DAMMMMMMMMMN!!! Thats the shit right there!
**EDIT** Upon checking it out, only active military members are required to keep their full auto rifle and sealed 50 rounds in their home. When they get out of the military they have the option to keep their rifle and if they do, the rifle is sent out and converted to semi auto. You can conceal carry there but only with a permit like here unless they are military. Still not a bad deal though!
Yes, but all males of a certain age are "active military members". I met a guy in London from Switzerland who had his grandpa's service rifle, his dads, and his all at his home. They also have shooting fests and stuff all the time.
Hell, how do you think switzerland wasnt overrun by the nazis?
The Swiss K31 service rifle was accurate as fuck and issued at large to the populace. An estimated 1 million men were ready for battle should the need have arose. The Nazis would have been batshit crazy to try and overrun Switzerland, which would have essentially been huge ass mountain ranges full of snipers.
Legend has it that a Nazi general told the Swiss commander, "I have 5 million men ready to invade, I know that you control a mere 1 million. What will you do should we mobilize and attack?". The Swiss commander responded, "I will tell all of my men to fire 5 shots each, and then go home".
That country is fucking awesome.
