I am not an expert on guns or the law. But if you read my posts you probably know I am a strong advocate about mental health issues. And here's my
thoughts, from that perspective,
With Schizophrenia the problem is that you lack perspective to know if you are symptom free or not. You have to rely upon externals ( other people )
to make that assessment for you. Your treatment likely has removed all of the noticeable or recorded symptoms or delusions. But you do still possess
the capacity for symptom recurrence. And it may come in the form that you are not acclimated to recognizing as a symptom at all.
Your writing style makes me think you have some hostility issues. Maybe it's just because you're angry at this situation... maybe it's that text is
not the best indicator of personality and is easily misinterpreted regarding tone and inflection. If you do happen to have a predisposition towards
aggression, however, you might want to consider that as you think this through.
I do understand that you feel slighted, singled out, and offended by this. And I do sympathize. But as a person who has mental health issues himself,
I ask you this in earnest... Try to see it from outside of yourself and wonder, if you were one of your neighbors, or friends, or doctors, or
relatives... what would they say? How would they
react to this question?
In that, I think you will find, at least, the best answer for your personal thoughts. Again, the legal aspects aside.
