    Good advice.

    What states don't care if you ever had a mental illness before issuing a concealed carry permit?

    Your best bet is HONESTY New York has some of the strictest requirements for issuing pistol permits.. Good Luck to you
    You really need to stop scaring people about NY. This is also completely incorrect.

I went to hand in my application on friday at the pistol permit dept, here in buffalo, ny. before the process was complete, i was handed a packet to review and sign about the following:
    have you ever had a mental evaluation? have you ever been treated for any mental illness? Have you ever been seen by a psychiatrist or psychologist? I answered no to all questions, signed and handed it in to complete my application process. After I got home..I got thinking about the questions that were asked. Back in 2003 I admitted myself to ecmc after a very bad break-up. Im not sure if i was evaluated...and was released 2 days later...being told that I did not need to be there. I also have been on anti-depressants since 2002 and was not aware that depression was a mental illness. My question here is....should I go back down to the pistol permit department and inform them that I had forgotten to list that incident? is it too late to do so? will that be held against me? Is that grounds enough to denied my application? I have been very careful filling out my application as far as disclosing any past criminal history, and to make sure my references have had no arrest history. I do not want them to think I am hiding anything..and am not %100 sure that this information will even come up. Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated,
    I won't advise you what to say or not say regarding the application. But ECMC records are protected from the government under HIPAA privacy rules unless the psychiatric admission was based on a court order or you were arrested on a 941 (mental health) charge. ECMC did not report you to big brother and the state dept. of mental health is not maintaining records of this incident.

    As Nogods advised, honesty works best. Having a bout of depression or taking antidepressents is not grounds for denial in itself. A very large percentage of the population has some sort of psychological health issue or takes an antidepressent.

    BC1,

    I'm not trying to scare anyone. But not disclosing information well lead to denial of your pistol permit. It seems lately Erie County had really cracked down on persons applying for pistol permits.

    And Paul I hope I'm wrong and this won't effect your permit maybe I should of worded my statement better. You should of dis closed all that information. I apolojize if I said the wrong things. Let us know what happens

  7. Thanks for the input

    thanks for all of your input guys..although I could of done without the crass comment about being senile from nogod. Thanks nogod, you just put a bad taste in my mouth about using this web-sight.

  8. Oh...and I did speak to a friend of a friend that works in the pistol permit department..she told me that it would be looked upon as a honest mistake. I am going back downtown tomorrow to disclose any and all information i am aware of regarding the mental health issue. She said I can simply add information and its no big deal..the bottom line being that I am taking steps to correct my application before its sent out for the background checks. Also a voluntary admittance to a hospital is very much different than a in-voluntary admittance. Thank you BC1 for your input i appreciate it..you made me feel a little better. We'll see what happens....

    I don't know about states back East, but around here, you have to be adjudicated as mentally defective. In other words, institutionalized against your will by a judge. Being depressed, taking meds, and even checking yourself into a facility are not grounds for denial. All these actions show you are capable of understanding and treating your mental health issues.

  10. Thank you for your input..very helpful.

    Nogods is like the Sam Alito of this forum, he is a perenial devil's advocate.
