    Got one in the mail today for something called the American Community Survey. It looks like a 'I'm from the government and want to help' type of survey. :ninja: Also says 'required by law'. :eek:

    What does the tiny faint grey "fine print" say?

    I checked and it is indeed administered by the US Census Bureau, and federal law requires that targeted households respond.

    Does it include "Do you or a family member own firearms?"

    Have not seen the actual survey yet, it is only available online now, print will be mailed. It says we are required to respond, but does not indicate that we have to be truthful. ;)

    Or in my case: "Is there anyone in your family, extended family, including household pets, who does not own a firearm ?" :)

    And that is exactly what I intend to do; it will be accurate as I can. Only God will know if it is truthful.

    2/22 - SCOTUS conference on NJ carry case. The first response by the court on the topic since 2013.
