"Boss Hogg": Bobby Timmons of the Alabama Sheriff's Association.
Just to demonstrate that Connecticut doesn't have a monopoly on uniformed thug thinking: Gun owners, sheriffs debate allowing loaded guns in cars without permits
"I don't think this has anything to do with the Second amendment when you have the right to carry this weapon off your property. Your automobile is not your property," said Bobby Timmons, executive director of the Sheriff's Association.
The deal is, this is about the right of small-town, light-population-density county sheriffs to tax the shit out of lawful firearm owners in order to support their bloated lifestyles. The Sheriff's Association has always been the worst opponent of open carry in this state for that precise reason. And now they are in desperation saying that "Your automobile is not your property"???? Really?
As the friend who forwarded this to me wrote:
We have GOT to find the video of Bobby Timmons actually saying this. It didn't make it into the clip on the 33-40 page but I saw video of him actually saying it during the 9:30 Fox 6 newscast. . . (I)f my vehicle isn't my private property then why has the Supreme Court ruled probable cause or a warrant is required to search it? We need to make that quisling own his tyrant attitude.
Agreed. I've got some other fish to fry right now, but if the Alabama open carry community doesn't do that they're missing a great opportunity.
