Sorry bro, but you're wrong. A PTSD diagnosis does not automatically or necessarily mean that a man is homicidal or suicidal. Far from it. In some cases, shooting and hunting can even be theraputic. Most hardcore combat vets suffer from some level of PTSD and yet have never lost their love of firearms and shooting.

The operative word in my post was "severe". I think that would also be the standard of the shrinks who make the decision that the individual should not, at this time, have access to firearms.

But what defines mental illness? Does it mean a real illness like Down Syndrome or Autism or any mental condition including conditions that don't make someone mentally incompetent like ADD or Aspergers?
