Swiss Say 'No' to Gun Control Vote
Swiss voters have thrown out an initiative to prohibit the possession of firearms at homes in a nationwide referendum that sought to curb gun violence in the country.
Final results showed that 20 out of 26 cantons were against while 56.3 percent of the population rejected the initiative, AFP reported on Sunday.
The proposal was introduced by an alliance of non-governmental groups and center-left parties in order to have rifles stored in armories instead of keeping them at residential areas.'
