    Little help on a poll (Swiss soldier and issued rifles)

    As you may now, for a couple of years now, the media try to make the people believe that they are unsafe, only because each male incorporated in the Swiss Army Milita keep is issued SIG550 at home...
    here is mine shot by my friend Darryl, from Houston when he came to Geneva for a buisness trip !



    They use lies, try to scare people, and describe the guns as mother of all Evils, when at the same time they want to legalize a bunch of drugs... guess what... i don't like prohibitions... even more when it's about guns.. And I cannot stand that they have such paradoxal political positions. (lefties)

    Please vote and help us to make them know we are a lot out there to think that responsible citizens, even more militia soldiers MUST keep their issued rifle at home.. otherwise the militia concept is dead..

    here is the poll

    http://www.24heures.ch/sondages

    L'arme de service du soldat suisse devrait être (the weapon of the soldier should stay..) (look for the EVIL GREEN RIFLE pointing at you..)

    and vote for the 1st choice :

    conservée à domicile ? (at home) (watch the text in case they change the positions of choices)


    We all thank you for your help !

    I am back in Nebraska, however my family and I plan on visiting Geneva in December.
    I used to live in the apartments across from the Library on Rue de Mole.
    Mike moved to Switzerland from Louisiana about 10 years ago, and now operates the Pointbreak store.

    LoL ! don't take it the wrong way then !

    Im using msn a lot, and a "wizz" is just a device to make a contact aware that you are online..

    thx for the tip though. i won't say that again.

    Sure you would invade us, and sure you would defeat us, but in the process we are going to make your "Irakistan" wars look like fu**in' Disneyland !

    I think your best pick are nukes with us.
