This article will bring you to the list of countries with the strictest gun laws in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some edifying facts. Bearing arms is a very controversial question, and now instead of saying too much about it, let’s check what the certain countries declare in connection with it.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of countries with the strictest gun laws in the world from their list. The first one is Switzerland. Switzerland has always been a peace loving country, and the number of guns per 100 residents also reflects that mentality. Switzerland did not take part in both the world conflicts, and still maintains its neutrality when it comes to conflicts. When it comes to gun laws, the country is quite strict as well. Although recreational shooting is allowed in some capacity, it is nowhere near as popular as in it is in the United States. The second country for now is Italy. Like Germany, Italy has a dark past as well. Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italy has been keen on condemning guns and gun ownership. The revised constitution of Italy does not allow civilians to carry and own even bullets, let alone firearms. However, Italy does have a pretty strong small arms industry, but Italian-made firearms are only meant for exporting to other countries. At last, but not least let’s check out United Kingdom related to bearing arms. Like most European nations, the United Kingdom has always been against civilian ownership of guns. Which is also reflected in their highly restrictive gun laws and gun control policy. You just cannot own a hand gun in the United Kingdom, and you have to acquire a firearms license to own shotguns or rifles, which you can use for hunting purposes.
