    I'm currently looking over the application for a concealed carry permit, and I was looking for some clarification on the one of the criteria for qualification.

    It says

    "005.01E Not currently be adjudged mentally incompetent or have been
    found to be mentally ill and dangerous in the past ten (10)
    years. Emergency protective custody (EPC) does not
    disqualify an applicant unless it is followed by formal
    proceedings or treatment. (There are no time restrictions on
    the disqualification for this item under federal law 18 U.S.C.
    922);"

    For more clarification on Federal Law 18 U.S.C. 922 I found

    "(4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;"

    Would this only apply if it was the result of state enforcement or state declaration?

    (eg. The state forces me to go to a Mental Hospital. Or the State Board of Health brands me batsh!t.

    Because its my understanding my private medical history is... well private.

    And it would seem to me to be foolish to be barred from carrying a concealed weapon, when the only criteria you violate is a mental health disorder that you were born with and has subsequently been treated.

    Adjudicate- "To hear and settle (a case) by judicial procedure." - The American Heritage Dictionary.

    I'm no expert but it seems to methat the government would have had to have declared you to be among the cashews and almonds, based upon what you cited.

    Although, were you ever "Committed to a mental institution?" I would think the government would have to be involved somewhere in that process, but maybe I am wrong.
