    ive been debateing to get my ccw, the two things that is makeing me have a 2nd thought about it is. 1 haveing my fingerprints took and put into a national database, dont whant the gov haveing that type of information on hand for them. if my local sherifs dep can do a backgrond check and issue me 5 purchase permits a year, why should i half to send out more info just to verifi who i am, and prove further more i have never ever been in trouble.

    2nd reason, my sherifs dep is a bunch of total A@@ hats, the local sherif has been geting into legal trouble with his job and i do not trust him or his deputies with anny more information than i half too.

    i found out that i can go to va and get a non resdense licens and do it there. they still reqire fingerprints but someone told me they distory them after 90 days. i also can go throug the state of maine and get a non res- licens with no fingerprinting as long as i can prove my identy with my ss, adress where i curntly reside, and other doc.

    what is you guys thoughts ????

    Just because you're parenoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you ;-) Nothing to hide here but I really don't trust many people or gov't agencies. I feel the same way. Going to do it anyway though :(

    If you don't want to be checked out by whatever agencies for your CHL, don't apply - there's no way around it. As for your Sherriff, just wait until he vacates the position.

    Y'all do realize CSI (and every other cop show/movie) is no where near reality of fingerprinting technology. I know of several cases locally (robberies, breaking and entering, assaults) where the cops don't even dust for prints. I don't understand why you care so much about the state having a copy of your prints. I don't really see where they can use it against you. What are you worried about? I'll admit, I don't like that I had to submit my prints (twice actually) but it was the old fashioned ink and paper and I don't see how they will ever be used to identify me.

    I wonder how long it would really take to run fingerprints through a national database, assuming there is such a thing?

    You're pretty paranoid.

    I have my CHP. I carry. People ask me why I'm so paranoid that I carry a gun every day. I tell them "I carry, I have NOTHING to be paranoid about."

    You should just get it, it'll change your life.

    Had my finger prints taken over 20 years ago for work.
    I have never done anything wrong so my fingerprints being on things is not a problem.
    I don't trust anyone who is afraid of having their fingerprints on file. :???:
    Stand up, be an honest citizen and just do it.

    I can understand some of your worry. Get over it and apply for the permit, printing is just part of the process we all went thru.

    I understand your concern. When I first heard about it I thought it was stupid that one would have to do it. Granted I think it's stupid to be required to get a permit in the first place. Does it really make a difference they have your fingerprints? Probably not. I don't like the idea they have mine either but I'm more likely to need to use a gun in SD than the gov somehow use that against me. Do what you want thought I personally don't think you are paranoid.

    Do you really think we don't already have your fingerprints, DNA profile, sperm count, and retinal patterns?

    :twisted:

    If you have nothing to hide get the prints...Don't commit a crime afterwards, and you'll be okay. I live in Va, and the county I live in doesn't require finger prints...Yet they still have mine, due to the job I had while in the military...I'm not scared, and neither should you be...

    My prints were already in the system multiple times so this wasn't an issue for me. I had to be fingerprinted to receive my teaching certificate and then again when I started working as a police dispatcher. No reason not to go ahead and submit them a 3rd time to get my CHL.

    Shootinnc, I understand your concern fellow Tarheel but I did it when I obtained my CHP two and one half years ago. I looked at it like this, It is much cheaper to pay for a concealed handgun class and pay the processing fees for the application to the local Sheriff's office than to be charged with having a concealed handgun in my vehicle without a license and have to get a lawyer and all of the other bunch of BS pertaining to the legal system. Now I can carry my weapon on me concealed and in my automobile concealed and if I have to use it that will not be an issue in court because if you have to use your firearm in self defense and you do not have to proper licensing that will be the issue not that you were in fear for your life I can promise you.

    If you go for a Utah permit (which a LOT of people have) you have to submit your fingerprints. Haven't heard too many people having an issue with that.
