The ability to get a gun here is not linked to conscription/service in the militia. For example, I am not a Swiss citizen, and thus not eligible for militia service. However, I am allowed to buy a gun here. Furthermore, I think many gun owners would support conscription, especially after the "us vs them mentality sets in with the idea that liberals are anti war and don't want to fight. I think the right wingers would love to force liberals to serve in the military. Moreover, its not really comparable - service in the US military furthers imperialist goals and carries a high risk, that does not hold true for service in the Swiss militia. — Unsigned, by: Eagle Adler / talk / contribs
There has been a raging debate over the immigration policies of the swiss goverment. The SVP (A Right Wing Pary) has been campaigning for the deportation of all immigrants convicted of felonies throught a Black sheep campaign and look posed to win the largest majority ever. A riot was caused when SVP supporters marching on the capital were stopped by left wing supporters and where fighting and throwing stones. The riot police broke up the scene with tear gas.
The poster used to illustrate their policies, can anyone find a better link?
