Should I ground a light switch?

If you replace a switch, the floor is not necessary, as in the previous exception. However, if you install a replacement switch or other, in a metal box that is on the ground. The switch will be on the ground through the yoke of mounting devices and screws. So, if the metal box is on the ground, the switch is also on the ground.
