LOL: CNN 'Investigation' Uncovers What We Already Knew: Criminals Break Gun Laws Dec 22, 2018 Beth Baumann
CNN decided to "investigate" the number of people who lie on the 4473 forms, which are used when someone purchases a firearm. It asks basic questions like your name, address, date of birth and if you've committed a number of criminal violations. When you fill it out you check a simple "yes" or "no" on each question. Lying on 4473 is a felony that can result in a hefty fine and up to 10 years in prison.
