View Full Version : 18 U.S.C. 922 (g)(5)(B)

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a supressor (I think the YHM Wraith), and I noticed a form in the packet I got from BATF regarding certifying my citizenship, to whit a "Certification of Compliance" with the above-mentioned statute. It requires the signature of a person certifying my citizenship.
Who can this be? Can my wife sign it? Does it have to be a LEO? Does it have to be notarized? :confused:
It's all very vague. It seems to me with all the other very serious protocols involved with a Class III purchase it has to be a pretty official signature, but it just doesn't say on the form.
Advice? Thanks in advance.

You sign it yourself.

Seriously? On the one hand, thand sounds in keeping with beaurocratic nonsense, but I'm having a hard time believing it's that simple. It might be amusing to have one of our local panhandlers sign it, I guess....:rolleyes:

Sorry, "...that sounds..." Geez I wish I could type.

Seriously, you do sign it yourself.

Wow. That's FUBAR. Forgive me if I'm still skeptical, all due respect to a Senior Member. I gotta figure you know wherereof you speak, but that just cracks me up. ;)

Well, roll me in powdered sugar and call me a jelly doughnut. Wish I could'a done my own fingerprints and notarized it myself too. ;)

It doesn't have to be notarized.
