That's because you're a well balanced, happy go lucky type of guy in full employment and your girlfriend's got nice boobs.
My grandfather's best mate shot him in the head (hunting accident). He was blinded for the rest of his life.
A mate of mine blew his thumb off with a shotgun climbing over a fence (another hunting accident).
He said the worst part was watching his dog gobble up his thumb and then sit there chewing it. The little bollix.
I think the difference is in the numbers Switzerland has something like 150,000 military or part timers
and all are allowed to bring their weapons home with them.
I'm just saying it's too easy, you have some personal problem, you get pissed up and it's just too easy to pick up a weapon and shoot yourself in the face.
