AL.Com reports "Alabama sheriffs' group seeks more control of gun permits." This is pure crap. What this is about is the sheriffs want to protect the money gravy train that they support their departments with at the expense of Alabama firearm owners.
Herschel Smith comments:
So Alabama Sheriff’s have too much control over gun permits (when there shouldn’t be any such thing as a gun permit at all), and they want even more! Totalitarians don’t just live up North. They ensconce themselves wherever they’re allowed, and Alabama had better nip this in the bud. You don’t need boys like that hanging around causing trouble.
