For most of my adult life I have been a rural Alaskan. As such, my ADL always showed my PO Box as my address. Since many villages do not have any form of actual physical street address, none of the Govt ID I had showed a physical address.
However, that never was a reason for an FFL to deny me a firearm. The last few times I filled out the 4473 form, I used a physical address for my place of residence in Nome. (Nome does have street addresses since they have property tax.) However, never was I asked to show a govt ID that showed that street address.
Many rural Alaskans have nothing more than a state ID. No voter card, no vehicle registration, no ADL, nothing that would show a physical address, since in many villages no such address exists. ( i used to make up addresses to get UPS/Fedex packages when I lived in Unalakleet).
Today I was denied transfer of a firearm because my new ADL showed my PO Box in Fbks and I had no govt ID to show the physical address I had to put on the 4473 form. It was suggested I use my voter card, but my new card has not arrived yet. It was also suggested I use a vehicle registration, but that also shows my PO Box in Fbks.
So my question is..................how does someone from rural Ak. who has no physical address and no govt proof of such, purchase a firearm from a FFL?
