Swiss voters will vote on Sunday in a referendum that will determine whether new arms controls will be imposed in line with their European partners in the Schengen region, who have already tightened weapons laws following extremist attacks in Europe.

Supporters of the new restrictions, including the Swiss parliament and the government, believe there is a need to adopt measures similar to those taken by the European Union following extreme attacks in France to ensure police cooperation, and strong economic relations with Switzerland’s partners in the Schengen region, ABC News reported.

Opponents insist that those restrictions will do little to stop terrorism, that they will mainly suppress those who legally possess weapons, and impose what they see as the latest dictates from Brussels to the rich Alpine state.

Switzerland, a member of the Schengen region but not part of the EU’s 28 member states, has not faced major extremist attacks such as in France, Belgium, Britain and Germany in recent years, which have claimed dozens of lives.
