Disabilities act applied to gun licenses
From the New Jersey Star-Ledger: a shooter who is partially disabled by head injuries was denied an NJ gun permit on the grounds that his disabilities might make him a hazard to self or others (altho he was in good enough shape to be camping and fishing). But a court has overturned the permit denial, as violating the state's laws against discriminating against the disabled.
So a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, arguably a disability, can't be used to prevent you from buying/owning guns?
