The Federal Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Federal Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act of 1997 makes it illegal for an individual fits any of the following conditions to possess a firearm.
These conditions prevent State issuance of a conceal carry or pistol permit as it would be illegal by federal law.
- Those who are fugitives from justice
- Anyone who is an unlawful user of or is addicted to narcotics or any other type of controlled substances
- Persons found to be mentally defective or who have been committed to a mental institution
- Persons who have been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one (1) year
- Persons who are under indictment for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one (1) year
- Military veterans discharged under dishonorable conditions
- Persons who have renounced U.S. citizenship
- Aliens illegally in the U.S.
- Persons subject to a court order that restrains them from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of such intimate partner
- And persons convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence
Anyone not falling into any of these categories can possess or own a gun in areas where other law does NOT preclude them from doing so.
