I see a lot of writing about illegal aliens (undocumented persons). There is no issue here for that. These persons are not able to pass a background check. I doubt if they want to go to the sherriff and request a carry permit for fear of arrest.

The question is should someone here legally be able to apply for and receive a permit? Perhaps with stronger proof that they understand the laws here, have character references, can pass some sort of background check, and are going to be in the country an extended period, then yes. If a person is becoming a citizen or going to be working here for years, why not?
