You need to pass the background check, and be an American citizen. Thats if you obey the law. According to the liberal media, you can get any gun you want in New York on any street corner, after all the criminals have plenty of guns, street sweepers, AK's, ect. Guns must be everywhere in NY.

Do I even need to say it again? ;)

here in the states it is fairly simple, Fill out a paper giving name, address, SSN, then you are asked a series of simple questions like "have you every been convicted" or "have you ever renounced your citizenship" ect. and then the gun dealer calls the police asking for a background check, if you pass you are on your way with a new handgun. All you info is recorded in a data base also.

The ability to obtain a firearm is pretty dependant on what state you live in. Here in Arizona, you need to pass a background check and be either a citizen or a resident alien (LEGAL immigrant with a green card). If you have a Concaled Carry Permit (which is "shall issue") you don't need the background check.

I grew up in NY and it was like pulling teeth for a hand gun. Rifles and shotguns were not regulated at the time. New York City requires a permit for all firearms. If you want a rundown on state gun laws, check out http://www.packing.org, the NRA has a state laws page, but I don't remember the url.

What is the process for owning a handgun in New Zealand for a private citizen?

Just come over our pourus border with Mexico and then join a gang. No background checks, no paperwork. Its that easy!....no seriously, I met a guy with a sweedish accent a few months ago at our range, he was shooting an MP5 I think, class 3 fully automatic. I wish I could afford those kind of toys! :---

If you are legit and dont use drugs, never been to prison, then you are good to go. But you have to show that you are a legal citizen, not a temp. alien. there are also out of state laws to deal with.

You don't have to be a citizen, just a permanent resident with a clean record. My hubby and I both got "permits to buy" here in North Carolina before we became citizens. I know that different states have different laws, but as far as the feds are concerned, you just need to be a permanent resident (green card holder).
