IMO no. voluntary is different than being committed. IMO, voluntarily going in to the hospital for depression isn't any different than going in for a gall bladder surgery.

committed would be you were declared mentally unstable for whatever reasons and sent there by a court order.

as suggested, check with an attorney to be 100% sure.

My sister is in the same boat.

I contacted a few lawyers that specialize in our gun laws. They told me that if she went in on her own, then no, it isn't an issue.

However, one did say that the chief of the issuing town could be a d*ck, and use his "discretionary authority" to deny it.

My advice, contact GOAL.org. Ask them. And ask what can you do if the chief decides to deny it.

IMO, i don't think it would ever show up if the person admited themselves. anymore than if you admited yourself for voluntary surgey.

i would contact a lawyer just to be sure.
