It looks like The Dana Show has uncovered a sticky situation in Missouri…
Department of Revenue is working with the Department of Homeland Security to install new hard and software to obtain data on Missouri citizens and transfer this information to DHS and unnamed third parties, says Kinder. Kinder and the Stoddard County Prosceutor today took legal action and held a press conference outlining the infringement on civil liberties as posted by the DoR and DHS. The move by the departments is related to the Real ID.
An immediate temporary restraining order has been put into place while this gets hashed out in court. This is going to be a very important battle that we must, repeat MUST win.
The other big question that needs to be answered here is what other states is this going on in? Many states around the country use the DMV to issue CCWs since they are a state issued ID. I would bet dollars to donuts that Missouri is not the only place in which this is happening.
