here's your subpoena.
Yesterday, Missouri state Senator Kurt Shaefer
subpoenaed the the Missouri Department of Revenue to produce all
documents between the Department of Revenue and any federal agency,
including but not limited to, the Department of Homeland Security or
FEMA, regarding driver’s license and ID information of Missouri
Information on the subpoena at the link; more over here from Dana Loesch.
If you're not familiar with this, it all started
Oliver said Mr. Griffin went to his local Department of Motor
Vehicles fee office after passing the application process for a
concealed carry gun permit. When he refused to let DMV employees scan
some of his documentation, he was denied the permit.
Oliver said Griffin acted within his rights. He said the Department
of Revenue apparently installed new computer equipment to record the
information as part of the federal Real ID Act of 2005.
But state laws prohibit the department from retaining and collecting
these types of documents and from complying with that portion of the
Real ID Act. The data the DOR collected was being forwarded to Morpho
Trust U.S.A., a Georgia company that specializes in partnering with
state and federal governmental agencies.
Yeah, whatever could go wrong there?
...not only is the Missouri Department of Revenue colluding with the
Department of Homeland Security and other third parties to illegally
share Missourians’ conceal carry information, the DOR is also gathering
and storing biometric data on every Missourian who gets a license.
Schaefer notes that the collection of biometric data was never
discussed with Missouri lawmakers and that it was discovered quite by
accident when suspicious Missourians questioned why the DOR would want
their marriage licenses and a multitude of other information simply to
renew their conceal carry permits. When Schaefer confronted the DOR,
they twice lied to the senator, claiming that the DHS grant money was
for things like “hole punchers.” Schaefer later learned the DHS grant
money was actually used towards items like facial recognition hardware
and software. It’s not only backdoor gun registration, but a massive
invasion of privacy as well.
It raises two interesting questions: what else is the DOR lying about and what did Gov. Jay Nixon know and when did he know it?
And what's going to come out when people are put under oath?
