O.K. it was "ONLY" my thumb prints. I bought my wife a Sig 239 in .40s&w this morning.

Got me to wondering why don't people joining churches, reporters, and just anyone speaking their minds get finger printed also?

I dont get it you had to leave a thumb print to buy a pistol?

Why don't you buy a gun from the DCM/CMP. You must submit a 10 finger print sheet

When I registered my MAK-90, which the state of CA knew I had anyway, I had to get a full set of fingerprints. I go into the police station and ask where they take fingerprints. The woman behind the counter looks at me and say

"SEX OFFENDER?"

No ma'am. Even worse. Gun owner.

She looked shocked at me.

It's a TN thing - part of the instant check system IIRC.

That's nothing! U.S. Immigration made me send a set of prints to the RCMP and FBI for background checks and all I wanted was a Green Card.

TN requires fingerprinting to buy a pistol?

To cash a check a few months back I have to give a finger print. In a bank. They had little ink pots at each teller window. It is closer than you think.

If I had the time I would have. I was already 30 minutes late and I needed the cash. I asked and they said anyone cashing any check at that bank got printed. At the time I only had a credit union account with one branch that was already closed for the day. It won't happen again.

The CMP does a NICS check now and thats it. There are no fingerprint requirements unless it's a CA DOJ requirement.

Do they keep any personal information?

I fully support MY bank collecting fingerprints from non-customers that are receiving cash.

If they don't like it, they can go to their own bank.

So far I have been fingerprinted for the Coast Guard (under DOT and DHS), FBI background checks, FL Department of Insurance (insurance licenses), FL Department of Agriculture (CWL), FDLE, the local Sheriff's Department, the program I am going through college right now for, and about five times whenever my security clearance would change back and forth from Secret to TS and I had to keep getting interim ones.

ETA: I forgot a couple of times when I was bonded by different employers.

I don't even care anymore, everybody has them. Plus I leave them all over town on a day to day basis
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 4:49:20 PM EDT
Got fingerprinted to get my green card.

Then again to work at the community college, just to check that I wasn't a child molester. Never mind that I was still a minor the time.

Every transfer requires you to submit two completed forms (duplicate), each form with its own complete set of prints on FBI cards and a pass-port photo on each form. Not sure of the source of the requirement.

You think thats bad, I have to use my social security number for identification at banks and such, even though it specifically states on the card that it can not be used as a means of identification.

Logic and laws seem to have parted ways a long time ago...

Hell I've been cuffed and stuffed 4 or 5 times, once after telling a cop to FOAD after I volunteered to take a breathalyzer and he said he wasn't worried about that, he wanted me to do a field sobriety test. Thrown against the trunk and cuffed, and thrown in the car. Fully fingerprinted, after arrests 3 times. Never once convicted of anything. Always found not guilty or the charges were dropped. I guess I look suspicious. Funny thing is, all this was before I got piercings or tattoos. Anyway, when they tried to get me for DWI and resisting, the cop left his voice recorder on so all that got dropped and he get suspended for making a false statement, I shoulda sued but I'm not like that.

Every time I've ever been caught, I honestly hadn't been doing anything, or it was just being detained till a story was straightened out. BUT my prints are in the system now. So I don't do the check-print thing.

That is what's messed up, I hadn't done ANYTHING each of the times I'd been arrested, or I had but it was self defense and he cuffed me and stuffed me for his "and my ()" protection until he got it sorted out.

Correct. SC does. It's an absolute pain in the neck to find someone that will do it. I tried the city police, the county, the city jail, and a county jail in another county. I ended-up having to drive about 200 miles roundtrip to the state police headquarters to get it done.z

And they would have pointed at the door and told you never to darken their door again. Their bank, their money, their rules.

kinda sucks to 2 transfers so 4 sets of prints! since the forms must be completed in duplicate.

Perp would probably do just what I do in those cases. Slide the thumb instead of roll. Print is smudged, and they dont get jack shit from it. Thats the problem with feel good measures, they dont work when you need them most.
