The mass shooting at the Texas elementary school was a horrendous tragedy resulting in at least 19 children and two adults dead. When such tragedies occur, Americans should closely examine the situation to avoid similar events in the future.

The American left is not extremely concerned with rationally understanding the situation. Rather, Democrats are standing on the graves of Texas elementary school students to argue for gun confiscation and an end to the second amendment. However, gun confiscation is not the solution to this problem. Americans can learn a lot from Switzerland, a nation with extremely high rates of gun ownership and where mass shootings are virtually non-existent. 

In Switzerland, a large portion of the population owns rifles and pistols, yet the nation hasn’t had a mass shooting since 2001. All men between 18-34 must undergo mandatory military service in which they are thoroughly trained on how to use a firearm. Switzerland views compulsory military service and a heavily armed society as crucial to ensuring strategic neutrality and sovereignty despite having a relatively small population. 

Once mandatory military service is complete, the trained soldiers are allowed to buy and keep their service weapons but must obtain a permit for them. Many of these men see it as their patriotic duty to retain their firearms to protect their homeland and community if there is ever a need. 

Out of Switzerland’s 8.3 million citizens, 2 million privately own firearms. Those 2 million citizens do not include those actively serving in the military or police force. There is approximately one civilian gun for every three Swiss people. 

While Democrats in this country would have you believe that high rates of gun ownership would result in increasingly violent and deadly crimes, this is not the case. In 2016, Switzerland only saw 47 attempted homicides with firearms.

To put that in perspective, Chicago, with a population of 2.9 million, had 3,561 shooting incidents in 2021 alone. So, what’s the difference between these two regions with such extreme differences in rates of gun violence? 

It’s not that Switzerland has more gun control laws. It’s that its gun control laws make sense and are dutifully applied. Chicago’s gun laws have varied over time. At one point, Chicago lawmakers even banned the possession and sale of handguns. Despite such stringent laws, leftist prosecutors have refused to hold those that sell illegal firearms accountable, thus allowing for the proliferation of guns on the Chicago black market.

By contrast, Switzerland does have gun control laws, but they are faithfully administered and do not overtly infringe on your right to bear arms. Local authorities determine who is allowed to have a gun permit and are responsible for keeping track of what firearms are owned by which citizen. However, firearms that cannot easily inflict mass death are exempt from the permit process, such as hunting rifles and some semiautomatic long arms. 

Rather than banning entire classes of firearms, Swiss authorities thoroughly vet who is obtaining the gun. Those who have a past of violence, mental illness, or cannot prove competency with a firearm are generally not granted a permit.  

Democrats’ idea of gun regulation boils down to gun confiscation. Further, their attempts at regulating firearms have never resulted in a decrease in violent crime- one need look no further than Chicago. Therefore, maybe America could follow a middle path by looking to examples like Switzerland to guide us.
