Swiss voters approved, in a referendum on Sunday, by a two-thirds majority to tighten gun controls, including stricter controls for semi-automatic weapons, bringing the non-EU member state's rules in line with EU rules introduced after the 2015 Paris attacks. The result means Switzerland remains a member of the passport-free Schengen zone and the Dublin joint system for handling asylum requests. Nearly half of Swiss households own a gun.
