    I got a feeling they go as far back as records are kept. A physical disability is probably not a disqualification based on American Disibilities Act. I would say teh only medical DQ would be mental issues.

    Again that is all assumption

    I'm not really convinced the KSP check medical records. That somehow doesn't seem legal. The disqualification for mental illness as I understand it would be for an adjudicated charge for mental illness-a charge that stems from being in the judicial system. And how would they check medical records? Do they take your doctor's address and phone number? WhenI sent my application in, I was never asked any medical questions or who my physician was.

    A physical disability is not grounds for rejection of an application for CCDW in KY.
    People who are legally blind have even been approved. This is KY everybody gets a gun. The KSP have no ability or authority to access your private medical records. That would take a court order.
    i have bought 3 guns in the last 2 month's,and then took them back,trying to
    find one that i liked, at no time did the background check take anymore then a couple of min. and was never denied, is there a differance between the buying
    process and the ccdw process?or is the whole process of buying and qualifing
    for ccdw wrapedup in one package,just a differant dept.?

    different checks, the one they do when u buy a gun is an instant check, the one they do for ccdw is a full nationalcriminal background check i believe

    good thing to note, I havent verified this, but at my CC class, the instructor said that from now on when you buy a handgun, you can present your CCDW and that stands in lieu of teh instant background check....

    I did this when I bought my Kimber last year, and the process is much quicker. They do note the CCDW license number on the form, of course.

    No problem. I'm 67 years old.

    Your CC license will work in place of a background check if issued after a certain date.

    My CC license was issued before this law and I must submit to checks when buying gunsuntil my next renewal in a couple of years. No problem.
