Oh, so does that mean if a person has no drug use history all those questions get skipped as well?



I have ZERO history of prescription drug use - only ever taken Tylenol 3's like 20 years ago when I had my wisdom teeth pulled - for 1 day - but this must have raised a red flag because they went over... and over.. and over this section. I just kept saying, no, no, no, never, not, nada, zip, zilch. So... no, I don't think a negative answer to a question means they will skip over the section! (I told him I felt like I needed to start making shit up just to get him off my back about it! Yes! Okay! I took Valium once! And.. Prozac, too! There - are you happy???)

Holy Bejebus!

See, for me that would be easy to answer.
"No. I don't have any firearms training so..."

It'll be a struggle for me not to get visibly annoyed with all those unlawful sexual activity questions. Simply going through the "Are you pregnant?" No. "Are you sure?" Yes. "How sure are you?" Very. "How do you know you're not pregnant?" BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THROUGH IMMACULATE CONCEPTION IF I AM!! "So you're saying there still may be a chance that you're pregnant?" :banghead: Some X-ray technicians I tell you... :cuss:

They're not unlawful.

Just admit you have an industrial size jar of peanut butter and your dog loves it and you'll be fine.

When we got to that question on the polypragh I laughed my ass off and then asked the examiner if people really do that?
