Makes sense to me! When they catch onne with a Gun??? Not only is he illegal,but now subject to gun laws...In their case a bus ride TO SOUTH OF THE BORDER!....
BUT ITS Meaningless.....As with Drivers Licenses...False SS numbers,Phoney names,Food Stamps,Unemployment checks,...they like all potential THUGS can get a gun in a Sec.....Next time a Mexican holds you up...ask him for his Gun Permit...WHAT BS!!

Good for the court. This is good - when the shooting starts, Mexicans can bring their knives to the gunfight.

In a similar case:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit, based in Missouri, rejected an appeal brought by Joaquin Bravo Flores, who was charged with possessing a firearm. Agreeing with the 5th Circuit, the court concluded that the protections of the Second Amendment do not extend to undocumented immigrants.(12/16/2011)

Remember to vote against every politician the supports ILLEGAL resdents ove LEGAL residents.

non-citizens have no ammendment rights of any number. that's why the illegal lovers cries of 4th ammendment rights in search cannot allow any guv entity to ask them about citizenship. these chumps have no right inside our borders and only have constitutional rights in their country of citizenship.

GOOD! Another large leap towards a secure nation....
A major trip up for the illegal alien and groups that support them such as LA_RAZA......
I am glad that the AP used the term "illegal immigrant" instead of undocumented immigrant too....

Terrific! Just what we need-- undocumented
immigrants with guns-- one more thing to add to
all the insanity that exists today. Did the
lower court find it OK for them to carry?
I don't believe it. This must have been the judge's
joke of the day.

Putting guns in the hands of illegl aliens would make them armed and dangerous criminals under our laws. That would make it easier for citizens to shoot them legally.

Some of us can still shoot them though, when they attack us or steal from us.

What third world shithole law school did this attorney attend? quote"
Huitron-Guizar's attorney, Ronald Pretty of Cheyenne, Wyo., says he plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Hey mr Pretty....this may help you when it comes to understanding the bill of rights...."We the people of the United States," Thats right it is the PREAMBLE to the constitution....notice Mr Pretty is says We the people of the United States. It DOESN'T SAY WE THE PEOPLE "IN" THE UNITED STATES. Your client is in the United States but he certainly is not "OF" the United States therefore the second amendment DOES NOT APPLY TO HIM....

Right on! Illegals have "limited rights" as explained on the news tonight. Attorneys and our friends called the ACLU clearly think illegals have all rights afforded Americans. I hope this ruling is the beginning of good things to come to us and our country!

It seems like a lot of these people don't understand the word, "Illegal Alien"!! Maybe this guy and Geraldo went to the same Law School!

Of course illegals should not be allowed to own guns. But I am more concerned about the toothless, redneck meth-heads and KKK sympathizers who believe the only way to solve a problem is to shoot it.

Guns should be available only to those who can pass stringent background and psychological testing. Also, anyone caught with a firearm in a criminal act and convicted, should face the most severe penalties.

And ways need to be found to stop abuse of the stand-your-ground law, which is a legal way to get away with murder.
