Concealed Carry Restrictions for Non-Citizens are Unconstitutional

A recent District Court ruling in North Carolina held that Concealed Weapon Carry restrictions of noncitizens is unconstitutional.

Via Eugene Volokh

"A federal district court in North Carolina held Friday that North Carolina may not discriminate against permanent resident noncitizens in issuing licenses to carry concealed guns. (Messmer v. Harrison.) "

People illegally here are still banned from possessing guns:

"Note that none of this affects bans on gun possession by illegal aliens; such bans have been uniformly upheld. It also doesn’t affect bans on gun carrying or gun possession by noncitizens who are legally here but aren’t permanent residents — a category that includes not just tourists but also people who have lived here for many years, for instance on work visas that let them work in a particular job."
