Rebs,

Having lived there, take my word for it - Switzerland is not a paragon of firearms rights. They don't issue every man in the country a rifle; the vast majority of Swiss men who receive a weapon for military/militia training voluntarily return the weapon to the government at the end of their military tenure. Furthermore, Swiss males who are issued a rifle to keep at home for military use are not permitted to keep ammunition with them at home any longer. A majority of the population continues to push for further gun control legislation and cutting back on military spending. Most adult Swiss that I spoke to when I lived there weren't even sure whether or not they could own a rifle. That country really went down the toilet.
