The Columbia Tribune is reporting some disturbing news.

Apparently, state authorities in Missouri have, not once, but twice turned over confidential information on their carry permit holders to the federal government.

State Senator Kurt Schaefer has been leading the investigation.

“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.”

Apparently over 185,000 names were put online for access at one point and copied onto a disc during another instance.

If all of the above is true that is certainly disturbing.

Missouri carry permit info is confidential under state law.
