    it's all on the ATF form 4473. if you answer yes to any question other than #1, then you will probably be denied to accept possesion of a firearm.

    hopefully someone else can explain it better than i can or correct me if i am mistaken on this.

    Good. The the trick question that can get people in trouble is #10. That's about all I would add.

    Sorry it's number 11.
    Basically If you have ever been in court for a felony you must answer a yes. I'm trying to find a copy online.

    OK. Glad to help.
    As I was saying about the felony question. The way it is written tricks some people.

    Everything seemed okay to me, but than again I've never even had a misdemeanor.

    Then you should have nothing to worry about.

    Only thing is I get SSI, but I'm not my own payee. I've received it since I was a child and never took my grandmom off as the payee and even though she wants me to be my own payee, I have to go through all this bs with social security to get it in my name, I have to have a psychiatrist sign a paper. I don't know if any of that would show up, but that was my main concern.

    As long as you haven't been hospitalized/institutionalized you should be fine.

    cool thanks. Hmm hospitalized, does that count if I was sent somewhere as a minor by my grandmother? No court was involved.

    Idk. That's a tough one. Being a minor may make all the difference. I would say you would have to answer yes and then explain you were a minor etc. You might want to pay for your records and see If it comes up and then either ask a lawyer or the atf.

    For question 11 f I have a question about because I was recently diagnosed with ocd depression and anxiety and am actually being medically retired from the marine corps because of it. Does this make me unfit to purchase a gun? I haven't been committed to an institution or deemed a danger to anyone or myself.
