L1b and h1b are non-immigrant visas. I had h1b many years ago before I got green card. People on non-immigrant visas are aliens (legal) but they are not resident aliens till they got their green cards.

Resident aliens can own firearms, but aliens can't. Even you have become resident aliens (green card), you will need to provide your alien number (A number) when you fill out the federal form.

I am afraid you probably can't legally own a firearm just yet. You want to be patient and very careful. If you make a mistake it could be gravely detrimental to your immigration process down the road.

Sorry to bring you the bad news. On behalf of those who have reached the shore a few steps before you, welcome brother. Courage!
