Can i buy a gun as a H1B visa holder? I went through a 20 hour road trip and i was si scared when driving through some sketchy towns throughout the night.

If i had a gun on me i would have felt a little more secure. Especially since i was travelling with my gf.

    If you feel scared just like that, you are not yet ready for gun responsibility. High likelihood of freezing up or shooting a random person. First, get some street smarts.

    Pepper spray. A can of wasp spray. A baseball bat. A knife. Even a lacrosse ball in a sock sling makes a pretty killer defense weapon. I actually have a pair of nunchaku in the glovebox and know how to use them.

    A gun doesn’t necessarily make you all that much safer. There’s plenty of non lethal self defense tools and skills you can learn that are more effective.

    But staying out of sketch bomb parts of town is probably best. In those parts of town, the people you’re scared of also have guns. And feeling brave with a gun will likely just get you killed.

    The gun doesn’t make the man....

    Just don't take gun ownership lightly. Follow the law, respect firearms, safty and security, learn and train.

  • This is America, you have the right to own a gun if you want one to feel safe

    • That’s cool that you listen to his podcast, I’m glad to hear you are willing to expose yourself to the other perspective. I have listened to his Sam Harris discussion, it was great, I respect both of them a lot. Not a JP fan myself and disagree with him if he said atheists can’t be decent.

      That’s a good point you bring up, I should indeed read some of the works of the FFs. I already read the Shapiro so too late cant unread it now 😂. Although I honestly am trying to read more books about deep learning and further my career right now instead of this fascinating topic

      Okay then why dont u give me a gist of it. I am sure this idea that “constitution is based on bible” is such a ridicoulus claim that it can be debunked anywhere anytime. US constitution was rhe first ever constitution in the world that didnt mention god and religion (except to say no favouritism) and it was a huge advancement of himanity and i am proud of it for that reason.

    Yes; depending on state, if you are a legal resident and meet the minimal requirements, you are considered a US citizen relative to firearms.

    Which state? In CA you can probably buy it, but next to impossible to get CCW in most counties where blinders live. Which means, it wouldn't have helped you in the situation described.

      Roku is wrong. There is an exception in Federal law for hunting purpose for non citizen. To demonstrate the hunting purpose, you have to go throught Hunter education and obtain a hunting license. I did it when I was on F1 in CA. it went through Federal and state background check without problems. Only problem I know of is IL, they have to obtain FOID from state police before buying a gun and they don't issue FOID to non green card.

    Don't know of any "gun of h1" ( will make a cool band name though)
    Also as a H1B visa holder u can buy gun. Though not legally in USA. But for sure in some other countries.
