Good article.
It is very revealing to explore the firearm laws in other countries such as Norway or Switzerland as well.
Usually the pro-gun folks like to make the comparisons without knowing the actual details of the policies in other countries.
It is all part of the fantasy that exists about US gun problems in gun knuts.

There is no comparing a unitary government's gun laws, with no written constitution, to a country that is a federalism based country with a written Constitution and a set of restrictions on the federal government regarding firearms.

I am fairly certain that EVERYTHING can be compared, in one way or another, and the form of government has little to do with the regulatory policies that address firearm management. If your circuitous sentence is intended to allude to the 2nd A., that political view is not really part of this particular discussion.

The type of government has everything to do with the "regulatory policies."

That's right. So why do so many people makes such comparisons?

The same regulations, which refer to the administrative process of a government such as taxation, traffic laws, zoning, can be similar throughout many different governmental structures, especially in typical Western parliamentary democracies. So the presence or absence of a constitution is immaterial although Israel actually has a set of laws very similar to a constitution called Basic Laws
