Due to an increasing number of ink fingerprints that are rejected by the state because of poor IAFIS quality, effective on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014, the Franklin Police Department will no longer provide ink fingerprints for gun permit applicants. All applicants will be required to obtain inkless fingerprints. Applicants may do so by scheduling an appointment with MorphoTrust USA (formerly L1 Enrollment) @ during the online gun permit application process or after they have completed the application process.
