    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...
