Seems the gun grabbers are at it again with their fake suicide statistics, this time in Switzerland.
Researchers at Zurich University published a study last Tuesday showing that every day one person in Switzerland commits suicide with a firearm, usually a military weapon.So today the Swiss defense minister went on TV and reiterated all the reasons military weapons are kept at home in Switzerland. Predictably, the paper printed this crap here:
They claimed that tighter gun laws would lead to fewer suicides involving firearms in Switzerland.
The data, published in the American Journal of Public Health, showed that Switzerland and the United States have the world's highest suicide rate involving firearms.As per SOP, the papers neglected to mention whether or not the overal rate of suicide was affected by these wonderful gun laws. Therefore they don't have to report the abject failure of these laws to reduce the rate of suicide anywhere, ever.
The researchers blamed the situation on the countries' liberal gun ownership laws.
By contrast, Australia and Canada significantly reduced the rate of successful suicides in the late 1980s by limiting the availability of guns in private households.
Following the publication of the report, left-wing politicians called for all military weapons to be securely stored outside soldiers' homes.
Just more proof that A) the socialists have nothing new, just the same old crap B) that they don't care a damn about safety, defense, suicide or any other thing and C) that they never, ever give up. They will not go away, they must be defeated and driven away.
