Question about purchasing an M16 in Arizona.?

My cousin has been wanting to buy an M16. He is 22 years old has no criminal background is he able to buy an M16? Are they even legal in Arizona? He lives here in Arizona but he is illegal; he was born in Mexico. Would this prevent him from buying a gun? Please no racial comments. Thanks in advance.

    The M16 is a fully automatic military rifle. You can buy them but they are VERY expensive (like $10,000 or more).

    The AR-15 is the civilian model. It's a clone of the M-16, but only fires one round at a time. They are legal and pretty cheap (less than $1000 for a basic model).

    State law prohibits the possession of firearms by certain categories of people

    one of which is ~

    Anyone who is an undocumented alien or a nonimmigrant alien, traveling with or without documentation for business or pleasure

    so that would be a no chance
