    Was wondering how many out there have a concealed carry permit? I don't, been thinking about getting one though. I have always believed that the 2nd amendment was my permit.

    I'm in Indiana so getting one wouldn't be a problem. I guess the main reason I haven't gotten one though is I don't want the state police to have my set of fingerprints. I also believe getting a permit would be like giving the government a road map to the people who possess guns.

    On the plus side I wouldn't have to wait to purchase any handgun if I had a permit.

    I live in Indiana and I have one. In Indiana you can get a life time permit and
    you only have to sign up once.

    Absolutely, and I carry. While you may think the Second Amendment is your CC permit, it will take you appearing in front of a judge to sort that one out. There is also the unnecessary night in jail and you will likely lose your firearm, hope you only carry a Hi-Point and not a Colt. In most states, you need a permit to have it in your car in reach of you, in other words, to have it where it will do some good. Without a permit you should just consider your trap gun your carry piece. The laws also seem to change during a hunting season too. A concealed carry permit allows you to carry about everywhere. We aware that many places do not allow you to carry. Never carry in a bank, the courthouse, most malls are off limits, and if going out with the boys for a few beers, leave it in the truck.

    As for fingerprints and being on the books, really, this is the government we are talking about. Besides, you posted on a public website, you're on teh books now!

    The state police don't get a set of your fingerprints. They go on a national registry that is available to every law enforcement agency in the country, state or federal.

    Have two, neither of which is good in my home state, the Republik of ILL. If you were in the service, ever had a background check for a bonded job, or worked civil service, you are "on the books". I'd rather be "on the books" and be able to carry in a few states legally than not be and be illegal. It just takes one felony arrest and you'll be forever "off the books" in terms of firearms ownership (with a few exceptions).
