JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – 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 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.
The concealed weapons bill is HB803.
