Switzerland’s Responsible Gun Nuts Pt. 2 | The Daily Show
No, this isn’t a green screen. This is real,
disgusting Switzerland, a neutral country
full of noncombative, chocolate-eating yodelers. And they’re also
full of… guns. In my previous report, I trained
with firearms expert, Miko. Miko, look–
I shot some holes in the… Swiss cheese. You get…? I put the… I learned that
when it comes to gun culture, Switzerland has a few more
regulations than America. (automatic gunfire) And thanks
to these gun regulations and strict ammunition control,
Switzerland has a murder rate of nearly zero! Sure, that’s a great statistic,
but how save can it really be? To learn more
about their gun culture, I attended Indochism… the world’s largest
annual shooting festival, right here in… Holy (bleep).
That’s a lot of guns. ♪ ♪ Even that baby has a gun. There’s not enough training
in the world to prepare me for this, so I
brought my two secret weapons: my translator, Pierre, and my super-manly,
rock-hard American vest. Why are you wearing
a pussy vest? What did he…
what did he say, Pierre? Pussy vest. Ah, that’s-that’s funny.
Pussy vest. Why aren’t you wearing
a pussy vest? People are walking around
with guns. -Because it’s safe.
-(guns firing) Oh, my God, what is that?
What is that? Hold… Get… get… They’re shooting.
No worries. -They’re shooting? -They are
shooting over there, not here. How many accidents
have happened here? -Nein.
-Nine accidents? -No.
-Nine accidents? -No, no, no! Zero accidents.
-Zero? -Zero. Zero.
-I thought you said nine. -Nein.
-Okay. -It’s the German language.
-It’s the German language. I know in the United…
American, this is dangerous. But in the Switzerland,
we have… -Tradition.
-Tradition. We have rules and this… (rubber toy squeaks) We have rules. Rules? What kind of rules let
little kids participate in this Glock-toberfest? -Do you love shooting?
-Oh, yes. Why? So it’s like yoga? Yes. They also throw booze
into the mix, because, pourquoi pas? It’s a… it’s a national party. Oh, here comes the beer,
everybody. Let’s let the beer walk through.
We’ve got rifles and then beers. We come here with the peoples,
with the friends, and la, la, la, la,
the beer… ♪ La, la, la, la, la, beer. ♪ And cluck, cluck.
We make this. -(imitates automatic fire)
-Yep. And it’s finished. Well said. Guns and beers. This was an American wet dream. But something was different
in this country. Why should I listen
to this drunk Swiss roll? You’re telling me
I’m having beer with the former president
of Switzerland? -Yes.
-Cheers. Nowhere else
could a former president be surrounded by thousands
of firearms with no security. How could we get America
to feel this safe? -That’s your problem.
-That’s my problem. Well, that’s
as neutral as it gets. But he’s right,
it is our problem. I mean, here they
can shoot guns, drink beer, and no one gets hurt. In America, something like this
could never happen. (gunshot) I decided to embrace
this culture and hang with the only group
that would let me in. Wow. Yeah, you guys got
AR-15s here, huh? Meet the Shooting Society
of Prez. -♪ ♪
-(gunshot) It was time to show
these Swiss fondues how Americans shoot guns. -I missed?
-You missed, yes. How did I miss? What? What do you know?
You’re ten years old. Yeah? Yeah? You probably never
even kissed a girl. You ever take your gun
to school? -No.
-No? We don’t… American. -You’re not American.
-No. Okay, well, I can say that,
but he can’t. These (bleep) Swiss kids, huh? Even if it is true–
because the fact is, for Swiss kids, life with guns
is very different. Nothing happens.
It’s not like in the U.S., where you have
those mass shootings. So your son,
when he goes to school, he just has to worry
about school? Yeah. Catching the bus,
sometimes. Unlike America,
Switzerland has found a way to peacefully coexist
with firearms. (chanting):
Shot! Shot! Shot! -(gunfire)
-Oh! Whoa! Whoo-hoo! And one of the main reasons
is that, while these gun owners may be loaded,
it’s actually illegal for their guns to be loaded
when not in use. We got beer,
we got guns, we got food. I feel like I’m growing
another testicle down here. You know what I mean? So, America,
if we’re gonna insist -on being a nation of…
gun nuts, -(toy squeaking) we could at least try
and Swiss things up.
