Okay, It's been a while I fill this one out.

I am a permanent Residence. 100% legal.:D

So, It say's

l. Are you a nonimmigrant alien? [ ]Yes [ ] No

12. If you are a nonimmigrant alien, do you fall within any of the exveptions set forth in the instruction? [ ] Yes [ ] No

Normal person would be "NO" on "l" correct? That question always confuse me.

Found my own answer. lol

Because you are an immigrant alien. If you're a permanent resident, you're an immigrant.

LOL. That can trip one up. Answer No then skip Question 12. Make sure you have your A Number handy.

Skip question 12.

Non-immigrant alien is somebody in the US temporarily on a visa (tourist, student, guest worker). A green card holder is a Permanent Resident Alien.

You will need your A#, it goes in question 15. Also, in addition to your green card and state ID (drivers license) you will need 90 days proof of residency. This can be the most recent 3 months bank statements, utility bills, rent or mortgage receipt, etc. It must have your name and your current address on it.

What Corey said.
A lot of FFLs seemingly dont know about the 90 day thing. And it is one of the biggest causes for revocation of license proceedings.

I know, that part always trips me up also because the correct answer is essentially a double-negative and doesn't make a lot of sense.

But it's a government form, so making sense is always optional. :)
