    FL concealed app: ssn required?

    The app says SSN# is optional. Ok, got that. What about the fingerprint card? Instructions are not so clear on that one.

    "SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER Section 119.071(5)(a) 2, Florida Statutes, authorizes the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Licensing
    to obtain social security numbers from applicants. Applicant social security numbers are maintained and used by the Division of Licensing for identification purposes,
    to prevent misidentification, and to facilitate the approval process by the Division."

    Thoughts from current FL holders?

    Local LEA made me put it on there. Oh well. I'm still leaving it off the main app, as they say its optional on the app itself.

    I'm a non resident and I included It on both the prints card and app. On numerous calls to them for actual status updates they use it to verify me. A SS to me is not something I worry about keeping confidential on legal apps.

    Your SSN is absolutely not required. However if there are felons who share your name, it makes it easier for them to identify you. Without it, your application may be denied and require appeal, or they may delay it while they try to positively identify you.

    On the other hand, the fingerprint card is absoltely required. All applicants must have their fingerprint cards examined by the FBI before your Florida CCW will be issued.
    Yes, I worry that I may be killed by my own gun...

    But my attacker will have to use it to beat me to death because it will be out of bullets!

    like the application for your drivers license/ID card/Passport, which they DO require for a Concealed license.

    They'll get your State Slave Number one way or another.

    Your SS# is on the other documents that they have so i didn't see why not so... another thing they don't tell you up front is you do not have to pay for gun classes (CCW classes) if you have other proof. I used my NRA score sheets from High Power Service Rifle competitions. I put a print out of two years of score sheets in my packet and had no problem. I also went to my Sheriff's office and did the finger print thing and saved a few bucks on the hard copy. If you don't have the years of firearms use and grow up with them, get the training. Your freedom and rights come with a price and that is to be a responsible and ready American. Know your limitations and act right.
