More TN Department of Safety Stuff
arfcommer calls the DOS and does some digging:
I called this afternoon and spoke with a very nice lady in the Handgun Permit department.
The reason for the change is that there have been some ‘forged’ certificates coming in, and the purpose of sending the rosters is to match them against the certificates.
The lady I spoke with said that they were revising the roster form so that there would not be any record of the specific firearm that was used in the class.
The only thing that she said that was even remotely negative was that she wished that NRA-ILA, TFA, etc. had contacted them directly so that they could have avoided the ‘fuss’.
I understand her point of view, but occasionally it’s good that the government be exposed to some fuss so they know we’re watching them.
