Seabright: Green Card Holders Have Second Amendment Rights in Hawaii
By Andrew Walden @ 3:54 PM :: 5523 Views :: Second Amendment

by Andrew Walden

Federal Judge Michael Seabright is ordering the State of Hawaii to grant Second Amendment rights to resident aliens.

Seabright's September 17, 2014 order, in the case of Steve Fotoudis vs City and County of Honolulu, enjoins against Hawaii's current ban on resident aliens owning firearms.

The victorious plaintiff Fotoudis, a competitive target shooter from Australia who is a US resident alien living in Honolulu, was represented by local attorneys Richard Holcomb and Alan Beck.

Seabright's ruling applies only to US resident aliens with a green card not people in the US on a worker's permit or student visa.
