    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...

    ....and then adds your prints to the database so they will have a big brother record on you.

    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.

    It is my understanding that prints are forwarded electronically to the FBI for your background check, also a check against NCIC (NATIONAL CRIME INFORAMTION CENTER) is performed. Also a check of Counties/States you lived in for local wants and warrants.
    A full data base has been assembled over the years to accommodate all that are surrendered. My latest prints was done on a scanner. The Tech. at the detention Center(Charleston County only prints at the jail) ask if I wanted them emailed to the investigating authority or just wanted them printed. The Email is scrambled and secure. Only LEO offices with the network can receive.
    Hate to break it you but you now have a file IF you didn't have one before. I was active duty (1), work armored car carrying FED deposit money (2) and filed for a CWP (3) over the years.

    Big Brothers been here for a while...........Just can't correlate date worth a *****

    Supplying your SSN is optional for the Utah CFP. During the instructor's class, the question was raised as to if there was a benefit of supplying your SSN. The BCI personnel teaching the class informed us that it is optional, and won't delay your CFP if you don't supply it, however it may expedite your CFP processing if you have a common name.

    Fortunately there is only one G50AE.

  8. In WA, they scan on an electronic finger printing machine and it's submitted digitally. (ha ha...)
    I would guess the FBI would keep it on file.

    P.S. Using a Freedom of Information Act request, you can actually request to see what the FBI has on file about yourself, if anything.

    If I had Googled before I posted I would have known this. sorry

    I wouldn't bet all my amo on it but I've heard that the fingerprints are to distingush you from anyone else that has the same name in the FBI data base.

    The old saying goes: If you ask if you have a file from any government agency, one will be started on you today.
