Here are some countries that have looser gun laws than the US:

Lets make you look like an idiot on this one too...
Guns must be registered with the police within 72 hours and registered.
Limitations on number of guns someone can own.
Ammo limitations also apply. 1,500 rounds of hunting ammo and 200 rounds of handgun ammo are allowed.
There are storage laws.
Gun ownership is restricted in Norway without official registration documentation. You must have a need for the gun. But generally hunting and sport shooting is considered enough. For hunting, it's a 30 hour, 9 sessions course and written exam. Then an evaluation at the police department.
For sport shooting, it's a 9 hour firearm safety course with a written test. Plus the owner must then go 15 times over six months to an approved gun club and use weapons owned or borrowed from the club at the range. THEN after those six months, the applicant can apply for gun ownership with a written recommendation from the gun club president. And the police can come check on your guns should they wish.
Discretion is left largely to the police. you need a reason to get the gun. For hunting, a valid hunting permit is generally required and the weapon must be suitable for hunting the game. No AR-15s for hunting for example. For sport and hobby, the gun needs to be appropriate again for the discipline. You also need proof of the hobby. There is a criminal background check and some cases a personality test or medical health certificate requirement. Other factors like drugs or mental health disqualify someone. Handguns generally have higher standards.
Again, written and practical exams to get a license. Health clearance required. Criminal background check. Drug or alcohol abuse prevents ownership. NO conceal and carry generally without extensive checks. Must register with the police. NO open carry unless military, police or security. Ammo storage laws apply.
Magazine capacity limitations (5 rounds). Firearm storage laws such as trigger locks and securely locked containers. Can't even display ammo with a gun that can fire it. Firearm registry exists. like other countries, there are licensing requirements especially for handguns and semi-automatics. Transportation is generally heavily restricted. Same with open or conceal and carry. Fairly difficult to get open or conceal and carry unless you live out in the wilderness.
