Which would seem to be a very good reason to not report it since GC 411 places no particular restrictions on someone having received treatment. Especially if it’s not inpatient. Someone playing it safe may want to get AZ or Florida and carry under that until the 5 years is up.

If we can’t get unlicensed carry we should at least make the restrictions no different than required for possession federally. :banghead:

Unless I am mistaken, isn't it still the rule that you are ineligible if you have had two or more convictions for a drug or alcohol related offense in the prior ten year period?
Sounds like these weren't convictions, so the "legal" reason shouldn't come into play.
As for the "medical" reason, if the doctor says he is good, can't figure out what's going on.
God and the soldier we adore,
In times of danger, not before.
The danger gone, the trouble righted,
God's forgotten, the soldier slighted.
