Alabama Sheriffs Association Director Bobby Timmons Wants To Repeal The Second Amendment

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 1 week ago

I didn’t make that up.  He said so.

Alabama Sheriffs Association (ASA) director Robert ‘Bobby’ Timmons is standing by his criticism of the Constitutional carry bills set to be debated in the Alabama legislature, even going so far as to say he would support amending the United States Constitution.

Timmons has claimed several times that the Second Amendment was not written to give citizens the right to carry a weapon in a concealed fashion, saying that the amendment was only written to allow citizens to have weapons to defend their homes.

Given his interpretation of the Second Amendment, 1819 News asked Timmons if ASA would support amending the Constitution to limit the Second Amendment to the possession of firearms only for the defense of a person’s home.

“Oh yeah,” Timmons said. “I’d be in favor of that. But, I mean, it would never get passed.”

According to Timmons, the ASA is working with Mom’s Demand Action – which bills itself as a “grassroots movement” that fights for more restrictive gun laws – to fight against Constitutional carry laws that have been introduced into the current session of the Alabama legislature. “Constitutional carry” is a term used to describe legislation that would allow citizens to legally carry handguns without having to purchase a permit from their local Sheriff’s office.

Three bills pre-filed in the Alabama House and Senate would legalize permitless or “Constitutional Carry” in the state. Rep. Andrew Sorell (R) pre-filed House Bill 44 (HB44), along with a coalition of 38 Republicans. The bill would eliminate the need for a person to obtain a concealed carry permit in order to carry a pistol. It would also repeal and revise certain restrictions on the carrying or possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle or on certain property or locations.

Rep. Shane Stringer (R) and Rep. Proncey Robertson (R) pre-filed House Bill 6 (HB6). Sen. Tim Melson filed an identical companion bill in the Senate (SB12). These two bills would also allow for “permitless carry” and would create a process for the return of seized pistols.

All three bills would leave the current concealed carry permitting system in place for Alabamans who want to obtain a license in order to carry concealed in states with CCDW reciprocity with Alabama.

So not only is the Sheriffs association being led by someone who doesn’t believe in the 2A, they are working with a gun control group to kill constitutional carry in Alabama.

It sounds to me like Alabamans have some trash to carry out.  This is on y’all.  You have work to do.  Get it done.  And find out who else in the respective Sheriffs departments supports this guy and his agenda.  Carry out that trash too.

    I find it hard to believe such a person could have been elected to his position — in Alabama — had his views on the 2nd amendment been widely known. Next, you’ll tell me his county includes Pinson. Then I’ll know that it’s really April 1st and not sometime in January.

    Why it’s almost as if there is something sinister in mind from the infernal swamp of Hades in DC where we need to be unarmed.
    Unarmed for ditch digging while they hold guns over us on the other side.

    Yup, digging our own graves after being disarmed. I don’t think so, not this time! Once the bodies of the fully vaccinated start stacking up those responsible for this genocide should be forced to dig the graves of the millions they killed and then their own.

    Wait! If the 2a, according to Timmons, was only written to “allow citizens to have weapons to defend their homes” then why does he also say that the constitution needs to be amended to this effect?

    And the government doesn’t “allow” anything. It either codifies and defends our rights or it violates the law of God in Romans 13.

    1 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.” Romans 13:1-4

    This is obviously prescriptive and not descriptive especially since there was a great conspiracy of evil among the ruling class of Sanhedrin and the Roman Caesars when this was written. It’s also fully enjoined, as are all of God’s commands.

    What Sheriff Timmons doesn’t seem to understand is that since murderers, rapists and robbers have no problem killing, raping or stealing they are not likely to obey a law which prohibits them from carrying a gun. He also doesn’t seem to understand that law abiding citizens, since they are law abiding citizens and don’t want to go to jail, are very likely not to carrying a gun because they will go to jail if they get caught. So then we have career criminals walking the streets with guns and abiding citizens walking the street without the ability to defend themselves. THIS MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER

    It may be that the man is suffering cognitive decline and his judgment is impaired. Regardless, those around him need emphasize “retirement”.

    Transplant Alabamian here, and BamaCarry member. We have been fighting Bobby “Boss Hogg” Timmons for a long time, but I think once word gets about about this interview, I think he’s done.

    The Bill of Rights is an enumeration, a listing, of pre-existing rights. If that right is stricken from the list, it doesn’t mean that the right ceases to exist, it means that the government chooses to war against the people, its reason for existing is no more. Inherent and inalienable are words with meaning.

    Who elected this Boss Hog idiot that wants to take your guns? He doesn’t believe the 2nd amendment to the Constitution  applies to “We the People,” only folks in charge! Wake up and vote this Jack-leg poser out of office. Unbelievable that I had to learn this from NEWSMAX.com

    This director/president needs to go. Period. He took an oath to the constitution U.S. and Alabama. He is acting like The Gestapo in his own state. Alabama Constitution Article 1 Section 26 says it all. “Every citizen has a fundamental right to bear arms in defense of himself or herself and the state.  Any restriction on this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny. No citizen shall be compelled by any international treaty or international law to take an action that prohibits, limits, or otherwise interferes with his or her fundamental right to keep and bear arms in defense of himself or herself and the state, if such treaty or law, or its adoption, violates the United States Constitution.”

    A Right, is no longer a Right, if you have to get permission from a bureaucrat to exercise it
