Hello, I'm considering obtaining my firearms purchaser ID and after doing some research this question seems to be brought up regularly I see. Not looking for legal advice per se, just looking for those who have similar life experiences and how you handled these questions.
In short back In 2012 I was going through divorce, just lost my mother to cancer. Wasn't handling this well at the time. I voluntarily signed myself Into a mental hospital realizing that wasn't what I needed and signed myself out two days later. I wasn't treated, prescribed any medication and went on with my life.
It's clear to me I must answer "yes" to question 26. However in "my" interpretation to question 24 would be "no" as I wasn't committed or confined as I left on my own free will. Question 24 seems to be regarding involuntary hospitalizations but I'm not lawyer.
If answering yes to 26 will this be an automatic denial? I see it's reccomended to have a letter from a dr when submitting the application, however I have zero recollection of the facility I was at 11 years ago. Would an evaluation be needed or advised prior to submitting as I don't recall the facility or wait and see what Gloucester township police department says?
Thoughts or opinions?
