Nothing for anyone to fret about. Just more trees gave their lives in vain for the old ones that had to be thrown out.
10a and 10b have to both be utilized from my understanding. How many Hispanics do you know that will check Hispanic in 10a and then white, black, Asian, etc in 10b? I do agree with the trees though! Had to throw out a bunch of old ones. Here is the guidance from the ATF:
Q8. I Answered Item 10.a on the ATF Form 4473. Do I have to answer 10.b. as well?
A8. Yes. You must select at least one race in item 10.b. regardless of ethnicity designation selected in item 10.a. Both items must be answered. Ethnicity and race are further defined below:
Ethnicity – This refers to a person’s heritage. Persons of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race, are considered Hispanic or Latino. Any other ethnicity that does not fall within those indicated, please select the closest representation.
Race – More than one response may be selected.
American Indian or Alaska Native - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America), and who maintains a tribal affiliation or community attachment.
Asian - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Black or African American - A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.
White - A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
