It is one of the first lessons you must learn each of the officer candidates: Before you take a decision and its subordinates commands to be issued, first, a careful assessment of the situation. Even more astonishing is the recent announcement of the Swiss officers ' Association (SOG). On Tuesday, she announced out of the blue, the no Parole for the planned Amendments to the weapons law.
This position reference casts doubt on the judgment of the Association, which represents, after all, commander 22’000 officers from Lieutenant to the corps. If the voting public on 19. May the SOG Parole and the Adoption of the new EU weapons Directive would refuse to follow, threatens to Switzerland to the Schengen and Dublin agreements is excluded.
You must have eyes, what that would mean: All the neighbouring States were to adopt towards Switzerland back to strict border controls. The consequences for the movement of people and goods would be incalculable. The Swiss police would no longer have access to the Schengen information system SIS, in which unwanted or wanted advertised people from all over Europe are stored. That would complicate the fight against crime, the statistics show: Since Schengen is in force, decreased the number of crimes in Switzerland by more than twenty percent. Many foreign tourists would no longer avoid Switzerland because your Schengen Visa would be valid. Switzerland would lose the right to asylum-seekers who have already been in another Dublin country an application for Asylum, to send back. As the only Non-Dublin country, you would be attracted to rejected asylum seekers from all over Europe.
All this shows how crucial the Schengen-Dublin System for the physical and economic security of Switzerland is the Swiss today. In order to preserve these advantages, it is forced Switzerland to take over from the EU a couple of new rules for the possession of weapons. Opinions may be divided about whether the new EU weapons Directive actually increases the security. However, even if one doubts the effectiveness of the measures, so they bring in the worst case, just a little more bureaucracy for Shooters, hunters and firearms collectors. In the practice of his hobby, right, not a single serious weapons friend is prevented by the new weapons.
The SOG weighted, however, these slight limitations, higher than the significant gain in safety, which brings the Schengen and Dublin System. That of all those people who have dedicated themselves to the protection of the country of mistaking its real security interests in such of the officers is not a good testimony. In the officer school, the verdict would have been for such a poor assessment of the situation brutally: Not met.
