Those questions are somewhat irrelevant. I submit all 4473's electronically and 10a/10b aren't even on the electronic form. The purpose is to help process your background check over the phone. If there is another person with the same name as you, the more info you provide the quicker it is to get a "Proceed" and not a "Delay" or "Denied". People always ask me if they should include their SSN. I tell them if you want a "Proceed" you should use it.

That would make (some) sense. But why is the ATF nodding at the Office of Budget and Management? What does the OMB have to do with the firearms sales and the background checks?

OMB sets requirements of many types for all federal agencies. Why on a 4473, I dont know but im guessing its simply a data collection requirement that had a good reason to start with but these types of forms were unintentionally included.

The 4473 never used to be transmitted to the ATF when buying a gun. It was simply a way for the dealer to decide if a person meets legal requirements. Now, with the stuff being shipped to the federal mafia-er-government, they use some of the info to gather statistics, and also to more accurately identify gun purchasers in order to make it easier to do the planned confiscation.
Clearly the 4473, and the BGC are much more than simple infringements of the 2nd amendment, but the whole Constitution is under attack.
