86. Indeed, not only citizens exist.
Permanent residents of the US can buy and own guns. They have to jump through a few extra hoops (they have to prove that they are resident of a particular state for three months, whereas for US citizens this is assumed).

Even non-permanent residents of the US can buy guns, but the hoops get a little tighter (it depends on which visa class you are on, in some cases having a legal hunting license is required).

If you don't believe me, go to the ATF and department of state websites.

Let's not turn this into a citizen-versus-not debate, nor in one about skin color, racial origin, or such. There is enough discrimination and violence against monitorities in the world already (and in there I include recent immigrants). Let's not use this opportunity to beat up koreans, students, males, or some combination of these characteristics.
