Highway patrol gave feds Missouri weapon permits data

Missouri's database of concealed weapon permits was twice given to federal authorities investigating Social Security disability fraud in a move that has enraged lawmakers already angry over potential abuses in a new driver's licensing system.




The data was turned over because the Office of Inspector General is a law enforcement agency, Replogle said. It was done by a mid-level supervisor at the patrol. Replogle said he was not informed of the transfer until four weeks ago.

The intention was to cross-check the names on the concealed carry list with the agency's list of those with disabilities attributed to mental illness to find possible evidence of fraud in the system.

2. But I thought y'all wanted to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill!

 

But then you whine when action is actually taken? What's up with that?

3. Far too often: right idea but poor implementation.
