    I think switzerland has the fewest laws, and are the more lax on gun control. I think I heard somewhere, that with the proper licensing, an individual can own any small arm. Even full-autos. On top of that, any men age 18-42 are required to own a weapon, provided they are not criminals, and Switzerland has the most weapons per person than any country on earth (so I heard).

    I suspect that since the UN thinks they own all of Antarctica in some silly form, it has really lousey gun laws.

    Someone said on a thread here , to paraphrase, that places like Afghanistan and Somalia offered the kind of freedom we should have here...I'm going to take being a subject of my repressive Mommy's Republic of Massachusetts' laws over the good fortune of living in those gun lovers' paradises.

    Somehow, the perception that law has something to do with being civilized has infected the "correct" thinkers of the world.

    The common man can exist just fine without much law. It's only bureaucrats, politicians LEOs and criminals who need rules, regulations and law. Rules, regulations and law are also how smart sociopaths protect themselves from retribution and true justice.

    Some folks just need killing.

    A few years back I read (I think) that Chezkoslovakia (is that even close?) has the most lax gun laws, being the country most recently, at the time, having broken the stranglehold of communism. Speaking of commies, here come the grammer police!

    Stay safe.

    I would imagine that the Vatican City has no firearms laws.

    When I was a kid I used to go to Switzerland and we stayed with friends. The room I slept in had 4 full-autos guns. I remember as a kid they really looked very impressive... all unlocked with ammo....

    Somalia, hands down!

    That's an easy one! It's Somalia. I lived there for awhile and still talk to some people I befriended, here & there, so I know.

    You can carry ANYTHING, ANYWHERE! No limitations. You can walk down the street slinging a couple of assault rifles and have a couple machine guns on your pickup. Ha, ha, ha, it's the truth.

    And there are no restrictions on usage. If some BG crosses your path, just out him and his buddies on the spot.

    Oh, and if you like the Wild Wild West like it used to be, you should also check out the northern borders of Kenya. You got shiftas running around in the desert (they're like banditos in the Wild West), you can out them too. That's if they don't out you first.

    You have absolute gun freedom! :D

    Now, someone suggested Afghanistan. I'm not sure about that. The problem with places like that is that tomorrow the dominant tribe can impose sharia law -- and I don't care how wild it seems, sharia law is tough on gun owners especially if you end up using. I lived in Saudi Arabia for years and saw how that worked and it ain't pretty.

    Switzerland has lots of laws, about everything, it's perhaps the most regulated country in Europe. They can own guns there because the law allows it, not because they don't have gun laws. Men of military age are not required to own guns, they are required to do military service. Reservists, almost all men of a certain age, keep their gear at home, including personal weapons. Other European countries also have national guard/home guard forces who store weapons and equipment at home. As to the number of guns per person, I know that Finland and Norway both have a significantly higher number than Switzerland, so does the US. I read somewhere that Yemen is the number one country in the world regarding the number of guns per capita, if that's true the Swiss are at the most number five...

    I hadn't heard that the UN owns Antarctica. There are a few countries that make territorial claims though; Norway, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile if I didn't forget any. So it's probably ok to bring a gun as long as you stay out of the British sector. :) Seriously, I guess you would be subject to the laws of whatever country you come from, or the country where your ship is registered. If your government has signed the Antarctic Treaty, I don't think you're allowed to do much of anything down there without approval from your own government. The US is a signatory, so as a US citizen you would be subject to US law.

    Near as I can figure from spending one day in Yemen, the only law is that you WILL have at least one gun. I saw guys walking down the street with genuine AK-47's, Mosins, Enfields, and several with what appeared to be Webley revolvers. Some might have been Nagant revolvers, but I was too busy staring at all the AK's to tell.

    Israel, every one there carries guns. the military mandates all the troops be ready at a moments notice so you see many of them in their off time in civilian cloths with M-16's slung over their shoulders and a spare mag tucked in a waistband. non military men carry handguns in plain view or sometimes in a IWB holster. it seemed only the older women (non military) didn't carry. even the military women had sidearms....

    Israel probably has more firearms laws than California. Even their active duty defense forces need special permission to have a magazine inserted into their rifles (they devised some nifty carriers to keep them at the ready though).

    I never saw civilians walking around the streets openly armed in the PRK....

    the military guys off duty can't keep the mag in the rifle, no, but they do keep them rubber banded to the side of the rifle.

    I spent a week in tel aviv for official business during new years 2000, and I never saw so many people in my life with handguns opely displayed. They may have more laws but something tells me that their laws have some common sense in them.

    Required

    I have heard that you are not allowed ashore on Spitzbergen without a rifle.

    Bob F., it's spelled The Czech Republic now...home of the great CZ-UB. I think thier laws are considered good, but they did crack down after the heady afterglow of ditching communisim.
    I like AZ law, myself...

    Spitzbergen, or more correctly Svalbard, is Norway. No special gun laws, except that you're not allowed to walk around outside the settlements without at least one person in the group having a gun and knowing how to use it - for most tourists that is best handled by hiring a guide. I get the impression that the locals up there are tired of idiot tourists (foreigners) who bring guns but have no gun culture... Unsafe gun handling btw, is illegal (much in the same way unsafe car handling is illegal, you would probably call it reckless endangerment).

    Oh, for those who have no idea where Svalbard is, the reason for guns being required in the outdoors is that there are more polar bears than people there.

    Please remember that it isn't the guns in Somalia or Afghanistan that are the problem, it's the people, and the culture.

    From http://www.jpfo.org/israel-firearms.htm

    So it sounds like they have very loose carry laws, but very restrictive ownership laws.
