According to a report by Business Insider, Switzerland hasn't had a mass shooting since 2001, when a man stormed the parliament in Zug, killing fourteen people and then himself. Despite having about 2 million privately owned guns in the nation of 8.3 million people, the country's overall murder rate is nearly zero. The National Rifle Association often uses Switzerland of an example as to increased rules for gun ownership are unnecessary. However, in a recent article, Business Insider reports that the Swiss have, not only specific rules and regulations for gun use, but also a long history of training their citizens in handling firearms.
