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 ????
