Can you still obtain a class III weapons permit if you have had a history of or are on an anti-depressant?

Thanks in advance.

It's not a permit, it's a tax.

If you can fill out a form 4473 and buy a title 1 firearm, there are no additional restrictions on purchasing title 2 ("class 3") firearms.

There is the small matter of obtaining a CLEO signoff on your form 4, but that's up to the whim of the CLEO. There's no national law stating they have to sign.

I wouldn't count on a CLEO signing off on your Form 4 with a history of depression. It doesn't mean it won't happen, just makes your chances slimmer.

The CLEO doesn't need to be informed of being treated for depression. The only function of the CLEO signature is to ensure owning a NFA firearm is not illegal in his jurisdiction and he has no evidence of criminal behavior on your part. Where I live, it is a minor formality. You drop the Form 4(s) off at the Sheriff's office and pay a "processing fee". They will then get the Sheriff to sign them and mail them to you. Generally only takes a couple of days to have them back.

Even LEOs get treated for depression. It is not an automatic reason to be denied possessing any firearm.
