On June 23 and in accordance with the Tyrolean estates, Emperor Maximilian issued the Landlibell, a defensive order that remained applicable until the 20th century. The order obliged all Tyrolean estates to defend their country within their borders. In return, the local people were exempted from military service outside the country, as long as they could defend their country autonomously. This was the foundation of the Tyrolean right to carry arms. Soon after, they organized themselves the so-called Schützenkompanien, the basis of today's marksmenship (Schützenwesen).
