18 years ago I admitted myself to a mental facility (because of depression of not coping with my fathers death) I go to buy a gun and now I'm being charged with a felony because the commonwealths attorney says that the records show that I was involuntary committed (which I still dispute) but have no real way of proving other than my stay was only 14 days and no one signed me out, if I never thought I was lying is there still guilt and can I use that as a defense?

You have raised an interesting issue in your question which is one
that should be addressed by the competent criminal defense counsel
whom hopefully is by now representing you in what is definitionally a serious
matter by virtue of its classification as a felony.
