Disarmament of this country’s citizens is the planned agenda of several foreign countries. So, when you see bills before the state legislators and our national Congress, consider the consequences.

New York and Philadelphia have both tried anti-gun laws, and look at the results. Both now have higher crime rates than ever before. In sharp contrast to the muddled thinking of our Congress and state legislatures is little Switzerland.

They have no armed crime, yet every male of military age is issued a gun by the government, taught how to use it and ordered to keep it in his home ready for action at any time. Owning, bearing and keeping arms is written into the Swiss constitution.

No nation has ever overrun Switzerland, for obvious reasons. Just maybe it’s time to emulate the Swiss.

Don't settle for a preview.
