I've lived in SE Asia, Africa and central America

I can tell you right now the freest place is still the US, despite all the BS that has been going on lately.

In pretty much all other countries, if you can even own a gun it is considered a privilege not a right. This includes places like Panama and other popular US expat locations in Central-South America. Many people will mention Switzerland, but there are many misconceptions about gun laws there. They are not as free as everyone seems to think.

Not that owning fire arms is the only freedom you should care about, but gun laws are a decent barometer as to how free a country is I have found and the rest of the world is very much tyrannical in this area.
