Decline and fall: first it’s the UBS ratting out its customers, and now this…

Anti-gun supporters have collected enough signatures to force a nationwide vote on banning more than one million military weapons from Swiss households.
Guns are stored in homes under Switzerland’s militia system, but opponents say the practice is too dangerous, pointing to deaths and domestic violence cases involving army weapons.[…]
A security study published last year suggested that support for keeping weapons at home was falling. It found that just 34 per cent of the population was in favour, compared with 57 per cent in 1989. Women and young people were particularly against the practice.

What’s next: no more chocolate and cuckoo clocks? Damn you, women and young people.
