However, as they mostly affected in their emotional sphere: having troubles “reading” emotions of other people, forming attachments, etc
I think common sense should tell us it is a bad idea.
Doctor, can you define common sense for is?

So yes or no and why?
This is when it should come under the discretion of the person who is selling or giving the gun to the other person. Just like a bartender has to use common sense when selling alcohol, or a teacher/parent is suspicious of a child not acting right and take the proper measures to make sure that child is ok, same can be done with the transfer of gun ownership. If you think someone is not quite right in the head, then it's best to not transfer the gun to that person.
