never had any negative encounter with any LEO.
I called SBCSD Employee Services Division this morning...
...found out that I am not eligible to apply for LTC since
I am not a US citizen. I was really taken aback and am
feeling really bad. For I didn't know that being a US citizen
is one of the requirement. I have never read anything
pertaining to being a US citizen as a requirement.
I respect their decision and I understand that I do not have
as much right as a US citizen. But I was hoping that being a
legal immigrant with a permanent resident card is enough.
It's one of those things that you have already set your mind
for, only to find out that it can't be done.
ACLU filed suit in Kentucy a few years ago

and KY got smacked down by a federal judge.

ACLU recently filed a similar suit in SD and won, though I cant find any documents for that case (http://madvilletimes.com/2011/02/jud...atory-gun-law/)

ETAL here's the docket: http://ia700408.us.archive.org/34/it...87.docket.html


AFAIK, those were filed and handled by local ACLU chapters, so might not be able to get them to handle this case, but I'd still guess that this would be a slamdunk case, potentially slamdunk enough to be solvable without going to court...
