Article 1305

(5) No person shall be issued an identification card if he has been:
(a) acquitted of any criminal charge by reason of insanity;
(b) adjudicated mentally incompetent;
(c) treated in a hospital for mental illness, drug addiction or alcoholism;
(d) convicted of a crime of which actual or attempted personal injury or death is an element;
(e) convicted of a crime in connection with which firearms or dangerous devices were used or found in his possession; or
(f) convicted of a crime of which the use, possession or sale of narcotics or dangerous drugs is an element.

(6) No person shall be issued an identification card if he has a physical condition or impairment which makes him unable to use a firearm or dangerous device with proper control.

(7) Any person suffering from a physical or mental defect, condition, illness or impairment which would make him ineligible for an identification card pursuant to this Section may submit the certificate of a physician licensed to practice in the Republic to the issuing agency or officer. If the certificate states that it is the subscribing physician's best opinion that the defect, condition, illness or impairment does not make the applicant incapable of possessing and using a firearm or dangerous device without danger to the public safety, the identification card may be issued. But no such card shall be valid for a period longer than six (6) months.

(8) Any person who is ineligible for an identification card by reason of conviction of crime may be issued such a card if his most recent discharge from probation or parole or the termination of his most recent sentence, whichever is later, is more than ten (10) years prior to the time of application for the identification card and if the issuing agency finds that his record, taken as a whole, does not indicate that his possessing and using, or carrying, a firearm or dangerous device, as the case may be, are not likely to constitute a special danger to the public safety.

(11) A person who is neither a citizen nor resident of the Republic shall not be eligible for an identification card, except upon receiving special permission from the Attorney-General.
