Feds dropped project after getting Missouri gun data

Saturday, 13 April 2013 07:54 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Social Security Administration says one of its fraud investigators received a readable list of Missourians who have concealed-weapons permits but that the list was later destroyed.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday that the agent received the list in a readable format from the Missouri State Highway Patrol in January.

Patrol officials told a Missouri Senate committee Thursday the data were never accessed at the federal level because of a technical glitch. But the Social Security Administration's Office of Inspector General told The Post-Dispatch the unreadable version was sent to the agent in 2011.

The investigator was planning to check if anyone who met Missouri's mental health qualifications for a weapons permit had also sought benefits for a mental disability. But the project was dropped.

One Boeing employee faces charges after authorities found meth-making materials in one of the company's buildings yesterday.

Prosecuting Attorneys say Dennis Banker admitted to police that he not only put the materials in another employee's office, but left a note saying another employee was the one who brought the chemicals into the office. Authorities were alerted to the situation when a fire alarm tripped early Thursday morning.

A check of security cameras showed, Banker entered the building minutes before the alarm.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri sheriffs say they stand ready to issue photo ID cards for concealed gun holders if the Legislature helps pay for the equipment.

The Missouri Sheriffs' Association said Friday that it's willing to work with legislators on efforts to shift the responsibility of producing the cards from the state Department of Revenue to the local sheriffs who already handle applications.

Some lawmakers want to strip the Revenue Department of the duty because of concerns that agency databases on concealed gun permit holders could be used to infringe on their privacy rights.

The Revenue Department recently began making electronic copies of concealed gun permits. The Highway Patrol also has acknowledged that it got a list of concealed gun permit holders from the department and shared it with a federal investigator.
