"Just look at Switzerland."

Switzerland is a very different type of country. Small enough (8M, IIRC), very wealthy, a strong citizenship responsibility, low unemployment, immigration under strict control (despite a Geneva office about refugees...) low crime (if you exclude banks and the like, of course) and many guns are military ones people have because they are part of their regular equipment - just they really have a "well regulated militia" because they have to attend training camps regularly (my holidays on the Walensee were often underlined by the live fire exercise at the local fire range...).

Don't compare oranges with apples, especially the one Tell had to put on his son head.
