Surprised a DNA swab got left out.
they are doing a complete body cavity search instead of a standard DNA swab, better believe they will know about your family history, they are going to know what you had for dinner, at the same time run full toxicology and they swing by your house on trash day and get your garbage to rummage through. In the small print it says they will have rights to your images on social media your complete browser and google search history.

I thought you only got fingerprinted if you were charged with a crime. I guess now we're all criminals for wanting to buy a firearm.
 
Welcome to the WA gun registry. The place where once they have you in the registry they can utilize their yearly background check (which is already law in WA) and confiscate all your firearms if you are found to be ineligible for any reason (see below).

This is why I've been saying for years Gun registry\permit is the most dangerous law they can pass. They can pass new gun restrictions at any time (such as home storage inspection) and if you don't follow all its restrictions you can be ineligible to own any firearms.

Another state i lived in 20 years ago required fingerprinting for a permit to purchase a pistol. So not unprecedented but still pretty icky.
