JEFFERSON CITY 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.
Schaefer has been investigating a new driver licensing system. He and the committee grilled the revenue officials for several hours in the morning and again at midday before they admitted the list had been copied. The investigation was triggered by fears that concealed weapons data was being shared with federal authorities.

I'd be happy if some of the cast of characters lost their jobs.
Henry Bowman is not pleased.
Holder has the list now..
When they turn over the entire list of concealed carry holders in the state of Missouri to the federal government, where is it going? he said. I want to know who all was involved in this transaction because if this is just some phone call saying give me the list of all concealed carry holders, how did the person at the patrol who fulfilled that request know who was at the other end of the phone? How did they know where to send it? How did they know what it was being used for?
Maybe Jack Boots come with a hidden phone and decode ring ala Max Smart?
Color me uninformed, but I thought that it was still currently illegal for the Federal government to create and keep information in a gun registry. Not that this A.G. or Administration give a rats a** about the Constitution or law.
They are breaking several Missouri state laws by sharing the information.
“Holder has the list now..”
The Obama political operatives also. And they probably have all kinds of other data that was obtained by Social Security matching against a great variety of federal and state records.
The patrol responded by confirming that it had shared the list of concealed weapons holders with federal authorities.
“The information was provided to law enforcement for law enforcement investigative purposes,” Capt. Tim Hull wrote in an email response to questions from the Tribune.
Well then, I guess that make it OK to flagrantly violate State law?
“I’d be happy if some of the cast of characters lost their jobs.”
I would be even happier if a few prominent members of the laws-only-for-little-people crowd found out the hard way that that the law applies to everyone or it applies to no one.
1. Don’t get a permit. Why do you need permission? This article shows the end result.
2. No law enforcement will support us.
I’m fairly certain most people have been seriously rethinking support for all levels of law enforcement for many years.
Obviously, we needed to do so.
For those just now waking up and cluing into the problem...welcome to the coming anarchy!
Some years back Missouri passed a law that asset forfeiture money from drug busts would go to the schools, instead of the law enforcement agency that made the bust keeping it. The DEA was helping the Highway Patrol get around that law under some kind of federal asset forfeiture sharing program. The HP would catch the suspected drug dealers, then call the feds to come in and actually make the bust so that it was a federal case. The feds would do the asset forfeiture, then kick part of the proceeds directly back the HP, circumventing the state laws.
Honest. Cross our heart. Really.
After all, Obamacare lowered your premiums and allowed you to keep your policy. Honest.
As far as I know that little scheme is still going on.
Shoot, just yesterday it was reported that the EPA gave personal information on more than EIGHTY THOUSAND farm families to radical environmental organizations.
I have to wonder about those DEA “Task Force” programs. They partner with state LEO agencies, and the officers are trained and in some cases paid by the federal government. Local badge, federal everything else. Where do their allegiances lie?

Looks like MO is a Police State.
Hate to make another connection here but these are also the same people who tell us they cannot find illegal aliens to deport them, well that was once the case when the gub’mint pretended to deport, now however, no deportations just awaiting Amnesty (helped out by Rubio and the GOP!)
