Internal Sheriffs Association email shows that money drives pistol permit law

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 22:31
The battle over SB24 just keeps getting stranger. The legislation introduced by Senator Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa) removes the requirement for Alabamians to obtain a license before carrying a concealed pistol. The Alabama Sheriffs Association doesn't want to change a thing. Plenty of Alabama's legislators agree that law-abiding Alabamians shouldn't be forced to secure a license and pay a fee to exercise their Second Amendment rights. A recent internal email suggests that the Sheriffs Association isn't necessarily negotiating in good faith. An email from Timmons called on sheriffs to contact their legislators "if you value your permit fund." He specifically warned against a compromise that would clearly benefit Alabama's gun owners. "The National Rifle Association WILL return next time the Legislature meets to bring back Jabo [Waggoner's] 'any county bill' and will push for uniform -- one cost -- statewide permit fee...if any fee at all!"
