Hello, my name is Ely. Welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest
information and not necessarily to tell you what you wish to hear. Note: there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am very sorry for your situation. Can you please tell me if you have had a criminal
conviction or have ever been committed in a mental institution?
The reason I ask is because I am attempting to figure out if they have any cause to deny you a firearm to begin with. Federal law under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)
can have the following individuals denied:
(1) a person convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment exceeding one year;
(2) a person who is a fugitive from justice
(3) a person who is an unlawful user of or who is addicted to a controlled substance;
(4) a person who has been adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been admitted
to a mental institution;
(5) an alien who is unlawfully in the United States or who has been admitted to the
United States under a nonimmigrant visa;
(6) a person who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable
(7) a person who, having been a citizen of the United States, renounces his citizenship;
(8) a person subject to a court
order that was issued after a hearing in which the person
participated, which order restrains the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening
an intimate partner or partner’s child, and which order includes a finding that the
person is a credible threat to such partner or partner’s child, or by its terms prohibits
the use, attempted use or threatened use of such force against such partner or
(9) a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor
crime of domestic violence
Does any of this apply to you, or not?
