I went back and read the previous thread and I have to say that my first conversation would be with my psychiatrist. It is important to know what your psych would say about you were he asked by LEOs. He also may have suggestions on whether you should own a firearm and the best way to go about it. Having a letter from him clearing you would make an attorney's job easier.

As far as talking to an attorney, you don't need a list of questions. Tell him you'd like to own a firearm, tell him about your mental history and ask his advice. He is paid by you and works for you so just let him do his job. There's nothing tricky about this conversation. :-)

Your other option is to go to an FFL and attempt to make the purchase. You will likely be delayed and within a week you will know if you are denied.

Sorry you didn't like the answers that were given to you, but, not to be a dick, if you are suffering from delusions, nonviolent or otherwise, you cannot and should not own a gun. Period.

Once your delusions are "cured", if that's even possible, then you can think about ownership.

Anything that alters your perception of reality, whether it's delusions, drug addiction, alcoholism, makes you a liability.

Sstroy- we do not know you, and we cannot make an informed judgement of whether you are in a condition to safely and responsibly possess a firearm. THAT would go back to your health care provider. Legal questions- go to your attorney.

I will say this- some years ago, I was badly hurt. Combination of the meds I was on- I was NOT safe with anything more deadly than a tongue depressor. Did that condition change? Yes- I healed up, and was no longer on large doses of pain meds. Did I have hallucinations and delusions? Hell, I would have copyrighted them if I could have- they were doozies!

Conditions change, and circumstances change. We are not able to judge yours.

Then a great first stop would be further evaluation by a mental health professional. Judges aren't psychologists, and many of them actually realize it.

This is why my advice was to check with your current psychiatrist. He knows your condition best and would be the best to judge your current condition. Besides, a judge will most likely want your medical records or want you to be evaluated by a doctor, so it would be good to find out what they will tell the judge.

C3 is right - we cannot make any sort of informed judgement on your condition, only guide you to the people that can. You will have to go through several steps and several professionals to make sure you are safe to own a firearm. There are no shortcuts on something this serious and far-reaching.

I would not ask can you buy a gun, but more importantly should you buy one? Our history has many recent examples of people who have successfully obtained firearms, only to use them for evil purposes. There is no way that a bunch of us on the internet can answer this question for you and unless you are completely open and honest with your doctor, they may not be able to accurately answer your questions either.

You absolutely must go to see your psychiatrist and pose these questions to them. Do't try to dodge around hoping they will give you the "OK", because they won't. Not unless you ask them outright and in full context what their opinion is on you owning a gun. If they say you are cured and they will sign you off, then go for it.
