You have to register to vote, which is basically like getting a permit.
Yep, but voting and self-defense are two different kinds of rights.

The 2nd Amendment protects a natural right, guaranteed to anyone on US soil, and codified in the Bill of Rights.

Voting is a civil right, which is generally restricted to citizens and can be regulated.
