Uh, what state are you in? If I can recall correctly many if not most states will let non citizens apply. In CA I don't think he would need a permit to carry on his business property. Your state may vary.

The only way he can have a gun is if he was a rep. of another nation working for his gov. From what you said in your post there is no way for him to even buy a gun and not brake the law. Any time stuff like this comes up go to www.atf.org

If he's got a green card and he's a here as an immigrant things are easier. If he's here as a non-immigrant it's trickier. Federal law mandates that non-residents, and especially non-immigrants, cannot buy or own firearms.... [b]Unless they have a hunting permit in the U.S.![/b] So just have Henri go buy himself a hunting permit and then buy a shotgun for his shop. State law permitting, a rifle is quite easy to get legally, CCW or handguns in general for non-hunting purposes are next to impossible.

A legal resident alien in NY can obtain a NYS pistol permit and is permited to purchase long guns. Federal law requires that he/she be a resident in the state for 90 days and show proper documentation to establish that.
