Switzerland high rate of gun ownership and it doesn't have mass shootings.
Are more rules on U.S gun ownership necessary?
From 2001 until now, Switzerland hasn't had mass shootings. The country has 2 million privately owned guns in a nation of 8.3 million people. Why it has lower rate gun violence than the US.
1- Switzerland is obsessed with getting shooting right, every year it holds a shooting contest for kids aged 13 to 17. (Educate young people to use right the gun)
2- Most Swiss men are required to learn how to use gun. All men between ages of 18-24 deemed "fit for service" are given a pistol or a rifle and trained (Educate young people to use the gun)
3- Gun seller follow strict licensing procedures. Swiss authorities decide on a local level whether to give people gun permits, keep a log of everyone who owns a gun in their region, hunting rifles and semiautomatic long arms are exempt from the permit requirement. Police don't take their duty dolling out gun licenses lightly. They might consult a psychiatrist or talk with authorities in other cantons where a prospective gun buyer has lived before to vet the person.
4- People who have been convicted of a crime or have an alcohol or drug addiction aren't allowed to buy guns.
5- Gun owner who want to carry their weapon for the defensive purpose also have to pass a test to get a license.
All the stricter gun control rules (stricter background check to help to figure out suspects do not appropriate to own a gun, require selling-records from all the gun-stores and ammunition control to help the police can predict the crimination before it happens) which state government like California is applying is gun control model of Switzerland. Why NRA is still opposing these policies?
