Switzerland has not been at war with another nation since 1815. Until 1515, Switzerland led an expansionist policy noted by many successful invasions of foreign nations.

Definitely not. Switzerland has conscription and a Militia army. After a Swiss citizen has done his initial term in the Army, he returns every year for re-training.

The gun and ammunition remain army property and must not be used except if ordered to. Israel operates a similar system.
