Not that I'd have a chance

But they have another intrusive personal question on "THE questionnaire".

Tucked in at the end of the questionnaire and listed under “Miscellaneous,” it reads: “Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.”

Well, yes as a matter of fact. I don't want to scare you, but we have three modern arms and two black powder pistols.
Me and the wife own them and Texas has no intrusive registration requirements.
They are used (mostly) for target shooting and will be put to use for home defense.
We have had property damage do to an unintentional discharge from the .22 rifle that I was fixing the safety on.

See it was catching and not allowing full motion to fire, so I freed up the bent part and dry fired about four times before the round worked it's way through the magazine tube and into the chamber.
The inside wall has a quarter inch hole about two inches from the floor.

I have also killed cats, squirrels and rabbits with it. (Sorry to make you all queasy kneed)

Any more prying personal revelations you want to hold over my head?
