When you submit your prints to obtain your CCW (if printing is required) are the prints entered into the FBI database or just compared to make sure you have no criminal record?
If you were in the military your fingerprints are on file with the FBI. Again, I would bet everytime the FBI gets a print without a match it is kept on file for future reference. That is just logical.
Don't you watch CSI(s)?? How could they possibly solve those crimes week after week if there wasn't such a database. :biggrin:
If the prints don't match any in the criminal database (booking fingerprints as well as unknown prints found at crime scenes), then the FBI informs the requesting agency that there is no criminal record.
One doesn't necessarily. Most of the apps I've seen from different states say "supplying SS# is optional"....granted I havent seen ALL the states apps...:no:
On the SC application, there is a space for your Social Security number. However you do not, and should not fill it in. Under the concealed carry permit law the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is authorized to collect certain information. Your Social Security Number is not on the list of information that SLED is authorized to collect. This means that they do not need, should not get, and are not authorized to have your Social Security Number.
I went and read the FBI web site. They compare the card to the criminal database. You are not entered into it. They tell the requestor that there is either a record or no record. The FBI then files the card at their fingerprint center in WV.
If I had Googled before I posted I would have known this. sorry
