Worried about federal law? We've got you covered. Here's the information you will need in order to participate with the team:
An alien admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa is prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition unless the alien falls within one of the exceptions provided in 18 U.S.C. 922(y)(2), such as: a valid hunting license or permit, admitted for lawful hunting or sporting purposes, certain official representatives of a foreign government, or a foreign law enforcement officer of a friendly foreign government entering the United States on official law enforcement business.
[18 U.S.C. 922(g)(5)(B) and 922(y)(2); 27 CFR 478.11 and 478.32]
A non-immigrant alien that possess a valid hunting license from a State within the United States or falls within any of the other exceptions or exemptions that allow non-immigrant aliens to possess firearms may rent firearms to hunt or to use at a shooting range.
[18 U.S.C. 922(a)(5) and (9), 922(g)(5)(B) and 922(y); 27 CFR 478.99(a) and (c)(5)]
The AZ hunting license appropriate for international students is the NON-RESIDENT hunting license. Please make sure you do not get the RESIDENT hunting license, as your firearms may be seized like these UA students.
At this time we are interpreting "...receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition..." to include use of team assets. If you are an international student and looking to join the WildGats, you MUST present a valid non-resident hunting license or permit and keep it current for your tenure with the WildGats.
You MUST be fluent in English to join the team. Understanding range commands and instruction is critical to maintaining range safety.
