At what point does the ATF consider an AR-15 lower receiver a long gun when filling out the form 4473?
The law and ATF are quite clear on how a fire arm type is to be recorded on the form 4473.Section B line 16, handgun, long gun, other.Section D question 27 type of fire arm.Question 16. Type of Firearm(s):Quoting from the instructions for Form 4473"Other" refers to frames, receivers and other firearms that are neither handguns nor long guns (rifles or shotguns), such as firearms having a pistol grip that expel a shotgun shell, or National Firearms Act (NFA) firearms, including silencers. If a frame or receiver can only be made into a long gun (rifle or shotgun), it is still a frame or receiver not a handgun or long gun. However, frames and receivers are still "firearms" by definition, and subject to the same GCA limitations as any other firearms. See Section 921(a)(3)(B). Section 922(b)(1) makes it unlawful for a licensee to sell any firearm other than a shotgun or rifle to any person under the age of 21. Since a frame or receiver for a firearm, to include one that can only be made into a long gun, is a "firearm other than a shotgun or rifle," it cannot be transferred to anyone under the age of 21, nor can these firearms be transferred to anyone who is not a resident of the State where the transfer is to take place. Also, note that multiple sales forms are not required for frames or receivers of any firearms, or pistol grip shotguns, since they are not "pistols or revolvers" under Section 923(g)(3)(A)(Question 27) Question 24-28. Firearm(s) Description:These blocks must be completed with the firearm(s) information. Firearms manufactured after 1968 by Federal firearms licensees should all be marked with a serial number. Should you acquire a firearm that is legally not marked with a serial number (i.e. pre-1968); you may answer question 26 with "NSN" (No Serial Number), "N/A" or "None." If more than four firearms are involved in a transaction, the information required by Section D, questions 24-28, must be provided for the additional firearms on a separate sheet of paper, which must be attached to this ATF Form 4473.Types of firearms include, but are not limited to: pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun, receiver, frame and other firearms that are neither handguns nor long guns (rifles or shotguns), such as firearms having a pistol grip that expel a shotgun shell (pistol grip firearm) or NFA firearms (machinegun, silencer, short-barreled shotgun, short-barreled rifle, destructive device or "any other weapon").End quote.To enter false information on the form 4473 would be committing a Federal felony. Therefore a stripped receiver must be marked as a receiver. If it is a stripped receiver regardless of manufactures markings, it must be recorded as a “receiver” on the form 4473.To answer the question posted. The ATF would consider an AR 15 receiver a long gun when the receiver is assembled as a long gun when it is transferred. Again a receiver only, is to be recorded as a receiver.
Knowing it is illegal for convicted felons to own firearms, is it illegal for them to even make the attempt to make a purchase legally by filling out the Form 4473?
Yes, there is a questions on the form regarding whether the buyer Nd intended user/owner of the firearm is a prohibited person. Actually several questions as there are several ways you can become prohibited.But, if you are thick enough to not realize that your felony conviction that all that court appearance broo-haha was about made you a prohibited person, the question that says something like “have you been convicted of a felony that had a penalty that included one years imprisonment or more?” may not be enough to make you stop and think about what you are doing.
Is there any form filled out at the time Canadian gun owners purchased their guns (comparable to the US form 4473), or is it just a matter of presenting their P.A.L.?
Just show your valid PAL, and show the vendor no evidence of drunkenness, drug use, or violent intentions.EDIT: This simple transaction only applies to Non-Prohibited and Non-Restricted firearms, like deer rifles and most shotguns.
Do military members have to pay any fee for leave or fiancee forms?
NOOOOOOO. You are talking to a military romance scammer. I received an email from the US Army that directly answers your question that is pasted below please keep reading.I believe you are the victim of a military Romance Scam whereas the person you are talking to is a foreign national posing as an American Soldier claiming to be stationed overseas on a peacekeeping mission. That's the key to the scam they always claim to be on a peacekeeping mission.Part of their scam is saying that they have no access to their money that their mission is highly dangerous.If your boyfriend girlfriend/future husband/wife is asking you to do the following or has exhibited this behavior, it is a most likely a scam:Moves to private messaging site immediately after meeting you on Facebook or SnapChat or Instagram or some dating or social media site. Often times they delete the site you met them on right after they asked you to move to a more private messaging siteProfesses love to you very quickly & seems to quote poems and song lyrics along with using their own sort of broken language, as they profess their love and devotion quickly. They also showed concern for your health and love for your family.Promises marriage as soon as he/she gets to state for leave that they asked you to pay for.They Requests money (wire transfers) and Amazon, iTune ,Verizon, etc gift cards, for medicine, religious practices, and leaves to come home, internet access, complete job assignments, help sick friend, get him out of trouble, or anything that sounds fishy.The military does provide all the soldier needs including food medical Care and transportation for leave. Trust me, I lived it, you are probably being scammed. I am just trying to show you examples that you are most likely being connned.Below is an email response I received after I sent an inquiry to the US government when I discovered I was scammed.

And how to learn more about Romance Scams.Right now you can also copy the picture he gave you and do a google image search and you will hopefully see the pictures of the real person he is impersonating. this doesn't always work and take some digging. if you find the real person you can direct message them and alert them that their image is being used for scamming.Good Luck to you and I'm sorry this may be happening to you. please continue reading the government response I received below it's very informative.

How are prohibitions against those in recovery for alcoholism legally acceptable reasons to deny a firearms purchase permit?
On ATF form 4473, which all purchasers from a dealer must fill out , question 11.e specifically asks if the purchaser is an unlawful user of or addicted to , among other things “… A depressant…”.Alcohol is a depressant and an alcoholic who is not in recovery is clearly not capable of truthfully answering “NO” to the question. Because of this, a currently drinking alcoholic is prohibited from buying a firearm from a dealer by Federal Law.Based on Sec 922 g 3, an alcoholic is probably prohibited from a non dealer purchase as well, because alcohol is sometimes considered a “"controlled substance”. Check with your lawyer on that one.
If the Vice President of a company buys a firearm for himself under their name and fills out the ATF (4473) form themselves and has one of their area managers/supervisors go over the form, is it illegal?
Let's make sure that I'm not an expert on this, but I think it is according to the ATF website (Page on atf.gov) Question 3.
How would someone own a gun?
Here in Maryland, USA, I have five ways to do so:1) Handgun Purchase from a Dealer:Spend 3–4 months, several hundred dollars, get training, fingerprinted and apply for a Handgun Qualification License (HQL). This is your permission slip to buy a handgun.Once you have an HQL, go to the gun store and identify the gun you wish to purchase.Go online and fill out a 77R application to purchase, waive your HIPAA and privacy rights, pay $10 via debit/credit card and wait 8 days for your application to be “Not Disapproved”.On or after the 8th day, go back to the shop, bringing a state-approved borelock for the caliber of gun you’re taking possession of (otherwise you need to buy one at $25 each) and take possession of your purchase.Place your handgun in a locked case, in the trunk or away from the driver. Go straight home with your new handgun. No stops along the way as that would violate “peaceable journey” laws.Wait 30 days until you can buy another handgun and repeat steps 2–5 above. If you are a designated collector the 30 day wait does not apply to you and you can acquire as many handguns you wish in a single purchase and application.2) Handgun Purchase from a Private Party:Same process as a purchase from a dealer per above with the exception you make the 77R application directly to the Maryland State Police and you, the buyer, have to wait for their “Not Disapproved” decision before the seller can transfer the gun to you. Both seller and buyer must supply information to process the transfer.No face-to-face private sales of handguns are permitted in Maryland without the 77R approval process.3) Long Gun (Rifle, Shotgun) from a Dealer:Go to the gun store and identify the rifle(s) and/or shotgun(s) you wish to purchase. Pay for your purchase.Fill out a Form 4473.Wait for the background check to clear.Place your newly purchased firearms in locked cases in your trunk or away from the driver. Take your purchases home at your convenience.4) Long Gun (Rifle, Shotgun) from a Private Party:Identify rifle(s) and/or shotgun(s) for sale from a private party. Arrange to meet.Show your state ID to demonstrate you are a resident of the state of Maryland.Pay the seller the amount as arranged.Place your newly purchased firearms in locked cases in your trunk or away from the driver. Take your purchases home at your convenience.5) Purchase Eligible C&R Firearm Interstate via an FFL03:If you hold a Federal Firearms License 03, you can purchase any Curio & Relic firearm across state lines through the mail. This applies to rifles and handguns (interstate only, C&R license not valid within the state for handguns).Identify the C&R eligible firearms you wish to purchase.Pay for your purchases.E-mail, fax or mail a signed copy of your current FFL03 license to the seller.Wait for the seller to send your firearms via common carrier to your doorstep.Upon receipt, record the information on each firearm in your bound book.There you go. That’s how someone would own a gun in my neck of the woods.
