Why is there 4 wires in my light switch?

The only wires that should be connected to a switch are the ones that are being switched. If there are more devices that are being fed down the line, they should be connected with a pigtail. Is that correct? If you want to use a push in terminal or a screw terminal on the new switch, use the screw one.
