FAQ

How do felons and criminal get guns?
Really good data on this is hard to find.  The best data I've seen would indicate:1.  They receive guns from friends or family.  Keep in mind that those "friends" may be fellow gang members, etc.  Sometimes these are sales, sometimes gifts. Often they are to pay back some debt. Relatively few of these transactions are likely to use legal means, as the parties already know that they are breaking the law.  This also includes "straw purchases" where someone buys a firearms for someone who is prohibited.2.  They are stolen.  Or, reported stolen when what really happened was the above.3.  The "grey" market.  One survey found that a surprisingly large number of criminals obtained their guns at swap meets.  4.  Corrupt gun dealers.  Some small number of gun dealers are corrupt and will illegally sell firearms to convicted criminals and other prohibited persons. Gun shows and face to face sales between strangers are fairly rare routes for guns end up in the hands of criminals.It's been well reported that the most recent fairly complete data for this goes back to 1994, and includes substantial time before current background check requirements were law.  Various misuses of some data caused congress, at the behest of gun owners, to restrict collection and distribution of some amount of this data, and no one has taken a serious effort to do a major study in it's absence.
How do I fill out a W4 form if am I a dependent of my father -who is a non US citizen living abroad, but pays for most of my living expenses?
You can be claimed as a dependent for tax purposes by a parent if:1. You are under age 19 at the end of the year, or under age 24 and a full-time student, or permanently and totally disabled, and2. You lived with that parent for at least half of the year (counting time spent temporarily absent from the home, i.e. at school), and3. You did not provide more than half of your own support.I bring that up just in case your mother - who you did not mention - meets all of those requirements. Note that the support requirement is only that you don't provide more than half of your own support - and not that the claiming parent does, so it's possible that you may still be your mother's dependent.Assuming that's not the case, then yor father, as a nonresident alien, would not generally be allowed to claim any exemption for dependents (assuming he has a US tax obligation). He might be able to do so if you qualify as his dependent otherwise and he is a resident of Canada or Mexico, but that's an unusual circumstance.On the W4 it doesn't really matter that much, claiming 1 instead of zero only means that the employer will withhold less in taxes, and many people report a different number than the allowance calculator (which the IRS doesn't see) computes. What does matter is that you know your dependency status for the year when it comes time to actually file your return. If you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return, you cannot claim your own exemption - even if that other person does not claim you.
How to decide my bank name city and state if filling out a form, if the bank is a national bank?
Somewhere on that form should be a blank for routing number and account number. Those are available from your check and/or your bank statements. If you can't find them, call the bank and ask or go by their office for help with the form.  As long as those numbers are entered correctly, any error you make in spelling, location or naming should not influence the eventual deposit into your proper account.
