Freedom Index

Ich empfehle einen Blick auf den “Freedom Index” zu werfen, der die Länder nach verschiedenen, untereinander gleich gewichteten Kriterien ordnet (0.00 = nordkoreanische Zustände, 100 = das freie Paradies auf Erden). Die Schweiz schwimmt oben auf. Selbstverständlich sind die Methode und die Ermittlung der Faktoren angreifbar. Doch insgesamt ist das Bild recht plausibel und stimmig.  Ich denke aber, dass etwa “100” bei der freien Meinungsäusserung in der Schweiz etwas allzu hoch gegriffen und unverdient ist. Ein Land, das mittels totalitärem Antirassismusgesetz schwachsinnigen Idioten den Mund verbieten kann, hat kaum eine solch gute Note verdient.

Was die freiheitliche Waffengesetzgebung anbelangt, ist die Schweiz nach Tschechien und Litauen an dritter Stelle in Europa. Doch auch hier scheint die Analyse der rechtlichen Situation nicht ganz präzise bzw. etwas veraltet:

No permit is required to own single-shot or semi-automatic long arms. For other types of firearms, citizens with a weapon acquisition permit may acquire up to three guns (this may soon change to one gun), although no permit is required for private purchases from other individuals (this may soon change, however).  Non-members of the armed forces must have a carry permit to carry a concealed weapon, and generally must show need to obtain such a permit. During their enrollment in the armed forces and reserves, men are required to keep government-issued selective fire combat rifles and semi-automatic handguns in their homes. Swiss citizens are allowed to purchase surplus-to-inventory combat rifles, although they are first converted to semi-automatic configuration. All ammunition sales are logged. A special permit is required to own fully automatic weapons or suppressors.

Das ganze sollte meines Erachtens eher so tönen (the following would seem a bit more appropriate for Switzerland):

No permit is required to own legally acquired semi-automatic firearms. For the acquisition, citizens need to present a weapon acquisition permit for  up to three guns at a time, although no permit is required for private purchases of certain repeating rifles (such as the K31). Every purchase is to be notified to the authorities. A permit is also required for purchases between private individuals. Except police, armed forces, security personnel, hunters etc. in the exercise of their function, citizens must have a carry permit to carry a concealed weapon and must show a particular need to obtain such a permit. During their enrollment in the armed forces and reserves, men are entitled to keep government-issued selective fire (i.e. automatic) combat rifles and semi-automatic handguns in their homes. Swiss citizens are allowed to purchase surplus-to-inventory combat rifles, although they are first converted to semi-automatic configuration. All ammunition sales are logged. A special permit is required to own fully automatic weapons or suppressors. Knives are legal to carry, except knives operating with an automatic mechanism (such as switchblades etc.).

Wie gesagt, der Index ist sehr hilfreich und hilft, sich die Elemente zu veranschaulichen, die eine wahrhaftig freiheitliche Ordnung auszeichnen. Wenn Sie sich also überlegen, in ein freiheitliches Land auszuwandern, so haben Sie hier eine sehr hilfreiche Hilfe.

  1. Whoever put together this index needs to do better research. He gives in “Guns” 30% to New-Zealand and 25% to Estonia. In N-Zealand private citizens are not allowed neither to concealed carry nor to use firearms in self defense. Both of these things are legal in Estonia.

  2. An excellent video warning about the consequences and effect on the Swiss people should the latest gun restriction initiative, supported by the left-wing organizations and their E.U. backers succeed.

    Un excellent avertissement visuel au sujet des conséquences et l’effet sur les personnes suisses la dernière initiative de restriction de pistolet, soutenues par les organismes de gauche et leurs appuis d’UE réussissent.
