Default Can I buy a gun while on disability for mental health issues?

And I've been baker acted in the past.

I only have misdemeanor convictions.

If I try to buy a gun and they deny me, can I get in trouble?

Why the hell would I get in trouble if I don't know if I can buy a gun?

I like you stalker, but I don't trust you with a gun.

I ****ing hope not. A gun is the last thing a nutter like you needs. You can't handle your alcohol at all and do stupid shit when you drink...so yeah, getting a gun sounds like a great idea for a derelict like you.

Also, if you want to protect your kids...give them over to child services.

You dont get in trouble if you get turned down.

Plus I believe Florida allows you to get a gun without a background check in a personal sale. Like a gun show or something on armslist. Cant say for sure. Varies by state.

Ive had to look into such things lately since this woman im involved with got into guns and decided she needed one of every kind...

You don't need a gun man. The likelihood of a situation arising where you actually use said gun to protect your children is off the charts unlikely. The dangers far outweigh the risk. One of the things I like best about you is how well you understand yourself. One of your weaknesses I believe is that you seem to think accountability is enough. Not taking jobs because you have a temper and problem with authority is an example. It's great that you recognize these flaws in yourself but you can't let lack of self control be an excuse. Most of us have likely entertained the fantasy of punching some shit head at work at some point in our lives, you just have to control yourself and be a civil person. Part of being an adult is going to be making a choice to rise above your darknesses.

Long story short, you know you're a volatile dude, you've very recently made another bad decision. You need to do whatever it takes (I won't presume to know what would work for you personally, be it therapy, meditation, sobriety, whatever it might be) to get yourself well in check before even CONSIDERING getting a firearm to keep in your house with your kids. Come on man.

You're a really good hearted dude and I always appreciate your candor on here. I hope you stay out of trouble and raise a happy family.

There's always petty crime right? You can probably fetch a cheap pistol for a 100, which is well within his welfare cheque.

Basically what you're saying is, it's only illegal to possess a gun if you're a felon, but in certain circumstances you have to take other routes to purchase one?

What a weird law.

That was actually a very kind post.

I'm not kidding, it warmed my heart.

People like you give me a ray of hope for humanity.

You avoided his major point which is that accountability isn't enough, how about some action mother fucker! Get a god damn ****ing job


Basically, Lamar and I said the same thing. Only he spent 3 paragraphs sugar-coating it to you.

You don't have the balls to ever kill another human, so I don't even have a problem with your dumbass owning a gun. You probably wouldn't even know how to load it anyways.
