Baloney. You need to apply for a permit to purchase firearms, you need to provide lots and lots of information, and there is no “gun show loophole” or anything like it. In fact, selling a sun privately is even more difficult than buying from a commercial dealer, where all purchases are tracked.

Maybe Salami or Pepperoni? Swiss able bodied men of military age are issued a firearm and must take it home with them after military training. Much of the invented (by the gun crowd) nonsense comes from this statistic distorting bit.
