-Affirms that the officer is in good standing

-Acknowledges that the firearm being purchased is an assault weapon.  For example, it cannot just say generically “a firearm”.  It does not need to list the exact weapon manufacturer name or model, but it does need to include the words “assault weapon”.

-Affirms that the officer has not been convicted of or have any pending charges for domestic violence.

-Acknowledges that the weapon will be used in ‘capacity as an officer” or “duty use”.
