    So back to how my visor causes me to run over children everyday.... I'm thinking of ordering a new one with an additional 2 inch drop and 17 lights to match my bumper. My current visor only has 11 lights.

    They didn't have any of those things in Switzerland but they were threatened by the imperial European Union bureaucrats to restrict citizens' gun rights or else. And Swiss citizens foolishly voted away their security and independence. Even if those things happened in Switzerland it's still absolutely no excuse for any government to run roughshod over the rights of responsible citizens. Real freedom is messy, ugly and actually comes with a cost.

    Last week about a million people in Hong Kong demonstrated because they did not want to come under Chinese rule, and you claim they are. A similar demonstration in China would have resulted in the police and military shooting at the demonstrators.

    No, East Germany most definitely was not part of the USSR. I'm not going to explain that to you, try to figure out how it was for yourself.
    Try to use Google for yourself, and get educated about your own country.

    If you think that Hong Kong will not one day become the same politically as the mainland, I got a bridge I'd like to sell you. Their days are numbered. Beijing plays the long game. It's actually happening a lot faster than was agreed upon when the British gave it away. The British were fools to hand Hong Kong over to the Chinese.

    Guess the Berlin blockade imposed by Stalin is false history? The Berlin wall? "Mr gorbachev tear down this wall" ring a bell? East Germany wasnt part of the ussr yet the president of the United States addressed the leader of the Soviet union about the Berlin wall.
    Man you live in your own little reality.

    As for me googling...I'll accept that reply to mean no, you don't have any facts to back up your wild accusations. It ranks right up there with how my visor limits my field of the road even tho pictures show it does not.

    Honk Kong is already controlled by China. On paper they are "Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China"

    No, they didn't have that in Switzerland, and no one there ever needed to use a gun to defend himself. You see, the Swiss are a intelligent and well balanced people, they are not gun nuts who believe they absolutely need to have a whole arsenal of guns at home to defend themselves at all kind of imaginary enemies.

    The point was that Switzerland is part of the Schengen agreement, that means you can just walk over the border without any border checks. In the previous situation any idiot or would be terrorist could buy an automatic weapon in Switzerland, and take it over the border. The EU doesn't like that, so the Swiss had to make a choice. Border controls, or stricter gun laws. The Swiss, intelligent as they are, overwhelmingly voted for stricter gun laws.

    Exactly, they traded freedom for convenience.
