Gun policy in California
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:37:40 AM »
Going through the gun policy in California and learnt that I need to stay in the US for at 90 days before purchasing a gun. Unexpected  :(
May the force be with you & me.

IT'S  COMIFORNIA 🤪.
It's their next step to banning all guns.
Why anybody who believes in the Constitution, the flag, and patriotism, would ever live there is beside me.

Before everyone starts foaming at the mouth about California, I believe the OP is neither a permanent resident, nor a US Citizen. As such, this is a Federal restriction, rather than a State one.

18 U.S.C. 922(g)(5)(B) and 922(y)(2); 27 CFR 478.11 and 478.32

Quote
An alien admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa is prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition unless the alien falls within one of the exceptions provided in 18 U.S.C. 922(y)(2), such as: a valid hunting license or permit, admitted for lawful hunting or sporting purposes, certain official representatives of a foreign government, or a foreign law enforcement officer of a friendly foreign government entering the United States on official law enforcement business.”

So, you can rent one, but not own one.

Even legally here on a visa, he still needs to establish a residential address, which is where the 90 days comes in.
