    Do we really want "resident legal aliens" running around with guns?

    I'm in the NRA and about as pro-gun ownership as anybody, but that just seems nuts to me. What could a resident legal alien possibly need with a 9 mm handgun?

    Honestly?

    I don't think anyone wants to belive that a nut like this had friends, family or loved ones...then he would be "like us".

    Just the first thing that popped into my head when I read your post. Love to hear other answers!

    Thanks. I read another article stating he was a permanent legal resident of the U.S.

    I'd have to agree TD, people just don't want to think that this could be anyone. If they were "loners", then it sounds like people couldn't have helped him, if that makes sense. Has this guy been described as a loner? I haven't heard that.

    What is the difference? He is a legal resident of the US. We have members of our military that are from other countries...should they not be allowed to carry guns either? I'm just asking...

    Not making a statement one way or another about gun control but if you want a gun bad enough, you can get it no matter what your residency status is.

    I think that's a privilege that should be reserved for U.S. citizens.

    "Legal residents" aren't allowed to serve in our armed forces, you've got to be a U.S. citizen.

    For U.S. citizens, wherever their origin, of course, they should have the same gun ownership rights as anyone else, IMO.

    If you're not a U.S. citizen, however, I don't think you should be possessing a gun within this country.

    In one of the news conferences they labeled him a "loner" and that they were having a difficult time finding out things about him because of that.

    It could also be no one wants to admit they are friends with him!

    True, anyone can buy a gun on the streets...sadly it will probably be sold by a teenager.

    That's certainly true, but I think allowing ANYONE to legally purchase a firearm within our borders without possessing U.S. citizenship is horrible policy.

    Actually, they are. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to serve in the military.

    What sort of classification do you need?

    I'm trying to find something definitive but I'm having no luck. I'm thinking you just need to be a legal immigrant, like this guy was.

    But stopping non-citizens from purchasing firearms isn't going to stop something like this. This isn't an Asian problem or a immigration problem. It could have been any disgruntled person who was born and raised here just like the Columbine massacre.

    You must have entered the United States on a permanent residence visa or have an Alien Registration Card. You also have to have a permanent residence in the United States.

    Can't reenlist either unless you become a US citizen during your first term.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
