FBI Responds To Schmitt’s Cease And Desist Letter

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is taking issue with Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s claim that the audit of firearms data they’re conducting next month is illegal. 

In a statement released Friday on Twitter, the F-B-I’s Kansas City office calls the audit “routine” and says Missouri has participated “multiple times, most recently in 2018.” 

The statement also says F-B-I auditors won’t be seeking to access any list of conceal-carry holders in Missouri. 

Schmitt said in a letter last week that accessing the records of Missourians violates state law and Second Amendment rights. 

Schmitt is running in the Republican primary for U-S Senate next month.
