Swiss vote on banning weapons exports

The Swiss will vote on November 29 on a controversial initiative that would ban the export of Swiss manufactured military weapons and ammunition. Opponents say the ban would cost jobs, while supporters say lives should come before profits. As the initiative advocates changes to the constitution, it has to be approved by both the Swiss people and the cantons. (Julie Hunt, TV Archive SF)
