So what? That helps us only when we can counter with solid, evidence based argument.

Nope. It is a faulty observation which doesn't undermine anything.

Perhaps, as gun control advocates might well point out, the Swiss experience illustrates, and proves, the importance of requiring certain training, oversight of gun owners as well as registration, licensing and universal background checks (as done by the Swiss) as a requirement for gun ownership.

If Swiss gun ownership is supposed to be a model, then all attributes of their process are material.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
