Members may be interested to see the Swiss organisations comments to the EU Commission. The short clip is followed by one from the recent Firearms Union conference and shows the Czech MEP Dita Charanzova speaking. The strong and continuing groundswell against the Commission is evident.

EU Gun Ban: Swiss Intervention in Brussels.

On 16 November a delegation of Swiss citizens headed by two members of the proTell committee visited Brussels in order to inform the Europeans what the Swiss view was on the proposed prohibition of weapons planned by Europe.

The intervention is there:

Switzerland has already accepted Recital 22 of the Commission's proposal in Brussels (COM (2015) 750), which corresponds to accepting the application of a foreign law.

This is unacceptable, see the following document to see the Swiss position on the issue:https://mega.nz/#!vBcgDT7J!fCoaSraZ259E-DkGqLZ_Ld_DBso-MmVewoPwfgJHLzI

There are voices against this situation: http://lesobservateurs.ch/2016/11/06/aux-armes-citoyens-2/

Pass this information as widely as possible, whether in Switzerland or in Europe, and keep fighting.
