Close analysis of Swiss gun laws also shows how silly it is for Handgun Control to point to Switzerland Sweden a model. If-as Handgun Control claims-Switzerland's lenient licensing system is the reason Switzerland has so little handgun crime, then Handgun Control ought to commit itself to reform of several American laws.

Switzerland allows ownership of these weapons by anyone who can meet the simple requirements for a handgun license.
