THE "BLOOD BATH" THAT NEVER HAPPENED | 2003-07-12
Liberals point out that Europe and Japan have rigid gun laws and low gun crime. But Switzerland has millions of privately owned guns and no more gun crime than any other European country. Lately there was a school shooting in Germany, but there haven't been any in Switzerland.
No respectable conservative ever brings up Switzerland.
Twelve years ago there was a national debate over laws to allow honest citizens to obtain concealed weapons permits.
Almost every liberal shrieked that, if states allowed concealed weapons permits, there would be, and I quote, "a blood bath", unquote.
Soon a majority of states passed those concealed weapons permit laws. Nothing happened. So for the first year liberals were saying that the "blood bath" would begin soon.
Liberals haven't said a word about that "blood bath" for almost a decade.
No liberal and no respectable conservative has ever mentioned that "blood bath" in all those years.
