A friend of mine called me this morning and told me he is thinking about buying a 1911 .45. He had a question. He was treated at the VA for PTSD and for depression after returning from Afghanistan. I told him a read that you cannot purchase a firearm for reasons like this. Anyway, I looked it up and what I found was that you would only be not allowed to purchase a firearm if you were found mentally incompetent or was commited to a mental institution. He was neither. I found that on several Websites but not on any ms.gov sites. Whats the rule on this?
