    Actually, in Switzerland only men who have done their military service and are in the reserves have their military firearm at home, with the ammunition stored separately and sealed and with regular checks on the seals (and I assume harsh penalties if the ammo box was unsealed). So it is not as if in Switzerland anyone and everyone is running around with a firearm or even has easy access to it.

    I don't claim that either the BBC's article or TedPride's message accurately reflects the situation in Switzerland. I don't have enough information to make a case either way, I just remembered the article after reading this post and thought the opposite view should also be reflected.

    My personal views are mixed. I grew up in an area with a lot of guns, which were used for hunting. I now live in a place where guns are very restricted, and mostly limited to sporting clubs. I'm inclined to think that there isn't a universal best way, but that it instead depends a lot on the place and the people in it.
