6. And as I recall
there's no "to the best of my knowledge" escape clause at the bottom of the form. If you're wrong, it's a felony no matter what.

But what do we do with somebody who buys a gun for home defense and a year after purchase falls in love with and marries someone who uses the weapon to commit a felony? The problem with ideologies that fail to take into account the lives of real people is that they forget that populations of people mix. We are not disparate groups of law abiding and criminal elements. We are not the mentally well balanced living in nice neighborhoods and outpatients living on the streets.

Stereotyping and bigotry are not the exclusive provence of right wing authoritarians.
