What would prohibit me from training with you

What would prohibit me from training with you?

Prohibited persons (persons not otherwise legally allowed to possess or own a firearm) are banned from taking any firearms training of any kind. 
What makes me a prohibited person?  A baseline is provided in the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 922, generally prohibiting the sale of firearms to any person who:
  • Has a felony conviction of any kind
  • Has been convicted of, or is under indictment for, a crime punishable by imprisonment for more than one year
  • Is a fugitive from justice
  • Is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, including marijuana (even though certain states have legalized the use of medical and recreational marijuana, it remains illegal under federal law. Therefore, A.T.F. considers people who use marijuana legally under state law unlawful users of a controlled substance)
  • Is underage (although persons under the age of 21 can, in some instances, be issued a CCW)  Call with questions on eligibility.
  • Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a mental institution
  • Is unlawfully in the United States or has been admitted to the U.S. under a nonimmigrant visa
  • Has been dishonorably discharged from the military
  • Has renounced their U.S. citizenship
  • Has been convicted of a misdemeanor offense of domestic violence 
  • Is subject to a court order restraining them from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner, his or her child, or a child of a partner. This includes, engaging in other conduct that would place an intimate partner in reasonable fear of bodily injury to them or their child. 
We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol and drug use around firearms. Anyone that presents themselves for any of the courses showing clear signs of intoxication or disorientation will be asked to leave.  The odor of alcohol or marijuana on a person is enough to deny firearms training.
