Very important point. The question itself concedes that there is a public safety issue to be balanced against the right.

I assert that there may be an inverse public safety component. Switzerland has almost NO gun crime and every household has a real assault weapon and a cache of ammo.

What's a criminal going do in an environment like that, LOL?
