Well I.P.S.C. is an international shooting competition group that has over 50 countries in it, so I would say there are alot of countries with basic
firearm ownership that is at least possible. The likely scenario is that it is regulated a bit more than the US but not necessarily, we are not as
free as you might think and other countries have been progressing while we have been edging towards socialism and are losing our freedoms. To clarify
the last statement a "priviledge" is not a freedom and as soon as the gov't regulates anything it becomes a priviledge and not a right or freedom.
Perhaps you can find the info on IPSC's website. I can name some countries off-hand.
Various South American countries the exact ones escape me right now
Some of the former soviet sattellite countries as well.
I might be wrong, but I do believe that israel is the most armed nation in the world. I believe I read that in a school text book back in 1995. I
don't know if that helps, but lets face it, you would own a weapon if groups like Hamas was your next door neighbor.
Iraqis are alowed to have an automatic weapon per adult male per household, w/50 rounds if I remember correctly, but they have to register the weapon
by law. The only problem with this is no one inforces the law.
