Gun trade in Florida thumbprint required?

I was watching a transaction at one of the biggest gunstore groups in C.Florida and when did they start filling out the pawn shop form and requiring a thumbprint on a gun trade?

I have not traded a gun for a long time to a dealer in Florida so maybe I missed the change?

Anybody have an idea

This was not a pawn shop nor was this a pawn transaction. The buyer was trading a revolver and $100 for a 9mm automatic. The Federal form was filled out and then came the pawn form.

no thumb print required
Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.

Could just be that particular business's policy to do that.

Thumb print is required in florida for all PAWN shop deals where the pawn broker is the BUYER of ANY THING!!!

The Gun Dealer may have a pawn broker license for the purpose of taking in guns. If he offers a pawn service for guns, he would be required to get a rt. thumb print to take in a gun.

Just a guess...
