That reference is the old NRA chestnut. The Swiss comparison for ignorant Americans.
Well, the Swiss character is law abiding, trustworthy, and fair, and there is very little street crime there. The Swiss actually have that “well regulated militia” that the US Constitution craves. That is a totally different situation from the USA where we have prolific, street gangs and drugs related crime that threatens every citizen.
The law in Switzerland is very hot on gun crime, and private ownership of pistols and military weapons is very strictly controlled. I would happily swap Swiss gun laws for American ones , but I doubt that the NRA would be very happy about that.
