Hello Guys,

While I was going thru the Atlantic, I stumbled upon an article which started with a Parallel sentence as follows:

In February 2011, Swiss citizens voted in a referendum that called for a national gun registry and for firearms owned by members of the military to be stored in public arsenals.

I am not able to make sense of the parallel structure of this sentence. Is there an error?

Regards,

The parallelism comes from the fact that the referendum called for two things.
The referendum called:
1) for a national gun registry
and
2) for firearms owned by members of the military to be stored in public arsenal

If you reduce it down even more the sentence would be:

Swiss citizens voted in a referendum that called for X and for Y
