Of course, the reality is very different. Switzerland has a national militia system that requires able-bodied civilian men of military age keep weapons at home in case of a national emergency. These weapons are fully automatic, military assault rifles, and by law they must be kept locked up. Their issue of 72 rounds of ammunition must be sealed, and it is strictly accounted for. IOW, you don't get to carry your weapon around, you don't get to blast stuff in your backyard with your buddies. And no impressing of chicks.
Furthermore, private firearms are subject to stricter gun control than the US; both guns and ammo are registered.
Lately, however, the populace of Switzerland has decided they have a gun violence problem:
IOW, the electorate of Switzerland is demanding the Swiss Govt. tighten gun laws.
Shaken by a number of high-profile killings over the past decade a broad alliance of human rights groups, churches, women’s organisations, trade unions and centre-left political parties has succeeded in forcing a nationwide ballot on an anti-gun initiative.
