Post: Relief From Firearms Prohibition In California
Posted by R.P. on 4/03/09
I was admitted to a mental health facility under WIC 5150 in
2006. I was held at the facility for 12 hours and released.
As a result, I was prohibited from own firearms for 5 years
under WIC 8103(f)(1). I am requesting a hearing for relief.
The people have to show by the preponderance of the evidence
that I would not use guns in a safe manner. I believe that
they would have a difficult time proving that I would be
unsafe based on the fact that I was not held for the full 72
hours under WIC5150 and that I have had no further issues.
Is that a correct assumption? Does the firearms prohibition
by the state trigger anything at the federal level? Thanks!
