Nothing surprising here about the Swiss Army Chief urging Swiss to arm themselves. The surprising thing here is that Martin Boess is still director of Swiss crime prevention after making the ignorant comment below, claiming that more guns has meant more accidents with guns in the US. As you can see from the graph above, accidental gun deaths in the US have dropped precipitously due to better and wider training, even as gun ownership has skyrocketed.
But Martin Boess, director of Swiss crime prevention, warned against the false sense of security that guns bring.“When there are more guns in circulation, there is a greater danger for society,” he said in an interview on the 10 vor 10 news programme. “That’s shown by experience in places like the United States. When there are more guns, there are more accidents with guns.”
