She agreed to be transported to a medical facility, but not to be detained after it was determined that her behavior was due to the unexpected reaction to the new medication.
Ok, Florida follows federal law with regard to sales of guns to individuals. Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(d), it is unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution.” .So if there have been no formal legal proceedings to find the person mentally ill and they have not been involuntarily committed to the hospital, then I would opine that the statute does not apply and there would not be a restriction on them purchasing a firearm..
After communicating with another expert here at JA, I wanted to clarify that if the person had been involuntarily committed for any length of time, then under the federal law, they would then be prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm.

I cannot enter into an attorney client relationship, this is a public forum, and all posts are available for public viewing.There is no duty of confidentiality that attaches to any posts. The information provided is not a substitute for a local attorney’s legal advice.
No rationale was provided for the change, or "clarification" provided to your previous response, nor was the clarification of your response sufficiently definitive to enable me proper understanding of its ramifications wrt my original question. At this point it would require too many questions to provide a full understanding of all ramifications associated with the original response and subsequent clarification.
I will not be drawn into such a discourse as it would prove much too costly. Moreover, given the qualifications provided when my question was originally solicited and the parameters for the associated response, which requested a response of "medium" detail, I was disappointed by the brevity of both the initial response and subsequent clarification. Indeed, they merely provided information I could easily access from a myriad of sources.
The responses provided would hardly require a Barrister's education or experience. This lies at the heart of my disappointment and resultant rating. I was led to believe that resources provided me by JA would be much more informative than what I was able to identify with a very cursory investigation of the subject matter...
As an aside, I just noticed I was provided qualifications and pictorial identification data that does not appear to match the present Barrister, It may be the practice of JA to provide a generic ID in the initial introduction. If so, this should be explained so as to preclude such misunderstandings...
