ATF F 5310.12 (Form 7) *Try #2*

Apparently the image did not come through last time, so the post made no sense.

Had someone notified me of that prior to closing I would have been glad to have edited it...

The form reads in section 23/C...

Quote:
Are you in possession of a valid hunting license or permit lawfully issued in the United States?

1. If you answered "NO," you likely cannot lawfully possess a firearm and therefore cannot be a Federal firearms licensee.

2. If you answered "YES," complete the following information, and attach a copy of the license or permit to the application.
So again I ask, Is there anywhere in the US this is actually true?
Being a Texas resident this just seems absurd...

Did you go to the BATF's website and look for the form referenced?

Here is a link to the instructions.....
http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/at...12-notice.html

And to the form itself......
http://www.atf.gov/files/forms/downl...-f-5310-12.pdf

Yes it's true, but it falls into this subsection of the form.
Quote:
18 U.S.C. 922(g)(5)(B) generally makes it unlawful for any nonimmigrant alien to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or
affecting commerce, any firearms or ammunition; or to receive any firearms or ammunition which have been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign
commerce. All nonimmigrant aliens listed in item 22 must complete the following information certifying compliance with 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(5)(B)
So if you extract it the way you did for us, it looks misleading.

Right but it only applies to nonimmigrant aliens who apply for an FFL.

Ahhh... I missed that part because I skipped over it due to it not applying...

I thought it sounded silly...

The OP's question has been answered, so we're going to close this one.
