    Is this davi under another name? Kind of weird to get same question on same day. If so, You asked this question earlier today. Maybe you suffer from short term memory too. We all said talk to a lawyer. If not, sorry, please contact a lawyer.

    As said, consult an attorney. A FFL holder cannot do a "dry run" for you.

    Based on what you posted, no.

    Delusions might not be violent now, but that can change in the future. Also, if you've ever been diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic or with bi-polar disorder it will disqualify you from owning firearms in almost every instance.

    Talk to a qualified attorney as well as a mental health professional.

    A very responsible thing to do, would be to talk to a lawyer, AND a mental health professional, discuss your issues, and the meds you're taking.

    Look man. Not to be mean or insulting, but ALL of the most recent mass shooting attacks have been commited by people with mental health problems, notably, ADHD and depression, either receiving treatment, or having recently received treatment.

    Are you going to be the next Lanza? I highly doubt it. There are tons of people who own guns and are being treated for mental and emotional health issues, and have never had a problem. You would likely fall into this category, simply because the odds are in your favor.

    But please be responsible, and make sure you're good to go, with a lawyer and some further evaluation.
