The left wing political groups tried their hand at sensible gun laws in Switzerland and failed. Reading some of the arguments in the article shows that the crazy lefties in Switzerland think just like the crazy lefties in America.
And 300 deaths a year? As armed as that country is - 1.7 million issued military weapons - and they have 300 deaths from firearms annually, which tells me that it's not the blasted guns. I bet they would be better served taking away bleach, or swimming pools.
