Isn't that what a background check is for?
Well ya BUT if someone uses your name and info and get a CCW that way without the state checking on and making sure they say who they really are will you be happy. ID theft happens all the time, THIS is the wrong time for it to happen don't you think?Isn't that what a background check is for?
And I have seen some fools from NH that shouldn't even own a firearm let alone carry one concealed.... Not many just some.I would have to remove the bottom two lines. No prints and no mandatory classes in NH.
Those kind of people exist everywhere, not just in one particular state. As a former resident of the communistwealth of Massachusetts, there are many, many idiots in that state that legally own guns, but shouldn't. They have to pay fees, take classes, etc. and they still are foolish in their knowledge and handling of firearms.And I have seen some fools from NH that shouldn't even own a firearm let alone carry one concealed....

The Bill of Rights does not preclude the dumb from ownership. That is both good and bad.
I suggest you get your head out of your comic book and learn new stuff A felon WILL steal an ID to get legal documentation as will illegal immigrants. Drivers license's, Social security cards, and yes even a CCW will be a good source for LEGAL documentation.The states that require fingerprints do this for a reason, and the reason is NOT Identity theft. That is just the silliest thing I have ever heard. What felon would ever try to get a legal CCW????????? I was allways under the assumption that felons don't obey laws !
"my fingerprints are on file with the authorities" should not be a statement of pride, considering that the only other fingerprints "on file" with the authorities are the criminals.
Don't teachers have to be fingerprinted? I thought my mom did when she started...."my fingerprints are on file with the authorities" should not be a statement of pride, considering that the only other fingerprints "on file" with the authorities are the criminals.
You chose to take the job, you chose to get the CCW. How is that much different, exactly?You state you have been fingerprinted as part of your job, a voluntary thing for sure, you chose to take the job. A state requiring it for a CCW is a whole nother ballgame.
I guess that is what I don't understand. If I have never been finger printed, then they have nothing to compare the fingerprints to. How do they verify that it is me if there is no comparison?They (feds and local) want to make sure that you are who you are, with the nut jobs running around these days, do you blame them?
Been on that forum for a long time, great place too.If you enjoy a good errrrrrr discussion, yeah thats the word, go here and join and I promise you that there are guys there that will argue errrrrrr I mean discuss with you for days where the sun rises and sets or what is the first letter of the alphabet
I had to go to the police station with my license and proof of residency, other than driver's license. They took a copy of my license after inspection and took a photograph of me. Then I signed the application in front of them and they told me I would hear from them within 10 days. 4 days later, I received my unrestricted CCW permit. I do not know what they actually do, but I live in a town of almost 30,000 people, so they must do something for verification. Maybe between the license and the photo when I put in my application?In my case the FBI contacted friends and family and people in my past and verified who I was and if I was of good character.
They probably do not go that far for a CCW permit, but surely they have some method of positive ID?
Well here is the requirements that I know of for National IDI think I will keep my "head in a comic book" and also keep my fingerprints to myself. Personally I care more about ID theft concerning my credit card than a CCW.
shooter z, You state you have been fingerprinted as part of your job, a voluntary thing for sure, you chose to take the job. A state requiring it for a CCW is a whole nother ballgame.By every comment you make you must be for the national ID, right?
