can guarantee Only a " Yes " that Switzerland will remain a member of the common European border space Schengen. This statement stands in the centre of the campaign for the new weapons law. She comes: In the last Tamedia survey to vote from the Sunday 60 percent of the advocates reported that the whereabouts of Schengen is the most important Argument.
Since the beginning of the vote fight, the opponent is looking for a way to invalidate this Argument. They are of the view that the EU had an interest to leave Switzerland after a ' no ' to the weapons act in the Schengen area. A reason that you cite: Many of the EU States not to take it so exactly with the provisions.
Currently, this view is underlined, often with a number: Germany is contrary to the 27 provisions of the Schengen acquis. For example, in a letter to the editor, written by Bernhard Lampert, President of the Federation of the Swiss to protect veterans. In the social media widely used by opponents of the firearms act this number. "We have asked our members," says Martin Fricker, national Director of the no campaign.
Unchecked, now it turns out. A spokesman for the German interior Ministry, said to this newspaper: "This can't be right. We don't know and don't know where it comes from." In writing the inner holds of Any violations of Schengen would result in an EU-Treaty violation proceedings against Germany. Such a procedure was against Germany because of Schengen is currently not pending.

secured "There are no current proceedings against Germany because of Schengen", it shall, on request of the EU Commission. A method due to police controls in the border area was set to 2017. In a second case, the EU Commission criticized the temporary controls at the internal borders of the Schengen area, Germany and other EU States since the refugee crisis. They are permissible. Schengen allows you the States, if you make a threat to internal security.
where is the number? Campaign Manager Martin Fricker refers to SVP national councillor Werner Salzmann. The Co-President of the no Committee, says he has picked up the number at the beginning of the year, during a visit with a parliamentary group in Berlin. At a reception in the Chancellery, you have a conversation partner. He himself had mentioned the number in the vote fight never, says Salzmann. The source or the authenticity had not been secured.
protect veteran Lampert to have found the number in "a kind of self-Declaration" of the Federal Chancellor's office on its Website. Not able to submit it however. A custom online search does not return any hits. The spokesman for the German interior Ministry, says: "If Germany is in breach of Schengen rules, we can't determine for themselves. That would be a matter for the EU."
Only for buses for the EU-States
With the new weapons law in Switzerland is implementing the new weapons policy of the EU. To do this, is obliged, as a Schengen member. Switzerland does not, this happens in accordance with the bilateral Schengen agreement: The agreement shall enter into force within six months. Unless, Switzerland and the EU member States in a joint Committee 90 days to a different solution.

Unlike the opponents of the firearms act, with its References to the handling of individual EU member States with the Schengen provisions, close to want, is a whereabouts of Switzerland in the European border space, but not sure.
Before Germany was referred to by the opponents of the firearms act often to the Czech Republic. The country has not implemented the weapons Directive, and the European court of justice.

A clause stating that the Schengen membership ends in case of non-implementation of rules, does not exist for the EU countries.

This is actually a violation of relevant state laws. If he fails in this duty may be imposed on him in a second process buses."
