You may be right. I find that folks often tell me things they think are true or should be true, but might not be.
To my knowledge, the FBI has nothing to do with fingerprinting or the acceptability of fingerprints.
Of course the State does the fingerprinting.
The state law says:
A full set of fingerprints of the applicant administered by the Department of Public Safety;
The Department of Public Safety . . . shall forward the full set of fingerprints of the applicant to the appropriate agencies for state and federal processing [whatever that means--NRA_guy].
In the event a legible set of fingerprints, as determined by the Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, cannot be obtained after a minimum of two (2) attempts, the Department of Public Safety shall determine eligibility based upon a name check by the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol and a Federal Bureau of Investigation name check conducted by the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol at the request of the Department of Public Safety.
I expect all this will be moot before Obama gets through.
