Switzerland is a free and prosperous nation. They have a high standard of living. They have a very low crime rate. They also have compulsory military service for every man and woman, and they KEEP their service weapons when they go back to civilian life. They are expected to maintain readiness to defend their homes and their country, much like the Minutemen of our own Revolutionary War. Logic would suggest that the reason why they've managed to keep their freedom, their soveriegnty and their improbably low crime rate is because any potential burglar or invader KNOWS that there is someone in every single house with a military-grade weapon and the knowledge of how to use it.

You are incorrect to imply that all those Swiss people KEEP their service weapon after leaving service. The fact is that they can if they want to. Some people opt not to. I know people from Switzerland, so get your facts a little straighter.

Paging CNN host Piers Morgan. A new Rasmussen Report shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the Second Amendment and gun rights are necessary to protect against tyranny.

Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny. Only 17% disagree, while another 18% are not sure.

In case you missed it...
