Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill prohibits those diagnosed with mental disabilities, within 10 years preceding their applications, from obtaining weapons carry licenses.  An exception is made if the individual submits a sworn statement from a psychologist or psychiatrist that the applicant is mentally competent.  This also applies to the transfer or sale of a firearm.
