The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling.

With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white.

  1. What happens if someone doesn’t fit into any racial group. Obama is not black. He is a hybrid. He has both black and white dna in his background. Many people are at least part Indian which is a diverse problem because it is Mongolian. Yet not. The Mongolian side is prior to 10,000 years ago according to some scientists.
    A lot of people do not even know what they are. White carries a whole list of races in its background including negroid(Black).
    Only a DNA specialist would be able to determine it for sure. So there is not way to list it with a complete honesty.
