Some scary stuff coming out of Missouri

This is some scary stuff coming out of Missouri.  I wonder what other states are setting us up for a fall.

“Missouri State Senator Kurt Schaefer confirmed today that the Missouri Highway Department did in fact share confidential CCW lists with the federal government in violation of Missouri law.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has twice turned over the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders to federal authorities, most recently in January, Sen. Kurt Schaefer said Wednesday.

Questioning in the Senate Appropriations Committee revealed that on two occasions, in November 2011 and again in January, the patrol asked for and received the full list from the state Division of Motor Vehicle and Driver Licensing. Schaefer later met in his office with Col. Ron Replogle, superintendent of the patrol.

After the meeting, he said Replogle had given him sketchy details about turning over the list, enough to raise many more questions. Testimony from Department of Revenue officials revealed that the list of 185,000 names had been put online in one instance and given to the patrol on a disc in January.”

I’ve been following this story for weeks and today spoke with Sen. Schaefer on my program about this issue. Earlier he stripped the Department of Revenue of their budget, around $3.5 million.

Additionally:

“Apparently from what I understand, they wanted to match up anyone who had a mental diagnosis or disability with also having a concealed carry license,” Schaefer said. “What I am told is there is no written request for that information.”

How is it that agencies who answer directly to Governor Jay Nixon were allowed to repeatedly break Missouri law unless sanctioned by the governor himself? Missouri state law prohibits the full compliance with the Real ID act, so who gave these departments the go-ahead and will Attorney General Chris Koster uphold Missouri law and take action?

What??????  This is a total slap in the face.  Feds telling us there is no data base, huh?  BS.  This sets a precedent for other states to follow, especially blue states like California, New York, and Illinois.  Folks, this is some pretty major stuff.  Don’t let the media discount it and make you think it’s no big deal.
