Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations. However, it is generally not permitted to keep army-issued ammunition, but compatible ammunition purchased for privately owned guns is permitted. At the end of military service period the previously used gun can be converted to a privately owned gun after a weapon acquisition permit has been granted (fully automatic weapons will be rebuilt into semi-automatic ones). Switzerland thus has one of the highest  gun ownership rates in the world.[1] In recent times a minority of political opposition has expressed a desire for tighter gun regulations.[2] A referendum in February 2011 rejected stricter gun control.[3][4] (Wikipedia)

What is the gun crime rate in Switzerland? Extremely low:  In 2014 there were 173 attempted and completed homicides, of which only 18 involved firearms, for the entire country for a year.

Compare that to Chicago with its strict gun laws.  Over 18 have been shot in a weekend in Chicago. In fact on 3 weeks ago eight people were shot to death in homicides in a single day in Chicago!
