Ask The Michigan Firearm Instructor: Is Dyslexia a Mental Illness That Can Disqualify A CPL?

Ask The Michigan Firearm Instructor: Is Dyslexia a Mental Illness?

Q: Rick, Will being diagnosed with dyslexia disqualify me for a CPL?

A. First and foremost, I am not a mental health professional who is the only person that can make a diagnosis of a mental illness. 

However, as I understand it, dyslexia is a developmental learning disorder and is not a "mental illness." Of course, I am not a doctor and neither are the members of the county gun boards. If you are denied for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) because you have been diagnosed with having dyslexia, I would strongly urge you to hire a lawyer and to consider appealing the denial.
