Google is no help.
it's all on the ATF form 4473. if you answer yes to any question other than #1, then you will probably be denied to accept possesion of a firearm.
hopefully someone else can explain it better than i can or correct me if i am mistaken on this.
Did you Google fa-10 form? Check the atf?
Good. The the trick question that can get people in trouble is #10. That's about all I would add.
whats question 10?
Sorry it's number 11.
Basically If you have ever been in court for a felony you must answer a yes. I'm trying to find a copy online.
Found it thanks, I didn't know the name of the form.
OK. Glad to help.
As I was saying about the felony question. The way it is written tricks some people.
Everything seemed okay to me, but than again I've never even had a misdemeanor.
Then you should have nothing to worry about.
Only thing is I get SSI, but I'm not my own payee. I've received it since I was a child and never took my grandmom off as the payee and even though she wants me to be my own payee, I have to go through all this bs with social security to get it in my name, I have to have a psychiatrist sign a paper. I don't know if any of that would show up, but that was my main concern.
As long as you haven't been hospitalized/institutionalized you should be fine.
cool thanks. Hmm hospitalized, does that count if I was sent somewhere as a minor by my grandmother? No court was involved.
Idk. That's a tough one. Being a minor may make all the difference. I would say you would have to answer yes and then explain you were a minor etc. You might want to pay for your records and see If it comes up and then either ask a lawyer or the atf.
Here's the link to Part 1 of the 4473 Form on the ATF site:
For question 11 f I have a question about because I was recently diagnosed with ocd depression and anxiety and am actually being medically retired from the marine corps because of it. Does this make me unfit to purchase a gun? I haven't been committed to an institution or deemed a danger to anyone or myself.
I would say no. I believe you must be hospitalized. Not that I'm a lawyer.
I have ptsd and a class a ltc.
Do u recommend me telling them about my conditions or not mentioning it at all since it shouldn't matter since ive never been hospitalized
personally i wouldn't mention it if you were never commited to a hospital.
Cool thanks guys for the help I appreciate it
