Switzerland requires all citizens to own a rifle. Require everyone be trained on the proper way to use that rifle, and have inspections to MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A RIFLE. I find it rather amusing that you get in trouble for NOT having a gun. But, theyve managed to stay out of 2 world wars and have an almost 0 crime rate and a booming culture.
I think there is something to learn from this.
I have no conceal and carry permit (really no sense in me getting a gun without one), want to get it. Although with the current laws, im more scared of waco type events than i am of some thugs trying to take money from me. (Been robbed twice at gun point). If i do get a gun it be a glock17c for the following reasons.
1) Reliablity obviously
2) If im aiming, its to kill not to maim. So a high caliber projectile is not needed.

If an intruder pointed a gun at me I don't think I would worry about the law. I would rather my family be alive and me in jail than have them raped and murdered.
Canada is pretty bad about guns.
