I have a boss, who's a non-american (Canadian), and claims he can't sell me his rifle because he's a non-american. Is there such legistlation that prohibits non-americans from selling weapons?

This is the first time I've ever heard of someone who's not an American Citizen wearing a tin foil cap.

If he can lawfully possess a firearm then he can lawfully sell it.

I've bought and sold a bunch as a non citizen. He just needs his visa/green card at the FFL as you need to record either your alien number or your entry number.

Isn't amazing that the UK won't sell a knife to a British citizen but the United States is perfectly fine with selling an Enhanced Battle Rifle to a British citizen :D?

How do non-US citizens get interested in guns anyhow? Most European citizens I've ever met have been mortified and terrified that regular people can own guns.

I always buy using a British credit card:-)

You would be suprised how many European countries allow gun owership. France, Germany, and Sweeden are all countries where I have friends with pleanty of guns. The militia system in Switizland mandates gun ownership!

I guess you haven't met too many Europeans.

I'm another non-American (Canadian) gun owner in California saying your boss can sell whatever he can legally own.

In many cases, an American gun owner invites them out to the range. That's how I've done it with my wife and former colleagues.

Take them to the range.

Maybe it is just what the media allows us to see, but I would have to say per capita, Europeans are for more strict gun control than Americans. That is obviously just based on my own personal experiences. I have family in Spain that have a few firearms....they are strictly licensed though.

There is a big difference in mentality when it comes to gun ownership in Europe. Here in the states its looked at by many if not most as a way to protect yourself and your family when nobody else is there to count on....a sense of independence. In Europe gun ownership is looked at more as a hobby with no real purpose. Of course there are exceptions, but the mentality is totally different.

Personally, I am happy my relatives decided to brave the Atlantic and start a new life here in the New World. Damn proud to be an American.

of course dictators (and those who overthrow them) dislike an armed populace

Being an Ex-Limey I left Grotesque Britain back in 98 after they took my handguns and elected a bunch of pseudo-socialists pukes. Britain is lost as is most of Europe that's why I'm proud to be an American (by adoption). :D

God Bless America.

+ 1.

It took me two more years than you to escape after Blair was elected. Easy choice - loose my guns and pay tax to house a bunch of "single parents" or take my education to America where I could earn a good living and shoot!
