Missouri Broke Own State Law, Shared Detailed Conceal Carry Records With Feds:
This story is gun registration opponents worst nightmares coming true. Missouri officials broke their own laws and shared detailed conceal carry records with the feds.
Dana Loesch is all over this story:
The Missouri State Highway Patrol has twice turned over the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders to federal authorities, most recently in January, Sen. Kurt Schaefer said Wednesday.
Not sure which side to take ….
No self-awareness. MT @jrubinblogger: If Mother Jones acts as a political operative and not as journalists do they lose 1st Amendment…

Here’s today’s billion-dollar question: Are Republicans going to allow the administration to spend more money on Obamacare?
Don’t count on it.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
When governments start breaking their own laws, as in the case of Missouri, what recourse do the people have? It seems to me that the rule of law requires that people respect the law, and if the laws are being broken by the very government, then respect for the law and for the rule of law is diminished greatly.
Laws that specify no consequences for their violation are not laws, they are window dressing intended to to fool the rubes in the sticks.
New York State Police are seizing lawful handguns in violation of HIPPA and the Second Amendment.
Jen Rubin is an idiot.
Jen Rubin is a ruling class tool.
Jen Rubin thinks the first amendment somehow applies differently to ‘journalists.’
Jen Rubin has no clue about the Bill of Rights, much less natural rights.
Folks, I have a tinfoily hat feeling that something is up. Seriously, too much of this info from multiple sources landing up with the feds. This is **not** an accident.
Regarding the last item in the post, “Starve the beast,” suggesting the GOP won’t allow further ObamaCare funding, this has to be a joke. The GOP House was given everything it needed to defund O’care, and refused to even consider it, wouldn’t allow it to be discussed, watched billions flood out the door for set up costs. They stuck a defunding measure in a GOP House controlled committee where it was “hung up” for over a year. The GOP loves ObamaCare, has never had any intention of defunding it, wants big gov. as much as dems. They especially like ObamaCare because it sticks it to the Tea Party.
Besides the things you mentioned, I think the GOPe is in bed with the insurance companies.
Missouri, New York, Washington DC…process, process, process, process, process, process. As Glenn Reynolds says over, and over, and over again: “Laws are for the little people.” Senator Schaefer is probably a nice guy. (Yawn) He wants to make sure it doesn’t happen again. (Yawn) Going to address it through the budget process! (Yawn) Gonna have hearings. (Yawn) And not once during his chat with Dana Loesch did he say there would be consequences. Not. One. Time. (Nor, disappointingly, did she ask.)
How about firing people. How about denying them access to all their work computer systems and files, taking their IDs, building keys, passes, state cars, sending security to their offices to escort them out of the building, then pressing charges? How’s that for a plan? Never. Happen. What a joke.
Remember Saul Alinsky: “It’s never about what it’s about.” If some gun legislation emerges from all this, and it will, that’s just icing on the cake. The goal is a national data base. Medical records, social security records, tax records, concealed carry licenses, motor vehicle records, voter records, criminal records, registrations of every sort, you name it. That is the goal, it’s what congress says over and over; registration, registration, registration. The conversation is always the same, listen to the interview: someone somewhere wants to run his data base against someone else’s database because (fill in the blank). To purchase a fishing license – A FISHING LICENSE – in PA you must provide your social security number. Why? Here it comes… because, it’s a way for them to catch fathers who are missing their child support payments (and, one supposes, buying fishing licenses)! The horror!
It has just started and it’s going to get worse, much worse.
Thumbs up! (BTW, I’m holding off donating to LI until the thumbs return…hint, hint…)
I don’t want to view the vid but what is that building behind her. ?
The Building is St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans.
Thank you – it is just gorgeous . I figured by the light i& foliage it was Norleans . Like everything there except her .
The democrats now have a cause mostly of their own creation.
We are the enemy which must be neutralized regardless of cost.
I never thought that I would see anything like this in my lifetime but I surely calculated wrong.
We may be nearing the period when our only recourse is resistance…
Civil disobedience is probably our only recourse that is peaceful. It may be, at some point, the only option is to ignore all the unconstitutional laws since they have no legal basis to begin with. The Supreme Court is NOT the final arbiter of what is constitutional.
It’s already going wrong on a national level:
As I’ve noted elsewhere, there are spaces on the FFL background check form for information on the gun being purchased.
What has that to do with a background check on the purchaser?
We need to lobby to get this changed!
Hmmm. Isn’t it interesting – when you or I break the law, we go to prison, have our property confiscated, and generally have our lives ruined by the government.
When government violates their end of the social contract that binds society… well, nothing happens really. Suckers!
