The Swiss version of the 2nd Amendment

TN: Teen Shot By Store Manager: "Around eleven Sunday morning police say an armed, 17-year old boy tried to rob Ben Call market. The robbery attempt failed when the store manager pulled a gun and shot him. The teen was taken to the med and is in critical condition. The store owner didn't have anything to say about what happened but Edward Howard did. "He didn't do nothing wrong he was protecting his life and property." He says the area where the shooting took place is plagued with crime and believes the store manager's reaction was justified... "The general public need not to worry. He's not going to rob anybody any time soon. I will assure you of that," said Whitlock. The name of the 17-year old was not released."

Texas: Three held in Palmview home invasion: "Three men are being held for a Palmview home invasion where an 11-year-old boy was shot defending his mother. Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies told Action 4 News that it happened off Minnesota Road and 8 Mile Line between Palmview and Mission around 12:30 a.m. Friday. The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging coming from the front door. She got up to check and she saw two Hispanic males men wearing masks and armed with handguns walking towards her. She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men allegedly tried to force it open. The woman told deputies that the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area. Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers. The woman waited, opened the door, saw that the suspects were gone and called 911. Deputies found blood all over the floor and noted that the front door had been knocked down. Paramedics took the woman’s 11-year-old son to the McAllen Medical Center where he’s listed in stable condition. But deputies told Action 4 News that a man with a gunshot wound to his neck ended up at the same hospital. Investigators said nothing was taken from the home and that the wounded suspect was taken to a hospital in San Antonio for further treatment. He remains under guard. Deputies said Border Patrol agents detained two Mexican nationals who were found in the area. The two men are being questioned about the home invasion."

Nutty Indiana businesses hate guns: "Gun owners in Indiana will be able to keep their firearms locked in their vehicles at work without fear of reprisal from employers if a bill progressing in the General Assembly becomes law. Opponents of the bill, mostly businesses and business groups, say it violates the rights of property owners to make policies that keep their workplaces safe. “We feel a property owner or employer ought to have the right to say what can or cannot come on their property,” said George Raymond, vice president of human resources and labor relations for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Sen. Johnny Nugent, R-Lawrenceburg, emphasized that his bill does not prevent employers from prohibiting guns in the workplace. It simply allows people to keep legally permitted firearms outside in their vehicles while they are working. Nugent said he wrote the legislation in reaction to instances in Indiana and other states where workers have been fired for keeping a handgun or hunting rifle locked in their cars in a company parking lot."

I wish we had the Swiss version of the 2nd Amendment here in the US.
I also wish they would bring back the military draft! It 'might' get the punks off our streets.

The army doesn't accept punks

Well that is what I call them.
Back when we did have a draft system and you screwed-up, a judge sometimes would offer you a choice, pay for the crime the normal way, or joint the military.

Also read the other day they razed the recruitment age, they are now accepting people as old as 42.
I wish I was 4 again, not to rejoin the military, but just to be 42 again.
