Can Veterans with PTSD own guns?

The question, “Can Veterans with PTSD own guns?” has arisen after a Vietnam veteran named Charles Bradly in Oklahoma allegedly killed his wife. The 75-year-old man has also said to be suffering from PTSD. After calling 911, the veteran stated that he is confident that his wife was shot after he found her on the floor laying in her blood. When the Tulsa Police Department arrived, they saw the husband crying and trying to start CPR.

A published article in Law and Crime states that the veteran was taken into custody after being read his Miranda Rights. He then shared with the officers different series of stories about what happened. He told them that he was having dreams of an attack and that he woke up due to the sound of his wife’s alarm. He got up then he saw her on the floor unresponsive and covered in blood. Charles Bradly was then charged with first-degree murder and pleaded not guilty and was released after posting $70,000 of his $1 million bond.

A woman named Nydia Lopez-Garcia was killed by her ex-husband whom she separated from only a year ago after 14 years of being married. The 37-year-old Texas woman who is also a mother of three kids was killed through a cut on her neck done by Fernando Gomez, her ex-husband. Such tragic incident took place in the MGM Hotel on Las Vegas Strip. Fortunately, the three children stayed in a different hotel room and did not witness the incident. The suspect was deemed guilty as he had nothing to hide according to the police. Candace Garza, Nydia’s sister, is now taking care of the three children although it is said that it would be hard for her to keep custody of the three since Gomez still has parental rights.
