Missouri bill would bar sharing of concealed carry list

The measure responds to Republican objections that a list of concealed gun permit holders based on data kept by the state’s driver’s license agency was provided to a federal Social Security investigator.

A Missouri House panel has endorsed legislation making it illegal to share a list of every concealed weapons permit holder in the state.

The measure responds to Republican objections that a list of concealed gun permit holders based on data kept by the state’s driver’s license agency was provided to a federal Social Security investigator looking for potential disability fraud.

The bill endorsed Monday by a House committee, HB803, would also free license office clerks from legal liability if they were sued for following department rules. It is sponsored by Republican Rep. Wanda Brown, of Lincoln.
