7th Circuit Court: Illegal Aliens Have 2nd A Rights Too

In a case regarding a specific gun control law which bans “unauthorized aliens” (illegal immigrants) from possessing firearms in the United States, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit did the work of a contortionist by upholding the law while also pointing out that they “see no principled way to carve out the Second Amendment and say that the unauthorized (or maybe all noncitizens) are excluded.”


While RI isn't part of the 7th Circuit, RI does have a conflict law on the books http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/Stat ... 1-47-7.HTM

§ 11-47-7 Possession of firearm by alien. – (a) No unnaturalized foreign born person who entered the United States in violation of the laws of the United States or, having legally entered the United States in a lawful manner, but now remains in the United States in violation of the laws of the United States, shall purchase, own, carry, transport, or have in his or her possession or under his or her control any firearm.


The million dollar question: Will the RI ACLU s go after this or not?
