WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Missouri Congressman at the forefront of pursuing answers from federal agencies regarding the sharing of the list of Missouri's conceal and carry weapons permit holders indicated Thursday there is no evidence of any wrong-doing.
Missouri 3rd District Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer spoke face-to-face with Inspector General of the Social Security Administration (SSA), Patrick O'Carroll. Luetkemeyer had written O'Carroll a letter containing ten questions regarding how O'Carroll's office had obtained the list of CCW permit holders and what had happened to that list.
O'Carroll provided answers to all ten questions in writing. Afterwards, Luetkemeyer, who had been highly critical of the discovery that the Missouri Highway Patrol had shared the CCW list with a federal agency, indicated the case had been resolved to his satisfaction.
"It's important for me to hear from federal officials directly and I am satisfied with the result of the discussion," Luetkemeyer said.
