Poll shows city dwellers more in favour of tighter gun laws

National News // By Tay Kinnear // April 5, 2019

Opinion polls are showing a lead for those who wish to bring in tighter gun laws, but there’s a clear difference in opinion depending on where voters live.

Switzerland is being told that it has to bring in tougher laws if it wants to stay a member of the Schengen passport free zone.

The poll, carried out by Tamedia, shows city dwellers are in favour of more restrictions with around 60% agreeing – but in rural areas more than half are against.

If voters reject the new laws, it’s likely Switzerland will be thrown out of Schengen. The vote will be on 19th May.
