    What will NY gun owners put in that box after April 15, if they have any magazines over 10 rounds? Or keep more than 7 rounds in a magazine that can hold 10 (cannot remember what the specific legal requirement is now)?

    I think the form 4473 is a violation of rights. The questions need to have YES, NO and 5A for answers (5A - 5th Amendment).

    Haynes v US was about a felon in possession of an unregistered NFA firearm.

    A 4473 is not registration and not in any way similiar to what Haynes v US is about.

    What difference does it make?

    The government doesn't have the time to prosecute everyone who lies on a gun form.

    You certainly have a right to plead the 5th on the 4473, just don't be surprised when the gun store doesn't sell you the gun. Just because you have the right to not incriminate yourself doesn't mean that the store or the feds cannot refuse to allow you to purchase a firearm unless you answer the question. You don't have to incriminate yourself but they don't have to just skip over the question either.

    We had a guy note that he was a fugitive on one of our forms. Yes, some people are stupid enough to answer in the affirmative.
