Missouri gives list of permit holders to Federal agency
"The list was given to the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General, Schaefer said he was told.
“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. "
SSI? IG? There is the (Federal) Privacy Act, which requires every agency to publish annually a list of its databases. I doubt this list of 100,000+ people was published by SSI. The IG is supposed to investigate "fraud, waste, and abuse." The only connection I can even speculate is the IG wanted to call anyone with a mental disability and tell them (incorrectly in many cases) that they can't own guns, in hopes they would give up their (rather tiny) pension.
Of course there's the more likely motive: someone in the SSI IG judged that harassing gun owners would get him brownie points with the boss at his annual job assessment. In this case the boss is ... well, the IG reports directly to the head of the Department.
