My thesis is that if we can't, we are doomed to follow other industrialized countries into socialism and fewer personal liberties.
The link below this paragraph will take you to one of the best reads I've found about guns and crime, short of Professor Lott's book, More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws where he explains his county-by-county research over the entire United States.
What America can learn from Switzerland is that the best way to reduce gun misuse is to promote responsible gun ownership.
It explains how Switzerland is keeping communities, and thus the country, safe through the maintenance of cohesive, family-oriented communities where teenagers are closer to their siblings and parents than they are to their schoolmates and other teens in their communities.
And so I hope to begin adding to my blog more frequently...
I'm still, and again, Karl
