are the laws / rules any different for non US citizens? I'm Canadian but moving to LA and wondering how I go about getting a firearm. Thanks.

You're not a citizen of the state, so good luck getting a firearm legally in California.

If you have a green card you won't have any problem provided you can satisfy residency requirements if you are shopping for a handgun (have a rental agreement or utility bills in your name). If you are on some sort of temporary visa you can't buy a firearm.

The only additional requirement that legal resident aliens have is to prove residency in the individual state for 90 days. This can be done with copies of utility bills.

I think there is an exemption for diplomats too.

If you have a hunting license as well, in theory at least.
