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....

"Churches and womens' groups"

Now, why does this not surprise me?

The professionally wishy-washy in league with the congenitally risk-averse...

Saw that - now for us.

It's funny how nobody ever talks about Switzerland when they are ranting about the eeeeeevils of private firearm ownership, isn't it.

Don't they have a high rate of suicide using firearms and crimes like someone shooting other family members, similar to the higher number of firearm deaths in the USA though not as many as there?

Couldn't say, but I suspect not since the GFWers never bang on about it like they do the numbers in the US.
