A weeks-long controversy involving the state illegally sharing the personal information of Missouri gun owners took a dramatic turn Thursday.
It was in Stoddard County that a lawsuit was filed against the Missouri Department of Revenue and the plaintiff’s attorney says Gov. Nixon shares responsibility.
An attorney is trying to make Gov. Nixon appear for depositions for a lawsuit involving the state’s new driver’s license procedures.
A spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told The AP that the agency was not involved.
GOP lawmakers are raising new concerns about the way Missouri has handled a list of concealed gun permit holders after learning about a plan.
“If they’re going to go after everybody’s guns, they take these people out. They can take them out one at a time.”
The revelation validates the concerns of many Republican state legislators who have warned of the “gun list” for a month.
He’ll audit the Department of Revenue to find out if personal information from driver’s licences and concealed gun applications is being shared with the federal government.
Missouri lawmakers say the Dept. of Revenue lied about gun list and is collecting certain personal information from everyone.
