If you don’t belong to the NRA you don’t get updates like I do from the NRA-ILA about stuff going on in my area revolving around anything firearms or something that may infringe on my 2nd Amendment rights. You probably have heard about the recent debacle with the Missouri Department of Revenue. If you haven’t read up on my blog as I have several posts regarding the subject. Here is what NRA sent out to me this morning:

“As we have previously reported, the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) initiated a new and dangerous procedure of scanning, keeping and sharing personal documents with the federal government related to the issuance of your driver’s license and right to carry permit. This recordkeeping and sharing of private documents by the DOR is a serious violation of public trust and the Missouri Legislature is taking swift action to remove DOR’s role in the permit issuing process by pursuing enactment of House Bill 8.

HB 8, sponsored by state Representative Rick Stream (R-90) and spearheaded through the Missouri Senate by Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer (R-19), is a funding measure that transfers the authority for issuance of Right-to-Carry permit certificates and the permits themselves from the DOR to Missouri sheriffs.

To pursue this evolving issue and obtain answers on these invasions of privacy, the Senate Appropriations Committee is holding hearings in the following cities to receive public input on HB 8, and how it relates to the budget and funding process.

Please attend these important meetings and thank the Senate Appropriations Committee for taking the appropriate steps to protect the privacy of Missouri’s permit holders.”

I stumbled on this when I was looking at other blogs and the attention they were getting regarding the Boston Bombing. This guy has quite the article with pictures and different theories. I will leave the deciding up to you…..

I received this last week in an update from NRA-ILA about the recent reports of the State Highway Patrol and other agencies including the DMV sharing conceal and carry information with the federal government. Read more the letter snippet below

“Last night, the Missouri Senate unanimously approved House Bill 8, a funding measure that transfers to Missouri sheriffs the authority for issuance of Right-to-Carry permit certificates and the permits themselves from the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR). As previously reported, there have been several reports that the DOR was collecting and sharing personal documents from individuals receiving a concealed carry endorsement with third parties, including the federal government. This recordkeeping and sharing of private documents by the DOR is a serious violation of public trust. Please contact your state Senator and thank him or her for voting for HB 8, an important measure to protect your right to privacy. HB 8 will now be sent back to the state House for a concurrence vote.

Not only is the Missouri Legislature taking swift action to remove DOR’s role in the permit issuing process, they are also acting on legislation that would prohibit the DOR from sharing personal information with the federal government or other agencies. House Bill 787 and Senate Bill 252 seek to limit the DOR’s ability to scan, store and share your private information. HB 787, sponsored by state Representative Todd Richardson (R-152), has been assigned to the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and SB 252, sponsored by state Senator Will Kraus (R-8), has been assigned to the House Government Oversight Committee.

While HB 787 and SB 252 are currently awaiting a committee hearing, please contact members of these committees TODAY in support of legislation that would protect your privacy rights.”
