I wanted to obtain my permit but I had a question about the fingerprinting aspect of obtaining one. I assume your prints are submitted to AFIS when you apply for your permit. I have already been fingerprinted by the INS because I am a permanent resident alien. I work for the federal government and I have also been fingerprinted for my job. Do you think my prints are already on file or in AFIS? Can they use the ones on file for my permit so I don't have to submit the again? If they are not, I don't know whether I want to apply for a permit.
