Swiss Voters Approve Tighter Gun Control, Avoid EU Clash

According to Reuters, Swiss voters agreed on Sunday to adopt tighter gun controls in line with changes to European Union rules, heading off a clash with Brussels.

The restrictions, which apply to non-EU member Switzerland because it is part of Europe’s Schengen open-border system, had raised fear among shooting enthusiasts ahead of the vote.

The initial EU proposal provoked an outcry because it meant a ban on the Swiss tradition of ex-soldiers keeping their assault rifles.
