If enacted this bill would allow you to go to another town or to the state police to get fingerprinted. This would prove helpful for those towns that use delaying of fingerprinting as an excuse to restrict you from getting a permit to carry pistols or revolvers. Please contact the Committee on Public Safety and Security and tell them to support this bill.
