Why the Swiss don't get invaded

I knew the Swiss carried their guns home .

But I did not know that they appreciated them as much as we do in the US.

They're all in the military. Don't mess with them.

Highest gun ownership = lowest crime.

Go figure.

I read an article one time that highlighted the Swiss military. I can't find it now or anything similar.
But, in spite of their isolationism, they have some ridiculous military statistics.
If you exclude the US military and the assets we have over there, the Swiss have something like 25 percent of all the field artillery guns, the second or third largest army, and they have the most advanced civilian defense network in the world.
Every citizen has a space reserved for them in a mountain cave somewhere.

It changed my opinion about them.

In Switzerland, you can take your gun home with you after your required military service. People are trained before given a firearm, unlike here, where you can walk home with one in 10 minutes...
