Will restrictions on Swiss gun ownership reduce crime?
Switzerland is holding a referendum aimed at restricting gun ownership. Do you own a firearm?
If approved, it would end the long tradition of Swiss men keeping their army weapons at home both during and after compulsory military service.
Weapons would have to be registered, stored in armouries and owners would have to show they know how to use them. There are an estimated two to three million guns circulating in Switzerland, but no-one knows the exact number because there is no national firearms register
Are you in Switzerland? Do you keep a weapon at home? Should gun ownership in Switzerland be restricted? Would the move reduce suicides and gun crime? Will any changes undermine the military?
