The Brünnlisau shooting range in Switzerland has its targets on the other side of a major road. And it's safe. Here's how and why. Thanks to everyone at the Schiessanlage Brünnlisau!

    This video has a correction: the subtitles should say "Schusswaffen [firearms]" not "Schutzwaffen [defensive weapons]". My transcriber and translator was German, but not Swiss German, so it's an understandable mistake! There's unfortunately no way to fix that in-video, but hopefully it still makes sense.

      I've been following along with the German for the videos but the Swiss German still trips me up quite a bit. It's an understandable mistake, things get slurred a lot in Swiss German!

    No matter the safety precautions and the seemingly impossibility of hitting a car, I don't think I would feel comfortable shooting over a road like that. It would also likely be illegal to have a rifle range like this here in the US.
    Not sure about everywhere here but a lot of states (if not all) have laws about discharging a firearm within a certain distance of a road or highway. I know in my state, if you're within 500 feet of a home (that is not your home), road, highway, etc, it is illegal to fire a gun outside of a justified self defense situation. I think these laws are usually more about noise than safety and I think the road one is in the hunting regulations in my state (don't want hunters shooting an animal from their truck from the road).

    I won't be talking about gun rights since I'm British but here's how gun regulation saves lives.
    But jokes aside this was a great video explaining some of the examples of why gun regulations can be so important in day to day lives in a country filled with guns

    I’ve drove past there! 😳😂 I’m sure there’s one in Romania too? We were driving on a brand new motorway that had not long opened in 2015 and saw these great big concrete pillars on one side of the fly over and a shooting club on the other? Never really looked into it before 🤔 couldn’t tell you exactly where it was though.

      Good thing no one is trying to "take guns away". They're just trying to make the process of acquiring a firearm more thorough so it's much more difficult for criminals or people with mental health issues to get one. The entire notion that people are trying to "take your guns away" is just fearmongering used to win votes.

      It's almost like having extremely strict gun laws and regulations (like Switzerland does) works. And allowing anyone and everyone to just walk into a walmart and buy whatever gun they want the second they turn 18 with bare minimum safety checks is a dumb idea. Who knew.

    High gun ownership works in Switzerland because they have mandatory military service so most gun owners understand gun safety. Unlike the USA when you throw in a bunch of LARPers.
    That's how you end up with that guy from a couple weeks ago who chased down, shot, and killed a guy who was lost and parked in his driveway....then still claimed self defense.

    I can't imagine anyone shooting a car intentionally in this scenario, but I've two questions.
    Is there a risk of cliping the top of the wall and the trajectory being lowered under the right circumstances?
    And are the drivers aware of the range overhead?..

      It might have been possible if the wall was incredibly thin that it bent the trajectory of the bullet when hitting the wall But seeing how the wall is 30 cm (about 12 inch) think and how the original trajectory of riffle is somewhat upwards, I would like to say that it is impossible for that to happen

    America doesn't have a gun problem so much as it has many economic, psychological and cultural problems. As an American I've lived in many places that have high rates of gun ownership per capita (that's for American standards which means probably some of the most armed places in the world). These places were safe and gun ownership in these places was a non issue. If you are to look at gun violence in America you'd have to look at various different areas, as you'll find most parts actually have comparable crime rates to many European nations

    • JamesT

      @Luis Dawnfinder I agree. Area is everything. And in America the deadly areas are higher than other developed nations because of guns. To be clear I am not anti-gun so don't get that twisted. I just think there should be stricter laws and checks. America is a big place. It requires big laws. Just my opinion.

    • Luis Dawnfinder

      21 hour ago

      It's not about crime rate. If you compare America's crime rate to other countries it's really not that drastic of a difference. The difference is that in America DEADLY crime is 10x more common because guns are involved. You're just as likely to be the victim of a crime in America as you are in the UK or Canada or most other developed nations. But in America it's WAY more likely that people are going to get shot and killed because a gun was involved. Guns do not stop criminals, they just make crime more deadly for EVERYONE both victims and perpetrators.

    In my opinion the range is not designed properly. The fact that you can stand and fire from a braced position, leaning against a wall, or offhand at the targets with the road and cars in view proves it has happened before and will again. A negligent discharge from the shooting area will happen sooner or later. Don't tell me the Swiss never negligently discharge.

    It's simply not true that Switzerland has only 1-2 incidents with guns per year. When you check the statistics, you'll find that Switzerland has 200 - 400 deaths with guns per year. The biggest part are suicides, but even if you subtract them, you still have 20 - 60 gun deaths per year. That is a lot more than 1 - 2...

      @JamesT False, it was because of the liberal agenda in our school system. The vast majority of teachers and administrators are not right leaning republicans. The media portrayed guns in a negative light and politicians went along with it. As much as Im not a fan of the NRA, the one thing they do well is teaching gun safety to kids. Many schools had the Eagle Eddie program but the took that away too. But your narrative is false saying it was a bi partisan agreement. This has been going on since the 80's.

      Gun safety was removed from schools because of both legal obligations and the growing notion that teaching kids how to use firearms and how to shoot things was probably a bad idea. It was not a partisan issue aka liberal vs conservative. It was widely agreed upon by both sides at the time that it was simply not appropriate. You can have whatever opinion you want on the matter but don't buy into or make up lies about it being some "liberal" agenda. It was universally agreed upon at the time.

    Dont pop your head up so quickly to check your shot placement. Pause so you dont effect the shot

      Well except they do. But their rappers don't write songs about how evil and corrupt the police are because their police/society didn't intentionally oppress and harass an entire race for many decades resulting in a culture of crime to survive. Funny how that works.

    The gun problem in the US isn't about guns. It's about gun culture.

      @Coval At least with a sword killing someone was extremely intimate and personal. You'd often times be looking your target in the eyes from a foot away as they collapse from your sword. With guns you can just play whack a mole without a second thought.

      Ah yes lets go back to the time when we lined up 5,000 - 20,000 men on each side and had them charge at each other to butcher the other side with swords
