    I think this is exactly the reason they are adding it, so background checks against state databases will line up.

    Wonder if Trump has an opinion on this?

    I don't think it is an indecision about what sex you want to be on any given day, it is not wanting to be identified as one sex or the other. Still weird. And being a transsexual is not the same. Transsexuals would likely check either male or female just like most other folks.

    Those are the extreme cases of mental illness, they represent less than one percent of the mentally ill people in America.

    Do you guys care to venture how many people in America are on anti-depressant medications? 1 out of every 8 Americans. That's roughly forty-one million Americans with "mental illness". Yes, Depressive disorder is considered "mental illness".

    By advocating for people with gender dysphoria, or other harmless forms of mental illness, to be disarmed, you guys are playing a page right out of the leftist playbook.

    What would make you think that anyone with a psychological disorder would be barred from buying firearms?

    The entire point of the change is so that the form will match the state issued ID's that have these options.

    Do you want soldiers with PTSD disarmed? How about those suffering from depression, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, Tourettes, etc.?

    :agree::goodpost: Two decades behind the pharmacy counter, I'll vouch for those numbers. I'm honestly shocked the antis haven't rolled out a scheme to disarm ANYONE with ANY "mental illness" already.

    So if you're a man and you check woman or binary, and that's ok, can you be a felon and not check the box?

    Who decides what is right and what is wrong, what gets punished for lying about and what doesn't?

    I'm so confused...

    The 4473 we are discussing is a Proposed Form 4473; right?
    For what its worth, proposed Section A is not part of the currently in use Form 4473 that a Transferee has to fill out.
    For the Transferee, The current Form 4473 'starts' with the information contained in the proposed section B and ends with the proposed.section B.
    All but proposed section D is solely for Transferor/Seller.
    For what its worth; not much.
    But if you are arguing with your juvenile nephew you will be (i hope) correct.
    Its the Fineprint After the Form that is the interesting part to me...

    what no peace sign smiley ?

    I'm still amused by the boxes that ask if you do drugs and/or if you are an illegal alien. Who checks those?
