Has anyone explored options or successfully purchased / owned handguns while being on H1B. I have i140 approved and living in Phoenix. since GC is decades away, trying to see if there are easy options, which will not land me in trouble. It will be for shooting at ranges and self defense.

Not sure second amendment applies for alien residents but if you’re find out, enlighten the group.

I don’t think you can possess a firearm as non citizen as per federal law. You can check the AZ law , but I doubt it. Check with your local office Don’t look for easy option, that by definition will land you into trouble

Thanks for the response, typically you need to have a GC but seems like there are some exceptions if you own hunting license. I will check on that part soon.

Thought you had to be a citizen to carry a license.

Why do you feel threatened OP? Not judging, just interested in learning what’s the reasoning for the self defense that will necessitate a fire arm?

Would’ve been more meaningful if you actually didn’t respond...

I think you can. I absolutely hate the idea of guns but just out of curiosity asked the question in a gun shop. Depending upon the states, you will need documentation but you are allowed. Not entirely sure of process as never followed up.

Would it make sense to do a cap on H1b application based on the country of birth and have no Cap on Green Card. Then this solves all the problems. (We don’t care about future applicants, focus on now)

I am a SC in Deloitte with 12 years of work ex. Amazon recruiter has reached out to me for a Sr. TPM role. I have already cleared HM round. My doubt is as I have heard work culture in Amazon is crazy. Would it be better for me to go for a TPM role instead of Sr. TPM. Not sure how the responsibilities differ between the two roles

I’m an Analyst and my SM will constantly call me to talk shit about my PPMD and M or others on my project but then tell me to “keep this just between us.” Like why do y’all do this? I just sit quietly, agree to try to appease him, or give a rational on why something might have happened. Why do you y’all do this? Is it because I’m so low on rank and you’re not afraid that I’ll say something?
