I'm not real sure, but I think anyone with a Mental Disability is not allowed to have a "permit to carry", but they are still allowed to own a gun in their home for protection.

Without firearms, there is no sort of "balance" between civies and government.

Or between the weak and the strong. Victim and predator.

If I were physically small or weak, let alone disabled, I certainly wouldn't be a supporter of gun control. The gun is, and always has been, the great equalizer.

Your Answer. A individual with a mental Disability may not own a firearm. Section C. of the Gun Control Act.

The basic objectives of Title I of the Gun Control Act of 1968 were to ban mail-order sales of firearms and ammunition, confine the purchase of firearms to the buyer's state of residence, and prohibit certain classes of persons from purchasing, receiving or transporting firearms or ammunition in interstate commerce. Specifically, Title I prohibits dealers from selling any firearm or ammunition to any person who is:

a. convicted of or under indictment for a felony
b.a fugitive
c.adjudicated as a mental defective or who has been committed to any mental institution.
d.addicted to or an unlawful user of marihuana or a stimulant, depressant, or narcotic drug.
e.less than eighteen years of age for the purchase of a shotgun or rifle
f.less than twenty-one years of age for the purchase of a firearm that is other than a shotgun or rifle
g.a non resident of the State in whichthe licensee's place of business is located
h.an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States
i.dishonorably discharged from the armed forces
j.subject to a court order that restrains such person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner
k.convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence

Across the U.S., there are over 20,000 gun laws on the books. That is definitive proof that persons will ill intent will not obey the law. Law abiding citizens don't break laws, criminals do. Making more antip-gun laws or supporting them is proof of being delusional. Fact is, if a man is breaking into my house, his intent is clearly to harm me or my loved ones. My intent is clearly going to prevent that from happening. To clarify, 3 taps, dead criminals can't hurt others, and they can't lie in court. Simple math, which one are you?
