    Anyone know about the gun law in Switzerland?

    What's required to own a handgun? Do they have self-defense laws? I was researching it on the web, but I couldn't find a straight answer.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    It will be on Google, but your search terms need to match what you seek. Swiss laws are not printed in English! The Swiss don't even spell Swiss like we do, it is "Suisse."
