Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unless the person has been committed to a mental health facility for involuntary mental health treatment, the law would not prevent him from having a firearm permit or from owning or possessing a firearm. The law prevents those who have felony convictions, domestic violence convictions or involuntary mental health commitments or someone who has been legally deemed by a court to be incompetent.
PTSD is not something that all alone would prevent someone from owning, possessing or carrying a firearm.
