State Lawmakers are calling for an independent investigation into the sharing of a state list of concealed weapon permit holders with the federal government.  Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones sent a letter to Attorney General Chris Koster’s office this week asking for a commission to study the information sharing. Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond says he and the entire Missouri Sheriff’s Association are watching this story closely.

Attention was brought to the issue this spring after a lawsuit was filed by a Stoddard County man against the Department of Revenue; house speaker Jones also wants a special panel to look into new Revenue Department licensing procedures that make electronic copies of applicants’ personal documents.
