Swissinfo – Switzerland, a nation of gun lovers

On the web site of Swissinfo from May 4th 2019, you can look at a selection of pictures from my photo essay on the Swiss love for guns.

Shooting is a favourite leisure sport in Switzerland. Its roots date back to the late Middle Ages, but especially the 19th century when shooting became an important part of national identity. But gun lovers fear a new weapons law could spoil their fun. Swiss shooters and hunters fear that the European weapons directive being put to the vote on May 19 could jeopardise their hobby, even though Bern has managed to negotiate some concessions from Brussels, particularly on army weapons.
