I don't understand why legal residents aliens aren't afforded the same right as citizens to protect themselves and their families.
Are the rights guaranteed us by the Constitution of the United States of America applicable to non-citizens as well as citizens?

As much as I hate to admit it, I really don’t know for sure. Off the cuff, I’d say no. Legal resident aliens may be able to live, work, and play in this country, but they still are not citizens. Do they have all of the same rights as those of us that are natural born, or have applied for and received full legal citizenship?

If so, why? What good would become of gaining citizenship if you already have all the rights of the Constitution?

Should legal residents aliens even be allowed to own firearms if the Constitution does not apply to them? I say no. Get your citizenship!

Someone educate me please.
