Just a general question on block 10 of the 4473
 
http://www.atf.gov/files/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf

Understanding that the 4473 stays with the person doing the transfer until the business closes, what use is block 10a and 10b?

Is this a way for the BATF to enact a form of discrimination?
http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/

I wonder what being a Hispanic or non-Hispanic has to do with purchasing a firearm. Also, why should race and other info be included. What is required is the identification of the transferee.

How does the information provided on Hispanic or non-Hispanic, or race help determine if one is prohibited under law from receiving a firearm?

So on 10b, I can check all the boxes I want, but on 10a I have to make a firm decision. Booo! BOOOO! Somedays I might want to be Hispanic and some days I might not. UNFAIR I say!
;)



Yep, the man is probably wanting to keep a really quiet head count in some sneaky way.

Absolutely no reason for it that I can fathom.

BTW, Hispanic is a term coined by the Census Dept a few years back.

So check whichever one you wanna be on the day you purchase the gun.

Doing that is falsifying a document. Realllllly good way to end up a felon. If you think the holders of the obama world government won't use it against you if they get a chance... I got a real nice bridge for sale.

So the paperwork reduction act is not valid?
