I'm trying to reconcile the recent decision by the Tennessee State Legislature to:
...end a requirement for Tennessee firearms dealers to take the thumbprints of people buying guns.... (NewsChannel 5)and their desire to authorize:
... the affixing of the person’s fingerprint to the citation instead of or in addition to the person’s signature. (Ben Cunningham)My understanding is that the thumbprints for guns was often illegible and rarely requested. So now we think that police officer's will be more able to obtain a legible print from drivers on the side of the road in a citation book than a gun dealer can on a post card at a store counter?
