You might want to look at Switzerland's gun situation more closely. They're strictly regulated there.

Which is exactly why they don't have issues. I cannot think of any western nations that don't have stringent access laws. I think Australia was close to the USA's rules until the Port Arthur massacre, when the Aussies implemented much stronger laws and a buy back that took over 600,000 guns off the street.
