This is why many who would get a concealed carry permit do not do so. Obviously, if you apply to buy a gun or get a license to carry a gun (violation of 2nd amendment) then if the government wants to use that list to take guns they know where to go first. Please note they are looking for people with “mental” and other disabilities who have guns.
I was talking with a friend yesterday and asked them when they first started seeing these anti-depression pill ads on tv. You know, the ones that ask if you have struggled with being tired, down, just can’t get out of that hole? Also, isn’t ADHD mental? So, all those children diagnosed a decade ago as ADHD are now mentally ill. The government is cross
Highway patrol gave feds Missouri weapon permits data
By Rudi Keller
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.
Under Missouri law, the names of concealed weapon permit holders are confidential. The only place in Missouri where the names of all concealed carry permit holders is stored is among driver license records. Permit holders have a special mark on their licenses indicating they have been granted the privilege of carrying a gun.
The list was given to the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General, Schaefer said he was told.
“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.” MORE
If you think the government has not already taken your name, address, and other vital information down when you bought your gun at a store or now ammunition, they you are not living in reality. News like this trickles out well after the fact. And, with Obamacare, they are going to use all those lists to cross reference anyone who is not deemed supportive of the Fed. Libertarian, Tea Party, NRA, Patriot rallies and bumper stickers are all clues to who is not supportive of tyranny. The Fusion centers spend all their time making such lists. Of course its said they are needed to keep us safe.
No, they are needed because the government is scared to death of the people rising up before the government has everything in place. Pretty soon though things will be all in place and rise up all you want surfs.
