Skip to comments.Why Are the Feds Trying to Identify All Gun Owners in Missouri? (Just concealed carry!)

They keep telling you they have noting but good intentions, that to worry about the feds coming for your guns makes you part of “the black helicopter crowd.” But then things like this happen: In Missouri, federal investigators have demanded and obtained from the state government — apparently twice — the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders.
As Matt Drudge notes, the Columbia Daily Tribune reports that in November 2011 and January 2012, the state highway patrol asked for and received the list of about 185,000 concealed weapon permit holders from the motor vehicle department — the only state agency to store all the names, because an indication that one is a permit holder is noted on driver’s licenses. The information is supposed to be held confidentially by the state, but it was turned over — once on-line, once on a disk — to the highway police, which then proceeded to share it with the federal Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General. State senators trying to get to the bottom of what happened, have been told there was no written request for the information. The state highway patrol says, “The information was provided to law enforcement for law enforcement investigative purposes” — not a very enlightening explanation of why every single licensed concealed weapon owner needed to be investigated by state and federal police.
Rob Schaaf, a Republican state senator who is pursuing the matters summed it up this way: “Now we know two things. We know that somebody out there, probably in the federal government, wants the list of all the concealed carry holders in Missouri. We know that now. We know one other piece of information – we know the [highway patrol] department is actively and purposefully concealing that information from us.”
People will simply hide their guns.

Wake up, people! Government does not stop until the people stop it.
Your activism and political passion are always appreciated.
Re: “Are the feds going to be making presumptive diagnoses of dementia based on age, and then say you're too old to have firearms?”
I'd be in favor of presumptive diagnoses for criminal behavior.
If they disarmed all Black males, America's murder and robbery rate would drop by 50%.
The House of Representatives should gut this bill and change it so that it applies only the VOTER ID requirements, and NOT to gun control.
Prosecute the State Patrol involved, put them in jail!

Agreed. If we don't successfully fight them within the system now, we'll be fighting them in the streets, later.
There will no end of excuses and duplicitous behavior aimed at denying Americans their 2nd Amendment rights. Up next; Americans' 1st Amendment rights. The looters will not stop until all the Bill of Rights are wiped off the face of the Earth.
Because they're fascist tyrants too arrogant and power-hungry to realize that 99.99% of our lives is none of their effing business?
Missouri Democrat governor Jay Nixon is MIA on the issue.
This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.

We had a vote here in KS about guns and the mentally ill and people voted that even the mentally ill have a right to defend themselves. Even my obama loving colleague voted that way.
I agree. Time to push legislation everywhere and on all topics. Keep the leftards busy and exhaust them.
There is ONE solution at this point... as I am sure many of you have identified. Sell all your licensed firearms... and allow all your permits and licenses to expire.
Buy guns like criminals do.
You are now a criminal.
