    Code:
    Switzerland Strips All Citizens of Gun Rights. 
    
    Despite the vehement protests from many of Switzerland’s cantons  
    (states), the lower chamber of the nation’s Federal Assembly voted to  
    strip its citizens of gun rights, not by registering or confiscating  
    firearms, but by outlawing the storing of ammunition in the homes of  
    the citizens. 
     
    According to The Liberty Zone, the move was led by Switzerland’s small  
    but vocal–and powerful–Socialist minority. And apparently it was a  
    leading women’s magazine who aided the Socialists in the cause. 
     
    Having failed at attempts to take the guns themselves from homes and  
    store them in government facilities, the new law takes aim at ammo  
    rather than the guns. The Swiss are still allowed to possess firearms;  
    they simply will not be allowed to possess the ammunition to use them. 
     
    This is the backdoor method of disarming citizens, and it is very  
    effective. 
     
    The ban also applies to the male citizens who make up Switzerland’s  
    time-honored citizens’ militia. Even they will be required to keep  
    their ammo at approved government facilities. 
     
    The fact that a Leftist minority group was able to convince a majority  
    of representatives in the Swiss Federal Assembly to approve the measure  
    is considered a major victory for Socialism and the push to strip  
    individual citizens of the right to keep and bear arms. 
     
    In a stunning example of what Leftists can do when citizens are not  
    paying attention, the Socialist ban on ammunition in the homes of the  
    Swiss people should be a stark lesson for U.S. citizens who wish to  
    preserve the right to keep and bear arms. Anti-gun groups do not have  
    to register or confiscate firearms to win the battle. 
     
    Rather, the growing modus operandi of the gun control movement is to  
    render a Constitutional right null, void, and useless by implementing  
    legislation aimed at things such as ammunition rather than the actual  
    guns themselves. 
     
    Within the U.S. the anti-gun movement does not even have to introduce  
    legislation. A mere executive order by an Administration in the 1990s  
    has been all it takes for a massive assault to ensue on gun shops, gun  
    manufacturers, and other facets of the gun industry, to begin to  
    gradually rob the citizens of their rights to keep and bear arms. This  
    is presently being accomplished by a rogue arm of the Department of  
    Justice–the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives–which  
    has succeeded in shutting down 80% of the gun stores, and gun and ammo  
    manufacturers, within the U.S. 
     
    The prevailing wisdom, similar to what we find in Switzerland, is to  
    attack gun ownership by focusing on various facets of the gun and ammo  
    industry rather than to directly attack the citizens’ guns. This  
    effectively renders useless any supposed right to own, possess, and use  
    a firearm without addressing the firearms themselves at all–a perfect  
    example of disarming the citizens using the backdoor method. 
     
    Switzerland has been the last bastion of real gun rights in Europe.  
    Now even the Swiss have fallen to the sly and seductive ways of the  
    Socialist anti-gun movement.

    I saw something like this over at THR, and Switzerland is NOT banning private storage of all ammunition, just military-owned ammo. So in other words, the Swiss populace can own and store all of the personal ammo they want, but the military owned ammo will stay in the armory (where it belongs.)

    I'd run a search and post the source, but I can't here at work because it gets blocked. Just go to THR and it'll be there somewhere.

    We need to get rid of these regulations on firearms transfers. The power to regulate is the power to ban.
