I been putting off getting my ccw out of fear of denial despite countless people telling me that they don't think I would be denied. Here's the deal, Michigan's cpl application says that you cannot have a mental illness at the time the application is made regardless of whether you are receiving treatment for that illness or not. Michigan does not define mental illness or put labels on what you can or can't have in order to get a cpl, it only defines a mental illness as such "a substantial disorder of thought or mood that significantly impairs judgment, behavior, capacity to recognize reality, or ability to cope with the ordinary demands of life, and includes, but is not limited to, clinical depression." Ok, I have a couple of anxiety disorders(ocd and social fear) which are minor, but I do receive disability for them, now one could argue that this impairment could fit in with the portion of the definition that says "or ability to cope with the ordinary demands of life" -because i'm not working, yet on the other hand I am pretty much normal, I have a driver's license, I am sane, I buy guns all the time and pass the NICS check a couple of times a year, and I even have sole custody of one of my children and joint of the other. My buddy says he called the police dept and told them about my situation and that they said to check "no" on the mental illness question because they are only looking to deny the people that are psychotic killers, but have a letter ready to explain my disorders. They said that it's all interpretation and that I am not lying if I say no, that if something comes up it's that I misunderstood what they meant(because I kind of am misunderstanding the definition) and that I won't get into trouble if something comes up because misunderstanding questions happens all the time. I am just not sure about it all or to trust the police that they know what they are talking about. I am pretty sure if I checked no that it would go through since I have no mental health records in the court system and my background is clean hence why I buy guns all the time, but I am also terrified of a perjury change if they think I was lying. What would you all do if you were me?
