Hispanic. Everyone else. Choose one box

An interesting new change by the Obama Justice Department to ATF Form 4473, which people must fill out whenever purchasing a firearm from a federal firearms dealer:

"Every person completing this form must now, under a new question “10.a,” either confirm or deny whether they are Hispanic/Latino. Failure to do so will cause potential criminal prosecution and a denial of Second Amendment Rights. The Form 4473 has been around since 1968, but never before has one ethnic group been singled out where individuals have to affirmatively state whether they ARE or ARE NOT a member."

We fail to understand the purpose of tracking the number of Hispanics (and only Hispanics) who are purchasing guns, unless Attorney General Eric "Neutral, leaning towards favorable" Holder somehow wishes to tweak the marketing of his Mexican gunrunning campaign for even more stellar results.

And Republicans are accused of being the party of divisiveness and racial profiling?
