JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says his administration will stop making electronic copies of people's concealed gun permits.

Nixon announced the policy reversal Tuesday after several weeks of criticism from Republicans who said the new document copying policy of the Department of Revenue was an invasion of privacy.

The Democratic governor said his administration had "determined that the scanning and retention of concealed carry certificates are not essential to the integrity of the license issuance process."

The Department of Revenue handles concealed carry permits because it is responsible for issuing photo identification cards or placing a concealed weapons endorsement on people's driver's licenses.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Republican congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer wants federal officials to explain their agencies' roles in the transfer from Missouri of personal information including names of people with concealed weapons permits.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Thursday it twice provided a list of 163,000 Missourians with concealed-carry permits to a federal investigator checking into Social Security fraud. But patrol officials also said the names weren't read because of a technical glitch.

Luetkemeyer, whose U.S. House district includes Jefferson City, wrote Thursday to the Social Security Administration and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

He wants answers to 10 questions, including whether federal agencies requested a complete list of Missourians with concealed gun permits and whether they sought other information. Luetkemeyer also asked how information is to be used and whether data has been shared.
