French Fear German Guns
Majority of Swiss vote to keep a place in home for firearms - Scotsman.com News
Swiss voters came out strongly in favour of their right to bear arms yesterday, with a clear majority rejecting a plan by churches and women's groups to tighten the nation's liberal gun laws.
Opposition against the proposal was strongest in rural and German-speaking parts of the country, which tend to be more conservative and where shooting clubs are popular.
French-speaking cantons in western Switzerland backed the plan.
No news on how the voting on the proposal to keep white flags in the home fared in different parts of the country....
