Ethnicity question on forms

So I'm filling out the paper work for a gun purchase. And, by the way, it occurs to me that I have no idea what it's like in other states. I've only purchased guns in Illinois. (yea, I know, don't get me started.) Anyway the ethnicity question has changed. Now there are two. The fist one is wether or not you are Hispanic/Latino or not. Those are the only choices. Then the second one gives you all the other options. You have to answer both. What's up with that?Live well and be safe

There was quite a bit of discussion about this new question in this thread:

The ATF Form 4473 is federal and is the same in every state. It recently changed in this regard. I don't know if there is another form required in IL.

Please refer to the cited thread and ask and answered questions there to avoid duplication plus more thread drift.
