If you were diagnosed with PTSD (I wasn't) can you legally own firearms?

It depends on how it was written in one's medical records.

Generally speaking, a diagnosis of PTSD alone, even with prescribed treatment is not sufficient to deny one their RKBA.

However, if one has been judged a danger to themselves or others, and that takes much more than just one doctor writing that in the record, then no guns for them.
