Lee County’s Jay Jones was among several sheriffs from across the state to voice opposition to Senate Bill 129 and House Bill 55 during the Alabama Sheriffs’ Association Winter Training Conference last week, citing concerns including public safety over enforcement of the proposed firearms legislation.

“I feel like it (SB129) has several elements if enacted, would present problems not just for the Sheriff’s Office but for law enforcement in the state of Alabama in general,” Jones said. “House Bill 55 is not as all-inclusive as (Senate Bill) 129, but it has some of the same elements in it.”
