If a buyer or transferee is unable to read and/or write but wants to purchase a firearm, how may the transfer legally be completed?

If the buyer or transferee is unable to read and/or write, the answers (other than the signature) may be written on the form by another person, excluding the seller. Two persons not directly involved in the firearms transaction (excluding, for example, the licensee and employees of the licensee) must sign as witnesses to the buyer’s answers and signature.
