Default Can a Canadian buy a gun in the US??

So, I'm probably gonna live in the US a few months a year, not a citizen.

Can I buy a gun in Nevada?

Don't know if you can buy one in Nevada but a close friend of mine from Canada just bought a rifle for her husband here in Minnesota.

I believe if you have a green card you can buy a firearm.

I dont believe it would be possible at a gun store. But from a private part ... yes

Is the requirement different, or would that be illegal?

Where do American's advertise their guns privately?

If you are a resident alien (have a green card) you have to show documentation that you have been in the state continuously for 90 days you can. As long as your background check is good.

or

If you are a non-resident alien (visiting on a temporary visa) and you have a hunting license.


Here is something for you to look at http://www.international.gc.ca/contr...ex.aspx?view=d


If you decide to try and buy one from a person in the US (non dealer). First I would not tell them you are from Canada. And second, you might want to really think about that before you do/try it. I am 99% sure you would be considered a trafficker. Since you more or less are going to sneak it back into Canada since you dont have an export license (and I hope they dont find it crossing the boarder).
