I found myself in a variety store today that happens to sell firearms. While making another impulse rifle purchase I noticed a gentleman at the counter filling out the ATF 4473 form. The clerk was hovering over the buyer when he noticed that the buyer answered yes to question 11.C For a refresher that question is: (Have you ever been convicted in any court of a felony, or any other crime, for which the judge could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?) The clerk stated multiple times "You will have to change that to NO or they will probably deny your purchase." The buyer seamed confused at the request to change the answer to NO. After some prompting the prospective buyer finally said " Well I don't want to lie." Incredibly the buyer paid the $10 and proceeded with the background check. The buyer proceeds to do some more shopping as he is #48 in line. I finish my form 4473 and promptly become #49. I give the clerk my phone number and leave the store to run some errands and wait for their call telling me I'm approved. Surprise I'm approved. When I return a couple hours later the same clerk is there and he promptly gets me my rifle. I asked him if the other buyer was denied and he said that "He was." (I know it's none of my business) We chatted some and that is when I learned of which question the denied buyer answered YES to. We chat some more regarding the denied purchase and the clerk utters "I dont care." Here's what is bothering me, why on earth would the clerk keep prompting the guy to change his answer to NO? It didn't seem like he was trying to save him the $10 but more like he wanted him to be able to purchase the gun. I'm assuming if the guy answered NO the Feds would have denied him anyway. Should i bring this to the attention of the store manager? If any ffls on here could chime in on this I would sincerely appreciate it.
