Here's a new one to me:
The law requires that a person "(4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution; " cannot purchase a firearm.
Does anyone know the legal definition of a person that "has been committed to any mental institution"?
Specifically: has a person, who as a child, was taken to a hospital for evaluation because this person's legal guardian at the time says he/she is "crazy" or "suicidal" been "committed" in a legal sense? Is it the case even if no dissorder is diagnosed?
If such is the case, that would enable parents to permenatly prohibit their children from buying firearms forever. This seems unlikely but I'm no expert.
