Gun control and Switzerland

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Al-Salamu Alaykum.

I use to be a believer that banning guns is the correct position unless you were a crazy lunatic. However, I stumbled upon this article weeks/months ago, regarding Switzerland, and how Switzerland is a country with many armed civilians yet considerably has a low crime/gun violence rate.

My position now is that the US system should have more regulations, but banning guns outright would be incorrect.

What do you brothers & sisters say?

^^^Bro, for a change in background TV 'noise', l had the 700 Club with Pat Robertson on Wednesday the 4th.

[Yeah l know "the Horror  ...  the Horror" ]

Murderer Paddock's prescription for diaz...whatever had made the news wires that morning. Also known a Valium, it is an anti-depressant which is known to trigger aggressive behavior in some people.

Robertson's comment was these drugs were present in other mass shootings and as such. Then he commented was this is another aspect of "the drug problem".

For the first time, l agreed with this guy. lf true, then the CDC, AMA, and whatever psych association there is needs to get to work.

Maybe a drug reaction test can be developed.

l know since, they police are saying this shooting was pre-planned over a long period of time.

So, we'II see.

    • What racist comments?
    • Hello, Not a single rebuke from fellow Shia Chat members or Edits from Shia Chat Moderators?  But, to date, there are two likes? This post clearly violates Shia Chat rule number 4, No swear words, unmannered replies or racist comments, especially when directed at other members. A warning followed by a temporary ban shall be met. If a member repeats their offensive or racist language, a permanent ban will take place. No excuses. Overt slogans of "death" or "destruction" (or similar wording) of any specific government, nation, people, group, or religion is not permitted. However, constructive criticisms of the above are welcomed and encouraged. And, I question the morals of those that would allow a post such as Darth Vader's to go unanswered.  Many of you like to lament about the irrationality of "Islamaphobia."  Yet, you only clap and praise such racist and divisive post. It has been nice chatting with you all.  I have learned what I came here to learn. All the Best, David
    • Wasalam  Are you not allowed to see your daughter anymore sister?  If Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى can understand our thoughts I have no doubt that the creator of heaven, earth and hell can determine our dreams. Anything is possible sister and this very much could be a mercy of Allah bestowed upon you.

    • I heared a scholar saying that every sinner will burn in hell. And this burning is to cleanse him from sinns he committed. And this burning of sinner is mercy of Allah. Once he is cleansed from sins he will be send to paradise.
