I am sorry but only a US citizen or permanent resident is allowed to purchase a firearm in the US, see

You can legally purchase a stun gun, see

or pepper spray, see

I am sorry this is not the answer you had probably hoped for, but it would endanger you, and be unprofessional of me, not to provide accurate information.

I hope this information is helpful.
