why Switzerland Has The Lowest Crime Rate In the World
Switzerland does not maintain a military force as we do in the U.S., rather they have provided a well-armed, well-trained home militia that can be mobilized at virtually a moment's notice. That is what this country used to have. A militia is for DEFENSIVE purposes only, in contrast to our military force which is used for OFFENSIVE purposes (and also used to police the world). Imagine the annual savings we would realize if we eliminated the vast military-industrial complex in this country.
Being able to defend oneself and one's property versus being a victim...
If most people carried a gun or had one at home, then criminals might be less emboldened to invade you house or assault you in broad daylight. If criminals know that most people are unarmed, or afraid of guns, then thugs wouldn't give breaking into your house or mugging you a second thought.
"The key to freedom is to be able to have the ability to defend yourself".
On the flip side - look what happens when a country bans handguns.
