    Depends upon the specific State law. In Utah if no other legal disqualifiers and 18 years or older, then yep!

    In Missouri you are required to be a resident. It violates the constitution, however it has not been fixed.

    Someone with a green card is a resident.

    Can you elaborate on the terms used in the law?

    You still can carry on an out of state license as the requirements to carry under that section are a lot less stringent than the requirements to get a license. If you wanted a MO license, you would be able to get one if you filed in federal district court. The alien issue has been beaten into the ground. It's even going on right now in Mass (Fletcher v Haas). The case law is setttled, aliens are subject to strict scrutiny.

    In the meantime, if you want to be able to carry immediately, I recommend getting a license from Maine or Florida.
